100’s of contributors
Alongside the core team below who keep 35mmc ticking over behind the scenes, there are 100s of contributors to the site that volunteer their time, thoughts and photography to add content to 35mmc for the benefit of the wider readership.
I started taking photos at the age of 9. Since then I’ve taken photos for a hobby, sold cameras for a living, and for a little more than decade I’ve been a professional photographer and, of course, weekly contributor to 35mmc.
I launched 35mmc.com in May 2013 with the goal of creating a blog and online resource dedicated to 35mm compact cameras. Since then, the website has grown to be quite significantly bigger than I could have ever hoped.
My role at 35mmc now involves sourcing, curating and editing the content submitted to the site by the ever growing community of contributors. I also manage the overall direction of the website and am the first point of content for all enquiries.
Photography has been a companion of mine since I was a kid, spending my days writing fiction stories in my school notebooks and begging to use my mother’s film camera. Nowadays, it’s less companion and more not-so-mild mild obsession. I cannot seem to get enough of (mainly) analogue photography. Cameras, films, filters, methods, philosophy, people, blogs, books, all of it. New and old. Plastic focus-free or mechanical metal rangefinders. It’s a privilege to be able to engage with such a fantastic medium and the community that keeps it alive.
I started writing news for 35mmc in the summer of 2022 and am very excited to continue to find and share news relating to this wonderful website and community.
I’m an amateur photographer who likes making images with pinhole cameras, smartphones and everything in between. I do have a special fondness for vintage film cameras… but who doesn’t! I also enjoy collaborative projects, alternative processes, and developing and printing in my makeshift darkroom.
I joined the 35mmc team in summer 2020. Besides writing about photography, I’m working with Hamish to try and invite a wider range of photography-related content from people with stories to tell and images to share.
I love learning and have an online learning log to chart my self taught journey. However, analog photography is my big passion. I’m really drawn to experimental practices and long to start trying out alternative photographic processes.
I got involved with writing for 35mmc through Sroyon in the Summer of 2020 and fell in love with the community. I’m now helping Sroyon to discover fresh talent to join us as writers.
