Bombay Shooters started life in January 2003 with the sole purpose of being a weblog about photography. PhotographyBLOG is run by professional photographer Mark Goldstein and the site has several key aims:
- to review the latest digital cameras, printers, scanners, software and books
- to report all the photography news, both film and digital, both global and UK-based
- to offer opinion on that news, and to allow you to contribute your own comments and opinion
- to provide a friendly meeting place for photographers of all abilities
one of the biggest digital photography websites, which offers informative new product reviews and original in-depth news from around the world. He’s also a regular contributor to the popular UK magazines Digital Photographer and Digital Camera Essentials. More personal photo projects include his Portfolio site and Everydayeye, an attempt to post a photo every day.
An early introduction to photography from his father, who often turned the kitchen of their Budapest apartment into a darkroom to develop prints from his black-and-white shots taken on Fortepan negatives. The disease was contagious, and he soon found himself snapping away at everything he saw through the finder of his little Smena Symbol. As the years went by. he got his hands on more and more 35mm and medium-format film cameras, until he decided to treat himself to a digicam in 2002. Ever since then, he has been being dragged deeper and deeper into the swampy realm of digital photography. His addiction hasn’t been helped by his recent marriage to photojournalist Viktória Hanis, with whom he is embarking on more photographic adventures than ever before.
