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 is all I’ve ever been interested in doing. My parents met while working at Polaroid in the late 1960s, and cameras have always been a part of my life. I studied photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, have worked in photo labs, commercial photography, and camera sales at Central Camera Company in Chicago. I’m also one of the hosts of Classic Lenses Podcast.
I wrote my first review for 35mmc in 2018, and joined the team in 2020 to assist with content development, curation, and site maintenance.
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 and I’m hoping to successfully launch a print zine to showcase the work of some of our fantastic contributors.
I bought my first camera in 2007, when I was 10. I distinctly remember feeling that photography was something I wanted to pursue and that feeling has never left me. I’ve spent most of my photographic career in education with periods of working professionally here and there. I’ve got a penchant for home processing (I’m a cheapskate!) and a bit of a Kodak fanboy.
I’m the new kid on the block at 35mmc and my role will comprise of delivering everyone the newest analogue photography-related releases and news.
