Ice Cream Events

Bringing high quality ice cream to your event

Low-tech photo shoot

on February 10, 2012

When I (Nige) is not selling ice cream I am a commercial photographer and one of my personal and non-commercial interests is pinhole photography. I make cameras out of boxes and tins, some of which are exposed for a minute or two others for months or even years. As the Pinhole Wizard I have over 40 cameras continually photographing numerous locations including National Trust sites across the South West. I thought I might try mixing my jobs and point the pinhole camera at our van. You can see a couple of results below, keen observers familiar with the ice cream business will recognise the dishes I use for processing the pictures in the darkroom (4L ice cream tubs).

The pictures are crude, even when compared to the typical mobile phone camera however, they have a mystery to them and it is great to be able to produce images for our website with nothing more than a tin that would otherwise go into the recycling. Our van and trikes can be hired for film or photo shoots, contact us if you would like more information.
