About

For the past few years, I’ve carried a small film camera with me. Often, I walk downtown to and from work, running errands or just to get out of the house. I had no preconceived ideas about it, when it started.

Over time, I started noticing all these odd moments were being captured, and I came to look at this distinct place in a much different way.
I often call this town “Planet Brandon” and this is my way to show that, and to remember.

Basic, simple street photography – it’s what happens when anyone just stops and looks around them.

    I love the candid photography style. I would love to feature some of your photographs on my website, which is to help Chinese international students acculturate to Vancouver while going to school here.

    Take a look and let me know.
    Thanks!

    Just wondering what that small film camera is, specifically….

    Hi Mike
    I started out with a Nikon FM2 (which I still use when the weather turns really cold) but for the past few years have used a Leica M6. I’m really into the small and very unobtrusive nature of a rangefinder.
    It really is true, from my observation, that a small quiet camera has a very noticeable effect on how people interact with you, when doing street photography.

    Wow! Absolutly marvelous what you have done here. It’s a never ending story. So many people, so many characters and someone who is able to capture it. I’m impressed.

      Thanks very much. I like the idea of an ongoing story – I never started it with a traditional start-middle-end narrative in mind, and it seems to make sense to just keep on flowing.
