About Peter de Graaff
In his own words:
My first camera was an Olympus Trip 35 which I bought after saving my pocket money. It was stolen in the early 90s, after going around the world and Australia several times. It was a lost friend. I have always loved photography, cameras, and film.
I currently own around 40 cameras, most of which I use… …some more often than others. This includes rangefinders, folders, box, twins lens reflex, single lens reflex cameras and instant. I am particularly fond of Olympus cameras, including a reacquired Trip 35 bought for $12 and a cherished Olympus Chrome Six RIIB. During 2012 I have been experimenting with film and cameras shooting around 170 rolls. My interests include landscape photography, redscale, infrared, instant, 35mm, sizes 127 & 120, and in 2013 have commenced using a Toyo-View 45CF large format field camera. When I travel overseas it is often with no less than 5 cameras including a TLR or folding camera.
I live on the NSW south coast near Shellharbour, around 120 kilometres from Sydney, Australia.
