Analogue film die-hard collective, The Melbourne Silver Mine has been holding an annual intra-member film based portrait shooting event each year for a few years now. Last winter I hosted a gaggle of them for a meetup in Melbourne’s Campbell Arcade with the view of shooting one another.
It was a rather successful day which took us from Campbell Arcade, through Port Phillip Arcade, into the crusty and asbestosisly ambiguous Nicholas Building before coming to rest with ales at Young & Jackson.
We each took our turns being image subject and image maker.
Many sought to capture my magnificence.
Size matters to Mr Marc Morel.

Kat White was in town, Lan’s a fan.
All of my photos are taken with a Canon EOS5, 50mm 1.4 shot on Legacy Pro 400 (Thanks to Lea for developing the film).
The following are some of the pics by others taken at this meet.
If you are Melbourne based, into your analogue photography but not heard of the Melbourne Silver Mine, where have you been hiding?
