Leica Blog + Film Cameras
Interested in film cameras or specifically Leica? Perhaps you are looking for product reviews or just a source of photography inspiration.
“Love teaching photography so blogging and now YouTube! helps me to do so”.
MrLeica.com is a free and fast growing resource for cameras, lenses and film comparisons. With over 300 published articles this site caters to everyone.
“I enjoy using old film cameras but I do my research before buying. Here I share the answers to the questions I had to save you searching the internet”.
Why is MrLeica.com different to other camera review sites?
“My camera reviews include many comparisons to similar cameras and are based on up to 10 years of hands on experiences using the equipment”.
MrLeica.com started in March 2013 after Flickr followers asked for my thoughts
Founder / Story
I’m a self taught photographer with around 10 years experience of photographing portraits, models and weddings. After my first 3 years I was teaching photography to fellow professionals in the UK and overseas and after 4 years I bought my first Leica camera. As a child my Grandfather inspired me to draw and taught me to paint with watercolours. As a teenager I taught myself very fine detail acrylic painting but went on to study science (and later finance) rather than the arts.
Photography came to me later after an ex girlfriend kindly bought me a camera one Christmas. I was immediately hooked and 3 months later a bought a better camera and then another. My inquisitive data driven mindset and tendancy to document things inspired me to start this blog as a personal project. When reading about photography and researching new cameras I find it is the perfect place to record everything I learn and I can share it with others.
Mr Leica Photographer Blog
Coventry UK studio based portrait and wedding photographer using digital Leica cameras and a wide range of film cameras. Analogue cameras include 35mm, medium format and large format and film developing is done in house. Cameras, lenses and films are tested during model photography photo shoots both in the UK and overseas. Blog reviews include a combination of technical detail, example images and side by side comparisons.
Before starting MrLeica.com I used to write technical articles for UK photography magazines. As I continue to collect and test cameras and photography equipment I now share the information here. I hope you find the content as enjoyable to read as it is to document.
