    Hi all!

    have been forwarded from another forum, I feel this has a more diverse mix of mediums to share and discuss :smile:

    I'm A Melbourne boy, who is mainly shooting Street and everything in between, with whatever camera I can get my hands on (too many cameras. or not enough?)
    Over the past couple of years I have really fallen right into the land of film, as of now I am developing C41, B&W and enlarging with 35mm

    I would like to get into shooting some Portraits on Large format, and hopefully down the track shooting some Wet Plates. (would be fantazmagorical)

    I have just begun to make enlargements in my makeshift darkroom, and hopefully will soak up as many tips and techniques as i can on this forum.
    would also like to try some Medium Format enlarger, so on the lookout for a 6x6 enlarger :wink:


    Always happy for a photo walk - to any melbourne shooters out there !



    here are a couple of recent pictures of mine, taken with various cameras and film.

    Welcome to apug. You have come to the right place.
    A photo walk is tempting but a little too far from where I live. I hope you find som epeople closer to home.

    A wave and hello from just down the blacktop in now it's sunny/now it's not Geelong. :smile:
    The representative works you put on display are evocative and well timed. The double exposure is particularly interesting.

    Hi from Melbourne too. I like your work. There is a bit of a Trent Parke look and that is a very good thing.

    Which is a good reminder, now we're nearing the end of the year. When is the next APUG outing??
    We've had only two so far this year to memory: Toorongo Falls/Noojee and Cape Schanck. Is /was there another one?
