To celebrate the epic return of Graham Fry (otherwise known as G) onto the Castle Cameras team, our next instalment of “Getting to know you” is all about him! Enjoy or scroll to the bottom to see his brilliant photos.
What about photography interests you?
Capturing a moment in time, preserving it forever in the frame of a viewfinder. Its like magic! I also like the shiny, shiny!
What do you like to do outside of taking photos?
I like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain
Is there a particular style of photography you like?
I love street photography, although it is hard to do without looking like a creep! Maybe I should leave the trench coat at home?
Does anyone/anything inspire you?
I’m inspired by the likes of Cartier-Bresson, Daido Moriyama and Bruce Gilden. But most of all I’m inspired by Hugh. He is a beautiful man.
What camera equipment do you own?
Err…lots….. Contax T2, Contax T3, Contax 137, Hasselblad XPan ii, Hasselblad S01c, Hasselblad S03cx, Rolleiflex 2.8e, Nikon f, Nikon f2, Leica M9 and lots more.
Has working at Castle Cameras improved or inspired your photography?
Yes, totally, especially during my trip to Finland a couple of years ago.
How do you get to work?
Car, my legs are too messed up to get here any other way!
When and where is your next holiday? Are you taking your camera?
I’m planning on revisiting Italy next year and I will be taking a camera or 8.
Film or digital and why?
Film, film, FILM. Its magic, it captures light and freezes it, for real! No 0’s and 1’s here. No processing either. Its great!
Name one thing you enjoy about your job and one thing you would change?
My job is awesome, I get to talk to people about cameras all day. I would like more time alone with Brians epic camera collection!
