I have written the book I wish I had access to when I started photographing with film. I’m a little obsessed with the look that film photographs gives which was the reason that made me transition to becoming a hybrid photographer. The timeless feeling, amazing colors (the skin tones!) and the work process are very special when shooting with film. When you get back your first scans from the lab, you will understand what I mean. I hope you will feel a euphoria just as I did and still do. There is something special about film and analog cameras and the working methods. Let us together keep this amazing art form alive.

Once you go through the payment a separate email will be sent with the link to download the book as a pdf within 3 days and at one occasion. I ask you to please respect my work as an artist and don’t share the pdf with others.
