Currently, I am shooting with my favourite Nikon FM1, LC-A+ and occasionally on my phone too.

My goal: I believe that to continue leasing new life into film photography, one must not only continue shooting in film but also to try to breakthrough the main stream photography industry which is, admittedly, dominated by digital mediums.

Bring back the beauty to analog photography.
