I began shooting with a Holga in 2005 after discovering the camera on
Flickr. After a brief stint shooting with a dSLR, I was drawn to the
way the Holga images embraced the imperfections of the camera to
create a unique mood. So I ordered a camera online, painted the
inside, covered it in tape and the rest is history.
Today I have three Holgas. My original 120CFN. A Holgamods version
with close focusing and working aperture and a WOCA glass lens
version. The Holgamods camera is my main Holga.
I don’t have a formal background in photography and my day job is
completely unrelated but I have been photographing since the late
1980s. Shooting with a Holga brings me back to the days where the act
of taking the shot is just as interesting as the final image.

Holga images can be seen on Flickr
