A couple of shots of a scrap metal yard on a Holga adapted to shoot full width 35mm film.
I actually went into the office to ask if I could go a bit more into the yard but was told I could only shoot from the gate as it was too dangerous
This is from a couple of weeks ago when I did a job with photographer Alicia Scott. Ivan and his team at Frenz Hair Salon were great to work with and it was a fun shoot. I even managed to plug Rollei into the lights, via pocket wizards, and snap a couple of shots
See one of the final shots on Alicia’s page HERE
The last lot of images from the weekend of Urbex/Parkour.
The only problem with going out with a group is that you cant be everywhere at once.
Still need to practice a bit more

I finally got around to pulling apart my broken Canon Demi S half frame camera to see if I could get it back up and running. I found a repair manual online for a slightly different model of camera and started dismantling. There was a major difference unfortunatley in how the front cover came off which would have saved a lot of time and trouble but you live and learn.
I got it all back together (with no extra bits left out) with the initial problem fixed but another problem arose which meant I needed to pull it al apart again… Lets just say its a work in progress
Luckily while I was doing this I was also bidding on another one online
Last post from the GCSB protest on last weekend in Wellington.
These ones were taken on a Nikon FG20 which I bought from an Op Shop for $35. The film is also 8 years expired which gives it a bit of flaring and blocking out of the blacks.
I quite liked the effect as its not your usual super sharp, super well exposed documentary photos we are use to seeing.
Posts have been a bit far apart of late and to be perfectly honest I have been out taking a whole heap of images, partly because its winter and cold outside.
I have just invested in a set of studio lights (Bowens Gemini 750s with batteries) and haven’t really had them out of there case since I got them The double garage under the house is being roughly converted to a studio space and eventually I should start setting up some shoots there. I am however excited by the prospect of taking the lights out to some urbex locations to shoot some portraits but really need the weather to be a bit more settled.
I went out for the first time to shoot street yesterday and although I didn’t take any images I’m going to try and get out at least once a week.
Anyway hopefully this means a few more images to come onto the blog.
Here is a shot from a couple of months ago from Fergus as I was just starting to get bits and peices set up…

Well it looks like its been a while since I have posted anything…
I went to the GCSB Protest in Wellington last Saturday along with my trusty Rolleiflex Only just started scanning the shots today and so far this one stands out…
In hindsight it is a bit weird that I went to a protest about being watched and listened in on… Street photographer and all
