Drawn to the landscape of Australia’s south west, large format landscape photographer Alex Bond has been practising professionally since 1989.

He uses a 4×5 wooden field camera and conventional black and white and colour transparency films. All his films, including the E-6 colour are processed in his traditional wet darkroom.

Alex believes his direct involvement with the materials and the techniques used in film based photography and traditional wet darkroom printing  are an essential ingredient in making an expressive print.

He has traveled to many West Australian national parks, creating images for magazines as well for his own product line of postcards, calendars, books and posters. Alex Bond publishes under the imprint of Stormlight Publishing and has been the recipient of both State and National Print Awards for excellence in print.

  1. Hi, I am interested in a photography course, especially the darkroom part. However, I’d like to use my own camera, which is an Olympus OM2N film camera. Would you allow a student to use this kind of camera? Would you have a course that caters for that? Ideally I want a course that will help me to understand my camera better and use it better, as well as the possibility of developing my own photos.

    1. Hello Nadja, using your Olympus OM2n is fine. I offer weekend workshops, usually over 2 days, one learning about the camera and photographing, the other developing and printing what you photographed the day before.
