Starting a new project that combines two of my favorite things, hunting down vintage treasures and photography. I love thrifting, flee markets, estates sales, garage sailing and picking, my wife loves it too and so does our daughter, we buy and sell vintage items often.
Collectively we enjoy mid-century modern furniture and anything with a cool graphic or text. We each have our own side collections, for Abby, our daughter, it is cow gravy boats, my wife wooden cabinets and shelves, and for me it is cameras. However, I am a fickle camera collector I love the hunt but keeping the cams is not something I need to do. Once that first roll goes through a recent vintage find my thoughts drift once again to the hunt for the next camera.
So I will be hunting down my all time favorite cameras, shooting a roll of film through each, with subject matter well suited to the camera, posting the images to Instagram and then selling the cameras on eBay to the highest bidder. I am going to start with an affordable classic, 35mm cameras.
As I teach the history of photography and have extensive experience buying and selling used gear expect a few tidbits of history and camera trivia along the way, let the hunt begin!!
