Jake Bright the Polaroid Whisperer

Jake Bright the Polaroid Whisperer

May 16, 2021

In episode 46 I interview a man that goes by many names... Jake Threepwood, The Instant Camera Guy, and even... the Polaroid Whisperer!

I am of course talking about Jake Bright, a very talented Polaroid SX-70 repairer based in Melbourne, Australia. We talk about pack film camera modifications, how Jake pivoted his business when pack film was discontinued, what can go wrong with SX-70s, are Instax cameras worth repairing, the new Polaroid Go format, and what other vintage items Jake restores. 

Get in contact with Jake via his website or Facebook, and don't forget to tell him that Matt Loves Cameras sent you!

I Dream Of Cameras Jumps the Shark

I Dream Of Cameras Jumps the Shark

May 4, 2021

Jeff Greenstein and Gabe Sachs from film photography podcast "I Dream Of Cameras" Jump the Shark and appear on Matt Loves Cameras! 

Over 10 rounds we dream of cameras we've never owned in 10 different categories: 

  1. Point and shoot
  2. SLR
  3. TLR
  4. Rangefinder
  5. Toy camera
  6. Half frame
  7. Obscure format 
  8. Instant camera
  9. Specialty (pinhole / pano / stereo)
  10. Wild card camera 

But wait! There's a twist to each round, who will come out on top? 

Also keep listening for random questions about Australia, movies and vintage collectibles. I also put the guys through a gruelling classic American TV quiz, and an even more gruelling set of questions from my daughter Elodie!

LomoChrome Purple review

LomoChrome Purple review

February 25, 2021

💜 LomoChrome Purple is a film that I have fallen in love with over the last year 💜

If you’ve never tried it, I hope that this podcast and the sample images will inspire you to pick up a roll or five.

In this review I give a brief historical overview of LomoChrome Purple and the film that inspired it, details on the colour shifts you can expect, the variable ISO nature of the film, I describe a dozen images I've shot with Purple taken on four different cameras, and lots more!  

Inspired? Take part in my LomoChrome Purple competition! Entering is easy: shoot a roll of Purple between 1 February 2021 and 30 April 2021, then send me the best four images! The aim of the competition is to produce a film photography community zine by mid 2021.

💜💜💜💜💜💜

You are the magic: what an advertising legend can teach photographers

You are the magic: what an advertising legend can teach photographers

November 22, 2020

A few years ago on holidays I read a little gem of a book by advertising legend Paul Arden “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.”

Arden was a creative director at London advertising agency Saatchi and Saatchi, and was responsible for some of the most famous British advertising campaigns of all time.

I read this little book about once a year, it’s funny, insightful, and full of snippets of advice and inspiration for creative people.

Much of the advice in the book is aimed at copy writers and people working in ad agencies, but the book also contains many pearls of wisdom for all creatives from all walks of life.

In this episode, I've taken nine quotes from the book and interpreted them in a way that you can apply to your photography.

Lomography Sprocket Rocket!

October 24, 2020

2010 was not a great year for film photography, but among all the doom and gloom, one shining light stood proud like a lighthouse on the horizon: Lomography Society International.

When so many other camera manufacturers were discontinuing products or leaving the industry altogether, Lomography launched a brand new camera: the Sprocket Rocket!

I've shot three rolls of film through this plastic beauty... but is it any good? Keep listening and find out!
