About

Polaroids became an obsession to put it lightly.

Photography truly is a lifelong passion. I grew up shooting film. At 8 I bought my first camera, a Nikon. After 8 more years of clicking I had the pleasure of 2 years of darkroom with 35mm black and white film, unlimited supplies and my first SLR. Following that it has now been over a decade long journey into digital and all things vintage photography, collecting cameras and honing methods.

Over 3 years ago Polaroids became an obsession to put it lightly. Since then many cameras, mostly SX-70s, have been repaired and tested to near new condition. ion9 SX-70 skins are made from hand selected materials that are precisely cut for a snug fit. Each panel is then carefully applied ensuring a perfect replacement.

There is no other medium like film. There is something so powerful about having that picture to hold. The same with shining a light through a new set of negatives and later seeing that photo develop in darkroom tray. Instant film combines all of that right in front of you. Polaroids simply are the best!
