Hi All,

I live in Cape Town, South Africa. Oddly buying a DSLR in 2007 sparked an interest in analogue photography when I realised I still had a Yashica-Mat LM in a cupboard as well as a Zorki-C I had bought in a Bulgarian flea market about 15 years previously.

A quick trip to the local camera repair man and I was the proud owner of two very capable cameras. Since then they have bred like rabbits in my house and while I have my favourites they all get their day out once in a while.

The main shooters at the moment seem to be a Minolta Hi-Matic 11 and a Rolleicord Va

I built a darkroom with mostly donated gear. At the middle of everything is a Simmon-Omega D2.

Some of my efforts are on Flickr:
