Introduction: Hey, film aficionados! As the proud owner of David Bailey Photography & Training (which’ll soon become Obscura Cameras), I’m just as crazy about the analogue world as you are. It’s a tough gig, tracking down that elusive 35mm colour film in our digital-focused era. In our snug little shop in Ballarat, we’ve made it our life’s work to keep your film needs met, offering a range of 35mm B&W film, colour & B&W 120 format, and a smattering of 35mm colour film. And guess what? We’ve got some super exciting news: Kodak Ultramax is heading our way & will be hitting our shelves any day now!
A Film Enthusiast’s Tale: Keeping the Flame Alive I set up this store with a dream – to make film photography front and center, even as the digital craze surged on. It’s a challenging ride, but every time one of you shares your excitement about our film selection or when we huddle together, chatting about the magic of analogue photography, I know it’s all worth it.
The Adventure for Colour Film: Let’s face it: unearthing colour film feels like an endless expedition. Film production has dipped, and sourcing it has turned into a bit of a struggle. But I’m determined to ensure that our Ballarat store keeps the enchantment of film alive for all you lovely people.
The Buzz: Kodak Ultramax Incoming! Our little shop is abuzz with anticipation as we eagerly await the Kodak Ultramax. Known for its vibrant colours & top-notch quality, it’s become a fan-favourite among our community. We’ll be shouting from the rooftops once it’s in our grasp!
The Future Beckons: Obscura Cameras As we embrace our new identity, Obscura Cameras, I’m thrilled about what lies ahead. We’re taking a leap of faith, renewing our commitment to the film photography community, and I’m stoked to see where this adventure takes us.
Conclusion: I know how tricky it can be to find colour film, but here at David Bailey Photography & Training (soon to be Obscura Cameras), we’re all about backing your analogue dreams.
