I have been making my own zines for a few years now and find the whole process very enjoyable especially when you get a finished copy of your work in your hands.
“I don’t take portraits” is my latest offering and is a slightly misleading title as it only features portraits that I have sort of unknowingly shot over the past few years.
What I mean is I never intentionally go to shoot portraits but I have seemed to have accumulated at least one frame from most of the rolls of film I have shot either as a way of testing the film/lens/camera combination or just to start/finish a roll.
Last month I went totally out of my comfort zone and agreed to an interview with Euan over at Biblioscapes … https://biblioscapes.com/ to talk about this new zine.
I don’t usually do this type of thing but Euan made the whole process very relaxed and easy.
Biblioscapes is a great site featuring a wide variety of photographers and styles and I enjoy listening to all of the interviews, I am honoured to be amongst such good work.
Here are the links to my waffling if anyone is interested ..
and the zine itself ..
I had the zine printed by the wonderful Mixam who always do a great job.
Here is a link to the online proof that they generate before it went to print.
Comments on the zine and my waffling all about it will be gratefully received.
Also I still have a handful of copies left so if anyone of you would like one please get in touch either through Twitter .. @timdobbsphoto or email .. firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
I have a few spare zines left from previous and I will be giving one free with each Portrait zine.
