Black & White Film Photography

All my favourite black & white film photography
Some 35mm and some 120
Mostly shot on #ilfordfp4+ or #hp5+

Black & white film photography is, by far, my favourite.

Using a Bronica SQ-b medium format camera, Nikon FM & a Nikon F5, I shoot predominantly Ilford black & white films. My absolute top favourite film is Ilford FP4+, followed closely by HP5+ whether shot at box speed or pushed to ISO 1600.

On rare occasions I throw in a roll of Kodak T-Max, but that certainly is rare these days.

Part of the process is developing film. All of this is done in house by myself. Taking over the home laundry space, hours are spent meticulously mixing chemicals and bringing the film to life.

“I would highly recommend Steve to anyone searching for a true professional with an artistic eye to create some of the most beautiful images. I was drawn to Steve's photography long before our session and I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome.”
“Steve had both his own visions of the shoot and worked with my ideas which resulted in a comfortable and natural session. The time flew by and before I knew it there were all these great photos showing faces and looks that I make all the time but have never really seen for myself. Very illuminating!!”
interested in working with us?
