WHO IS RED DRAGON FILM LAB?
Kia Ora! we are five creatives with a shared passion for analogue and a simple mission to create and foster a space for all lovers of film
"The love of photography and the love of old objects made me start this career. I enjoy the process of film development and scanning and hope this will become my job! Help other photographers create photos in the traditional way."
Camera: Nikon Fm2, f90x & mamiya rb67
'Film photography begs each frame to be taken consciously. When I get my images back, I'm experiencing a memory with new eyes. There's that moment of re-discovery that I've been anticipating.'
Camera: Nikon F,65
"I' will continously say I have quite a frantic love for analogue, - but that's probably just my personality seeping through. Although I thoroughly enjoy the scenes of developing and experimenting with shooting film, I've become super intrigued by the mechanics within the camera's itself - the work is so delicate. The analogue realm is so intricate and special - it not only connects us to the present and documents memories but opens us up to the most intimate side of reportage and the connection with other people.
Camera: Nikon F, Minolta 110 Zoom & Canon Autozoom XL 1014
Kia ora, e te whānau! Engaging with analogue allows us to access a slower route of image making, altogether thinking intuitively about the photographs we create and bring into our community.
Camera: Hasselblad 500C, Pentax Spotmatic, Espio Mini
I started when I was 18, but throughout my life, my father had the passion for photography. He taught me so much and helped me discover my love for Portrait Photography - Shooting for that special moment that transcends the subject and the place, where true magic lies
