For sale

I'm selling my Zenzanon - PS 35mm f/3.5 Fisheye for Bronica.
Really good condition, signs of use, but that's pretty much it. no scratches on lens, both caps.
email me for more info mikko_toi@yahoo.com


Few photos taken with the lens:

Lars Tunbjörk

Beachy Head

I was going through some old photos and found this from last year. I think this was the last photo I took with my Mamiya 7 before the neck strap broke and I dropped the camera on the floor.
I wish I had some money to repair it....

Graflex 4x5

I've had a Graflex Crown Graphic large format camera since last spring, but haven't had a tripod, loupe, cable release or fresh film to shoot with. Finally got some Adox sheet film and shot a few portraits with the camera yesterday.
This is my housemate Mitch, who is a pretty amazing photographer as well, so check out his work.
I kind of like this. It's not perfect, but pretty good for a second try.
I did this set up at home. Fairly easy, used my bed sheet as a backdrop and ambient light coming from a window behind me.
I'm thinking about shooting an entire project with the 4x5, so I'll be uploading more test photos for sure in the weeks to come.

it's alive! my website that is.
Took a while, but it's done and I'm quite happy with it. It's the first and probably the last website I'm doing myself :D
Go and check it out and leave me some feedback. All feedback is welcome of course.
First ten people to send me feedback to my info email with their contact information will get a free print of their choice.

Still working on my website and I thought I'd upload some photos that I won't be using on my website. I think I took this somewhere between Finland and Sweden last summer whilst on the road with homegrown choppers dudes.

For our first uni project Creativity in Context I decided to do a photo essay on the regeneration of Boscombe.
I think I have only scratched the surface with my project so far, so I will continue working on this project whilst I'm in Bournemouth.

As a part of the redevelopment scheme to regenerate and revitalise the area of Boscombe, the council spent £3m to build Europe's first artificial reef in Boscombe.
"The reef will give that area of beach its own identity, raise the profile of Boscombe and attract a large number of visitors on an annual basis." Quote from the Bournemouth council website.
On the other hand only a few streets up from the beach, the story is a bit different.
