holga + adventures


2010 has been a good year full of travel and adventures to far away lands. My holga always comes on my adventures with me. I dont shoot with it all that often as I prefer shooting with my medium format gear, but sometimes when the weight of my gear gets to much, I go out and explore with my trusty old light as a feather holga. Its always a nice surprise getting these films developed as I normally forget what is on each roll and normally have multiple trips appear on one roll. These images were spread over three rolls of film and include Venice, Berlin, Rome, London, Vancouver, Kalgoorlie and Exmouth.

2011 is going to be another year full of travel. I am wanting to shoot a lot more beloved work this year so I am putting these dates out there in the universe and see what happens :) If you are interested in a beloved shoot (or wedding or mentor session) in any of these locations, please get in contact with me!

    Samm, if you do make your way out to Toronto, I would love to book a session with you. We're celebrating our 12 year (!) anniversary in August. And congrats on your move! How exciting!

    Hi Samm

    i love your work and am keen to know how much your mentor sessions are (fyi - i am a complete novice and have only just bought a slr - but what i probably lack in ability i make up in enthusiasm) - i'm based in Brisbane!

    cheers!

    Oh that's fantastic you're moving to Melbourne! I lived there for 8.5 yrs before moving here to London. I loved it, and will probably be back living there one day :). Great times ahead!

    They're absolutely wonderfull! <3

  • It is a pleasure to see that a photographer has decided to select black-and-white style. They perfectly show the beauty of streets. It is a good idea.

  • ahh, fantastic moods!! seeing these images I want to fly there and be part of it.

  • I really love your black and whites. High contrasts are my absolute favourites! And how Im jealous of your travels... I've hung up my travel coat for a short while and Im starting to feel the pangs of wanting to head off somewhere again!
