Why shoot film? Why not shoot digital like the rest of the world? In these cases, it doesnâ€™t matter if itâ€™s film or digital… their work is amazing.
Jonathan Canlas is the God-Father of film these days. He shoots 100% film 100% of the time. Iâ€™m not sure if he even knows what a memory card is. It doesnâ€™t matter though, because Jonâ€™s work speaks for itself. His work is honest and direct. No props needed. Jon teaches the Film is Not Dead Workshop which I can highly recommend. Check out his work at http://jonathancanlasphotography.com.
Joseâ€™s work is simply out-of-this-world. Sometimes I look at his images and think to myself, â€œREALLY?!â€ I could only dream about having that sort of talent. Jose teaches a photography workshop that I hear is the real deal. Check out Joseâ€™s work at http://josevillaphoto.com.
Jen has a very unique style. Bright and vibrant is what I would say to describer her photographs. Jen also offers a film workshop. Check out Jenâ€™s work atÂ http://jenhuangphotography.com.
Elizabeth Messina is I think one of the best at capturing the details and emotions of the weddings that she shoots. Her work isnâ€™t over-thought. Itâ€™s easy to look at and â€œgetâ€ right away. Itâ€™s candid, sometimes conceptual, but always great. Find her work at http://elizabethmessina.com.
Karen is great at capturing details. Her portraits are immaculate. Her colors are amazing, thatâ€™s why her work as a wedding photographer has also paid off in the food photography world as well, and vice versa. Check her work out at http://www.karenwise.com/
Samm is based in Melbourne, Australia one of the many great photographers coming from down under. Her B+W work is amazing. She makes great use of light in every circumstance. Check her out at http://www.sammblake.com/
Speaking of photographers from Australia, Jonas is another who I think is top 10 every year. Jonasâ€™ work is real. He doesnâ€™t try and overshoot, or over-edit. The photographs he takes are natural and candid. No need for fancy rigs/lights, just real. Check him out at http://jonaspeterson.com/
Fer is based in Mexico, and is a hybrid shooter. He shoots a lot of film, but also a lot of digital. His camera(s) of choice is a Leica, and so his work has a real documentary feel. He has some really great B+W work. Check him out at http://ferjuaristi.com/
Dianaâ€™s work is incredible. She shoots great details and has a good eye for getting the moment. She describes it as â€œhip and honestâ€. I couldnâ€™t agree more. Visit her site at http://yanphoto.com/
There are scores more film-shooting photographers out there that I know and love, but I wanted to just give a little breakdown of my favorites.
I too shoot a lot of film and love the process of it. I hope you find some inspiration through any one of these recommended photographers.
Have a great day!
