I’ve been obsessed with taking pictures all my life. Family pets, toys, cousins unfortunate enough to be spending the summer holidays with me – nothing and no one was safe from my little film camera back in the 80s and 90s.

Badly exposed pictures of school friends, teeny tiny pixellated images from my very first digital camera back in 2003, dubious photos on my early blog posts at university in the early noughties… through to now, with thousands upon thousands of images on my phone and my computer and my hard drives. They’re not all of my cats…!

I try to print as many as I can, but no matter how full my storage gets, I can’t stop taking pictures.

These days I shoot digital, of course, but I still have a soft spot (as many photographers do) for film – and for the beautiful vintage cameras of old. I love my Canon, but she doesn’t have the same iconic looks as the Polaroid or the Brownie…

Can you spot which of the cameras up there isn’t actually a camera, but a notebook?

From the desk of this camera (and stationery!) addict comes the I Love Cameras collection, and the Camera Duo – stationery presents for the camera addict in your life! (Everyone knows one – some of us keep it better hidden than others!)

With the duo only a fiver including UK postage, you could definitely get away with a sneaky payday treat for yourself without denting your camera gear fund…

Love & polaroids,
