Searching for UK Artists working with Film, creating inspirational series in contemporary styles, Caitlin Chescoe's work stood out to me. When you visit her website you're greeted with an image of a young, freckle faced boy with blonde hair and blue eyes wearing a white dust suit, standing against a concrete background. Immediately I knew I'd found someone I wanted to feature on the site, I could tell she understood the power of photography and could portray so much in just o
Featured Artist: Philip Ashman Location: Blackpool, UK I've known Phil for perhaps a year now and there isn't much he doesn't know about photography.

One thing we love is finding unloved/unwanted film cameras and putting them to good use! If you've never heard about it, check out the free websites like freecycle, search for the groups in your area and post the occasional wanted ad kindly asking for any old cameras, you'll be surprised what you find out there that people have gathering dust in their wardrobes or up in the attic!

Shooting film is like driving an old mini. There's faster, more reliable options out there but lets face it, it's not as cool and everyone secretly wishes they had one.
