After 20 very well received shows since we began this podcast last year, for some time we considered retiring from the fame, stardom and wealth that this has brought us. I convinced Simon that we should carry on at least through 2020 as there are many more brilliant guests we can have on the show.

So we start 2020 with an industry big hitter Max Grew from Intrepid Camera. Since the successful Kickstarter in 2014 Max and his growing team have shipped over 5,000 brand new cameras – it’s a statistic we find staggering and really encouraging in this hi tech world.

So thanks to Max for taking the time to bring us up to date with all that’s happening with you – exciting times ahead.



Things we chatted about on the show


Max uses the Brighton Community Darkroom to print his work – it looks to be a brilliant resource if you are in the area – check out their website


Andrew mentioned DeVere as they are also in Brighton – listen to episode 19 or head over to their website for enlargers, lenses and other spares – or just some sound advice from John Boyce


Andrew referenced Ansel Adam’s book “The Camera” as a superb reference for all things Large Format which he bought back in the 1980s it is still in print and reasonably priced


If you live anywhere near Stoke On Trent then why not get in touch with Simon and coma along to the 6 Towns Darkroom on a Tuesday evening

  • You know how to find him


Andrew mentioned the Stearman Press 8x10 daylight developing tank which appears in the Firstcall Photogaphic Catalogue – this is likely to be imported by Morco Photographic and both suppliers are really worth checking out


Excitement is building at the prospect of the imminent UK availability of Pictoriographica dry plates – we think at Analogue Wonderland


and of course the successful KickStarter to deliver brand new dry plate holders – the ChromaGraphica will be available soon
