HolgaDirect Interview with Matt Warrell

When did you first form an interest in photography and what caused you to invest time and energy in improving your technique?

I first took an interest in photography back in 2001, but I didn’t get my first Digital SLR for 10 years after that. Prices seemed too high for what I was earning at the time, and Holgas weren’t readily available like they are now. So photography was only available to me in the format of a digital SLR, and $14 an hour doesn’t afford you something like that. When I was living in Canada my roommate pawed over his film and recent shots and I knew I had to make it a mission to finally get a camera. Continue Reading…

Quick Chat with Will Freeman of Pixelist

Pixelist - Turn Your Instagram into a PaintingQ: So tell us about your startup, Will.

A: Pixelist is simple: we do hand-made oil paintings of Instagrams (and other photos). These are photorealist paintings which look quite similar to the original photo but have a depth and weight that can only come with an oil painting. Take a look at our two-minute video and you’ll understand exactly what we do.

Right now we’re running a crowdfunding campaign for the first 1,000 orders, but soon enough we’ll have our full site up where you can log onto instagram, pick a photo and check out in no time!

Interview with Holga Photographer John Bozinov

When did you first form an interest in photography and what caused you to invest time and energy in improving your technique?

About 5 years ago, my sister had been playing around with an old Diana and she introduced me to medium format film photography. I think from the start I had an innate attraction to photography, or perhaps obsession is a better word. Learning and reading about photographic theory has never been a chore, but rather an urge for me. Putting that into practice by going out and shooting is my greatest pleasure- it’s still a hobby that I very much enjoy. Continue Reading…
