Oleg on why he shoots film:

My journey began in Lviv, Ukraine when I was 16 and just started working at a photo lab, where met the film. Like plastic, color and depth, which creates only the film. This is very special choice for me. I see film photography as a game in a casino. You can win big or lose it all. I press the shutter release button and then I have to wait to find out the results when the film is processed. The game doesn’t end there. I spend a really long time waiting. Only after scanning and post processing I can see the end result. It’s a very cool feeling, addictive like a drug.”

Soft, Medium Format Portraits In Nature By: Bobby Lee

Bobby on his portrait series and what photography means to him:

"These images are part of an ongoing series of portraits in nature. I started out taking mostly landscape and nature pictures as I went out on hikes exploring and watching sunsets during college about 11 years ago. Over the last few years I also started taking more portraits in nature. The common theme in all my pictures is a certain contemplative mood and a relationship with the landscape.

My photography came out of a desire to record what I saw and felt on my walks in nature. It started during a time of a lot of introspection and soul searching, and photography was both a way to remember my thoughts and experiences, and a process that helped drive my exploration of the landscape and the world around me. Being in nature brings me a sense of perspective, grounded-ness, and calm that I could bring back into my daily life with these pictures.”
