Well, let me be the first.

Post by christopher walrath on Mon Dec 22, 2008 4:53 pm

Hi, I'm Chris. I've been shooting film seriously for about ten years now. Been shooting on and off for over twenty. I've rolled through a slew of cameras. Minolta XG-M, Minolta sr-T101, Minolta XD-11, Mamiya M645j, Wirgin 6x6 folder (now a pinhole - modified), 35mm matchbox pinhole cameras (homemade), Zeiss Ikon Contina 35mm RF, Aletta 4x5 view camera (homemade and needs some more work) and finally and presently a Nikon N65 AF 35mm SLR.

I've always shot film. 35mm Fujicolor 400 then 100, Velvia, some BW400CN, TMax 100 (TMX) and TMax 400 (TMY and TMY-2). 120 roll film Kodak TMax 400 (TMY). 4x5 sheets, Arista.edu ISO100.

As to the magazine, I am merely a custodian of a wonderful idea come to fruition. And I hope you all enjoy and benefit from Creative Image Maker.

Oh come now Chris, you're a bit more than 'merely a custodian' - you've been involved in the magazine in one way or another from the very early days!

The 'wonderful idea' that is Creative Image Maker may have come about from an idea I had at the end of 2007, but without lots of support it would never of happened.

As for me, David Vickers, I've been through heaven knows how many cameras - from an old Kodak that came my way after my grandad died (and I still have) through Nikons (film & digital), Yashicas, Mamiyas and a Leica.

I process my own B&W film (never tried C41) and my current darkroom really needs some sorting out!!

Very Happy LOL. Don't mention the dancing... during my course to gain a Certificate in Education we all had to do a mini-teaching session. One of the girls on the course is a dancing teacher, and she had all of us in the dance studio doing some "rep" using "fragmentation".

I wasn't made for dance, but it was a real hoot!!

You know, I always suspected. I make up my own moves. Preempts the invitation to dance in most instances. Happy me.
