Iceland_JokulsarlonSunset2

All images by Bimal Ramdoyal. Used with permission.

“I bought my first film camera and things took a different turn then.” says Bimal Ramdoyal; one of the photographers who embraces the analogue world of picture taking. “I fell in love with film.” Bimal started out with his Canon EOS- T1i and still shoots digital for his ‘safe’ shots, but the work he is known for is his film work. Amongst this body of images, we’ve fallen for Bimal’s images of Iceland shot on Velvia–which is as stunning as anything digital can produce.

We asked Bimal some questions about how he got into photography, what draws him to film, why he chooses velvia and of-course – which gear he is using to produce these incredible images.

Street photography is pretty much as simple as going out and shooting photos of people in public–but there are the street photographers that do it better than everyone else and then there are those who do a lot of marketing. Indeed, there are terrible photographers with lots of gigs and sales and conversely there are photographers with great work and no gigs or sales. But the world of the Street photographer is different.

It gets even tougher when it comes to street photography for the reasons that your income will mostly rely on licensing and print sales from galleries. So how do you ensure you’ve got the work that counts? Here’s how!
