It is no secret that I am a bit of a camera junkie. Ever since I purchased my first SLR (film!) back when I was sixteen years old, I have been hooked on buying cameras. I even went to university to study photography – a skill that has come in handy ten-fold over the years. I love film, I love digital – I love toy cameras and Polaroids – I even love the camera on my phone. Constantly capturing images (even more so now with my little munchkin) I have been obsessed with creating images for a very long time.
Lucky for me (and you!) May is photography month at London Drugs and on June 4th and 5th there is a big #LDFotoCon event happening right here in Calgary! London Drugs is the best place to purchase the latest digital camera equipment – and whom better to learn from than the experts. Did you know that many of their Camera and Photolab staff are actually photographers themselves?
#LDFotoCon brings together expert photographers and reps from the top camera manufacturers to create a unique experience for customers. Learn more about your camera, gain valuable photographic experience and take advantage of the amazing advice available to you. Make sure you register now to claim your spot and enjoy two fantastic days of nerding out on cameras and gear. I know I will be heading down as I have my eye on the SONY A6000. I have been looking for a new camera to replace my aging DSLR and it looks like the SONY models are where it is at! Can’t wait to learn more and hopefully pick up a new camera!
June 4: Heritage Plaza, 8330 MacLeod Trail SE
June 5: First Calgary SE, 4701-130th Avenue SE
In a quick effort to get back into film photography, I purchased a disposable camera from London Drugs and took it out with me on a few adventures. The results (the photos in this post) I love – the images are unedited and somehow perfect all at the same time. All I can say is that I am addicted again. London Drugs is one of the few places that still processes film – my roll was ready and scanned onto a disk in less than 24 hours. Their photolab is fantastic so definitely check it out if you are looking to get back into film photography or get some prints made. The results are always wonderful and surprising!
