Photographer Matt Kuhn shows us what you can do with an old camera in The Art Station’s latest exhibit, Old Cameras New Tricks.

The show revolves around beautiful photographs taken with older, difficult, and character filled cameras. Drawing inspiration from his grandfather’s old 6 x 9 camera, Matt gets creative with good old-fashioned film. He’s able to focus on the process of photography, rather than the instant gratification in the digital world of seeing the end result immediately.

Matt came to Fernie from Prince George 10 years ago for the skiing and has never looked back. He has spent the past few years working as a professional photographer shooting weddings, portraits, and skiing in the winter at Island Lake. These experiences, along with his time in photography school, have given him a solid foundation on the technical aspects of digital photography.

His current body of work allows Matt to get back to basics and explore his passion for manual film-based photography.

Join Matt at the opening reception of Old Cameras New Tricks tonight at The Arts Station from 7 to 9 p.m.
