Professionally I’ve worked as a video editor for that last 3 years, but I’ve always been an avid analogue photography enthusiast and writer. In addition to being the senior writer & editor-in-chief for Aperture Dundee, I also run a YouTube channel under the same name. Film photography has more or less been a part of my life since the beginning, however, I only began to take a serious interest in it as a teenager. In the years since I started I’ve spent countless hours making images, developing film & scanning negatives. I’ve pretty much permanently got a camera in hand, most often loaded with a roll of 35mm black and white film (Retro 80S is one of my favourites). I live in rural Alberta, Canada, one of the most beautiful places on planet earth, with my family and a bunch of animals.
