Long live film – traditional analogue print and process

Kathakali Actor, Fort Kochi, India

Professional creative analogue photography – Using Leica R8’s, HP5, Warm tone hand prints … we can shoot process and print beautiful bespoke images on film; with the finest lenses, chemicals and papers to create something unique and special.

For over 150 years, photography has been a chemical process. Images are captured on photographic film. This is made up of layers of light-sensitive silver halide emulsion coated on a flexible base. Film is exposed to light in a camera. This creates a latent image, which is made visible by immersion in a solution of chemicals called a ‘developer’. Prints are made by projecting the image from the film on sensitised paper and processing the material in a series of chemical baths. Much of the processing of both film and paper must take place in darkened rooms to avoid extraneous light reaching the sensitised emulsions.
