In this episode I take a look at the Pentax S1. Made in 1960 this simple but high quality camera was designed as a budget version of the range topping Pentax S3. It’s features are not actually that limited though and it has a few secrets up it’s sleeve! It is part of a proud lineage of Asahi cameras starting with the Asahi Pentax of 1957 and continuing through until the Spotmatics of the 1970’s.
I fell in love with photography as a kid. My dad had an OM-1 which fascinated me from as young as I can remember. I've always had cameras and taken pictures all my life. I couldn't imagine not doing so. My professional life only really started about 3 years ago as an in-house product and commercial photographer for a company selling electric bicycles here in the UK. I have recently branched out on my own and now shoot my first love which is music as a full time job.
Most of my life revolves around the music industry these days. I am a music photographer and I am in a band called the Hope Brothers. I shoot a lot of other commercial work too and I love it all.
My other big passion is street photography. I have an exhibition this summer called Mill Road Faces in Cambridge, UK where I am from, and where the photos were taken. It is a long term photo story about an area that has a very special vibe to it and some very special people.
