Olympus OM-2N

I think I own enough Olympus film cameras to officially call myself an Oly-Fanboy. If you look though many of my photos on Instagram, there’s no question that the OM-1N is one of my favorite cameras. It went with me for 3 weeks to Europe, and I recently used it on a 2-week Route 66 […]

Saturday Adventures

One thing I’ve learned from my fellow film photography nerds Jim Grey and Alex Luyckx is there’s always something local you can photograph. My wife likes to call them our Saturday Adventures. We’ll often pick a city or place we’ve never been in Utah and spend a Saturday there. The following pictures were taken along […]

PT & More 6×6

During my recovery from shoulder surgery, I’ve been going to weekly physical therapy. I joke that I’m paying other people to torture me, but I am seeing the benefits from the exercises and stretching. For me, the best part about going to the local medical clinic is seeing the beautiful photography from two guys that […]

The End of 2021

During the last half of 2021, I’ve been largely absent from my site. It started in mid-July while riding my mountain bike and I fell. While I’d prefer to embellish a story about going over the handlebars while descending a challenging mountainside, the truth is less than exciting. While riding along a flat, paved trail, […]

Olympus Stylus Epic DLX (1997)

My son has become a master at thrifting. When looking for vintage clothing, he knows exactly what to look for. On occasion, he will find a camera and send me a text and ask if it’s worth investigating. Back in May, he came across a stack of Olympus gear at one of his favorite stores. […]

Ice Castles on Film

Back in February, my wife and I decided to visit the Midway Ice Castles on the last day before they closed for the season. I took two cameras and used three different films. The main camera was my Yashica Mat-124 G loaded with Ultrafine Extreme 100 and then Fuji Acros 100II. My second camera was […]

Olympus OM10 (1979)

The Olympus OM10 is my official COVID Camera because it’s the only camera purchase I made during the 2020 lockdown. And because of COVID, it took me longer than normal to finish a roll of film in the OM10. After using the OM1 for the past few years, I decided to take a jump upward […]

Lomography Berlin Kino 400

One of the coolest things about the online film community is the generosity of film photographers. Last year I emailed Natalie Smart, a Brighton UK film photographer after reading one of her blog posts. Seeing that she had just purchased a Hasselblad 500 C/M, I had several original Hasselblad brochures, and some other film items […]

Canon EOS 10S (1990)

Last May, Scott Smith was at the Utah Film Photography Worldwide Headquarters (my house) to develop some 4×5 sheets he’d shot with his newly acquired Graflex. We used a tank that would hold ten sheets and required over a half gallon of chemistry. I’m not doing that again. I’ll stick with 4 sheets in the […]

Leica M3 (1959) – Part 2

While using the borrowed 50mm 5cm Summicron-M f/2.0 (Rigid/2nd version) (1956), I decided that I really needed to purchase my own lens. Having just spent what I think is a considerable amount on the M3 body, I wanted to limit my lens purchase to something more affordable. Searching for an M-Mount lens on eBay led […]
