Photos of Me from Paul Kolinski

Like most pho­tog­ra­phers I don’t have a lot of pictures of myself. For the first time I’m on a planting crew with another camera geek. Paul Kolinski takes a dif­ferent tech­nical approach, shooting with a classic manual Olympus from the age of steel on Ilford 400asa b&w film (which I didn’t even know you could still buy). It’s a reminder that film has it’s own thing going on, and that the mechan­i­cally simpler cameras nec­es­sary for film pho­tog­raphy have been a mature tech­nology for many decades longer than the finicky devices that are con­tem­po­rary digital slrs. Also, Paul is a great portrait shooter. Consequently, for the first time I have actual pictures of me in harness.
