Many of my portfolio images were made with classic cameras fifty years old or older. As a result of careful buying, patience, and a willingness to take on cameras that need a bit of TLC, I’ve been able to acquire interesting high quality equipment inexpensively. Brands include Zeiss Ikon, Minolta, Voigtländer, Zenit, Rolleiflex, Konica, Exakta, and Contax.
I often use medium format because of its outstanding image quality, and I’m especially fond of my Rolleiflex 2.8C twin lens. But I also photograph with a Hasselblad SLR because of its excellent Carl Zeiss interchangeable lenses. 35mm still features strongly in my workflow, as the versatility, economy and portability of the format are often important.
Black and white images are made on Fujifilm Acros 100, or various ILFORD films, (Eg. Pan F Plus, FP4 Plus and Delta 100). These are selected for their outstanding sharpness, fine grain and tonality. I develop all my own black and white films and films for a number of other Tasmanian photographers. My favourite films for colour imaging are Fuji Velvia 50, Provia 100F, PRO 160, PRO 400H and Kodak Ultramax 400.
