About TripmanUK

On Etsy since 2014

It started with a gift

In the early 1990's I was given an Olympus Trip 35 by my father-in-law, Bernard.
I used it on holiday to take pictures of the kids on the beach. When I got the photos back from the lab, I was blown away with the quality! All 36 images were exposed beautifully, nice and sharp too, quite a surprise for a simple automatic 35mm camera.

I've used the camera for every holiday since and some of the best travel and street photos I've got came from that camera, as well as photos of my family growing up.

I was surprised to see there was a bit of a cult following for the cameras. This gave me the idea of restoring ones that were no longer loved, adding something to make them look fresh again - leather enhances their look and makes them nice to hold and use. Funnily enough, it was Bernard who helped me to work out how to repair them. We work together on them now and have sold thousands of them to people across the World.
