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, […]

Asanuma Lens

“Ninety-nine percent of the lenses are better than 100% of photographers.” – Scott Bourne My friend Lynn Taylor from the Ogden Camera Club gave me this Minolta MD mount lens a few years ago. It’s in great condition, was still in the box with all the packaging materials. Has no scratches, no fungus, and no […]

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. […]

Kodak Master View

Back in November 2019, my friend Maurice offered up a Kodak Master View monorail camera. Yes, it’s taken me this long to get around to using it. Along with the free camera, Maurice sold me a Kodak Commercial Ektar, 8 ½ inch, f/6.3, 215mm lens. The lens was manufactured by Ilex Optical and was designed […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rollei 35 (1966 – 1974)

I was contacted last May by someone looking to donate a camera. A reader named Sarah had acquired her grandfather’s Rollei 35 and wanted to make sure it would go to someone that would use it. After a few back-and-forth emails, Sarah sent the camera from North Dakota. I asked Sarah to tell me a […]

Abandoned 280ZX

A few miles away from my house an abandoned Datsun 280ZX has been sitting in a private parking lot for several years. Each time I drove past it, I thought how I should stop and capture some images of the car as it slowly became surrounded by weeds and the exterior became more weathered with […]
