Elephant roadside breakdown

Personal update: websites and new camera collection

Seeing it’s been a while since my last personal update, it was about time I shared some news.

I am currently still working for Linus Carr in Warwick and everything is going well. There is a website planned for his art business which both I, and a fellow named James will be working on. Thank goodness he will be using WordPress – I am getting quite familiar with all the ins and outs of this system. My main job will be providing the image content and there will be a lot of it!

On a personal project/ vintage photo front, with all thanks going to my parents, I am now the proud owner of a Rolleiflex, Rolleicord and accessory collection (see image). The father of an old high school friend of mine who’s wedding I photographed, had this lying about in his attic and offered it to me for a great price. Initially I declined as I couldn’t justify the expense at this time (we had just bought a car) but my mum and dad decided they would get it for me. And I couldn’t be more grateful! My plans for today are to test out both cameras with a comparison to the Microflex I already own and then slowly but surely test all filters, lenses and backplates. I can’t wait to get started!!
