Kim & Cam, Vancouver Island

35mm film analoge Photography KONO! Originals

Kim & Cam, Vancouver Island

How and when did you two get into photography?

Cam: I've been taking photos non-stop since I was about 14. I burnt through so much 35mm in those days of cheap 1 Hour developing and it got even worse when I started traveling.

Kim: I always loved having a way to document memories. I was given a film camera as a child and would go around taking terrible photos that I still cherish today. When I met Cam, he was so gifted at lining up, lighting and taking photos, and I tried to learn everything I could. He taught me so much.

Zachary Nystrom, NJ, USA

Among which criteria do you choose your models and the striking backgrounds we can find on your photos?

When I first started out I was shooting mostly just with my friends and local bands that I enjoyed. From there I searched the web for creatives with content and attitude that I liked and that evolved into creators contacting me. As for locations, on tour I just made the best out of the landscape around me. I love the outdoors so if I have the opportunity I will always go to nature. I always ask the models if they have a specific spot they want to go to and if not I research the area and pick out the best outdoor spots.

We used the chemicals in the darkroom, and that interest in being in dark areas was always fascinating to me. I also love watching films, and going to other places and states of mind always took place in the dark. You use a lot of different films but your style is always coming through,...

Connor Lundy, London

Please introduce yourself to our readers: My name is Connor Lundy and I am a London native who is currently looking for a job that does not make me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon. I often spend my time boring friends and acquaintances to death with advertising ideas, photography and political discussion.  How and when did you get into photography? Awkwardly enough for my current girlfriend I actually discovered photography whilst researching a camera for a former girlfriend. Originally it was supposed to be a present however I ended up thinking “oh yes… this feels...
