Stefan Hellberg | Switzerland Wedding Photographer - Amazing shot Jonas. Love the calmness of the picture. It is showing so few things but it is so calm that you can look at it forever. Maybe that doesn’t make sense but it is true…

Tori Lubbers - Hi Jonas, I was wondering if you would ever be posting a full wedding of Lelian & Sarra? This photo is probably my favourite of yours ever, it’s torturous to see only the one! I’m also absolutely in love with her dress! I know it’s a girly thing to ask, but do you know who the designer is? Amazing work as always!

Fotograf Gliwice - Simply, simply gorgeous!

Lucie Zeka - great location

Film Travels III

For the last three years I have been on the road from June to August. I’ve met some amazing people and shot some fantastic weddings. On my free time I still love to take photos, but for my personal work I choose to capture everything on film instead of digital. There’s something about film that still holds my heart in a tight grip. The images have another soul  and breathes of imperfection and life. And every time I shoot film, I secretly wish that I could shoot more of it for the work I do. Here are just a few frames from Lipari in Italy and my home away from home – Bali. Shot with a Canon EOS 3 on Fuji 400H with a number of prime lenses.

August 13, 2012 - 10:02 am

August 13, 2012 - 10:43 am

Oli - Thats the business, man. The more I see shooters I follow shooting film the more I notice the massive difference between that and digital. And the more a badass case of GAS rears it’s head.

August 13, 2012 - 10:48 am

Nick Lance - I never realised before but you’re right, film definitely has a special look. Its nostalgic and suits vacation photography perfectly!

August 13, 2012 - 11:26 am

Nuno Ferreira - Beautiful images, Jonas! There’s something about film that digital can’t have. I promised myself that I would get a film camera this year and I’ll try to capture my daughter life, like my father did when I was very young. Thank you for the inspiration, my friend!

August 13, 2012 - 11:35 am

August 17, 2012 - 8:45 pm

Alexander Leaman - Hey Jonas, Love this set of pics – there’s a lot of fun going on there. The stuff of instant nostalgia.
The EOS 3 was my last film camera before moving over to digital (10 years ago?) and I remember wondering why my new amazing 6mp digital SLR wasn’t able to produce the same quality! The semi-pro EOS couldn’t be anywhere as good as the new digital Nikon, right?!!
I’m still looking for a mint EOS 3 today…

August 18, 2012 - 4:51 am

sami d - ah, these images. and being paired with sigur ros, makes them even more magical.

August 20, 2012 - 10:11 am

Eric Uys - I remember I had a Canon EOS 3 back in the day for like a month, it was expensive and I felt so guilty for paying so much for a camera back then I could not bear it and sold the camera again within a month.. this was ages before digital came along and re wrote the book on what cameras should cost! now I sit with a Contax 645, Nikon F100 and a gorgeous Canon EOS 50 and no film!!

August 21, 2012 - 12:03 am

simon - Absolutely stunning, love the colours. The first shot of the yacht is my favourite.

August 21, 2012 - 12:56 am

Shauna Ploeger - Love all these. Film is amazing. Beautiful!

August 21, 2012 - 6:50 am

Priti Shikotra - Ah…I was scrolling down and saw something that was so familiar…Ubud…Bali..Man I miss travelling <3

August 21, 2012 - 5:25 pm

Tenielle - Just lovely Jonas. But I think your little ones stole the show :)

August 22, 2012 - 2:37 pm

Julian Beattie - Awesome images. Jealous of the travels man!

August 24, 2012 - 12:18 am

Stefan Hellberg | Switzerland Wedding Photographer - nice, makes me want to get back in to film photography. Thanks for the inspiration. You make a difference in the world, that’s awesome.

August 24, 2012 - 4:00 am

Catherine Abegg - Jonas! Love these…! xo.

August 24, 2012 - 5:35 am

Lisa O'Dwyer - I’ve been using film too for all of my personal work since this past May. I love the look it gives me and I think the quality and the feeling from it are so important for documenting your own family. There’s no reason why you can’t be a 100% film shooter or at least 90%? Go for it! I’m making the switch and feel totally liberated and feel like I’m coming home :)

August 25, 2012 - 11:23 pm

Angie Papalas - Crazy, crazy beautiful brilliance. Putting film in my EOS3 right now.

August 26, 2012 - 11:08 pm

Annette Wilson - DANG!

August 28, 2012 - 5:05 am

Matt - I remember the EOS 3 very well… for all the practicalities of digital cameras, I still miss the depth and, as you eloquently put it, the ‘imperfections’ of film…. a great set of images as well Jonas :)

September 7, 2012 - 4:12 pm

starrman - Seriously, those boys of yours!

September 18, 2012 - 9:00 pm
