Time to join the StreetPX crew for Film Week 2017, as we show our love for the wonderful world of analog photography. For the second year, we wanted to set up a week where we put aside the digital cameras and mobile phones, pick up an analog camera and bring light and emulsion back together again.
With contests, photo walks and a very exciting film centric show with Nick Mayo of Nick Exposed on YouTube AND a special guest co-host, Pete Rosos of Berkeley, CA.
Below is a run-down on all plans so far. Check back soon for updates.

// Film Photo Walks
Saturday, September 23, 2017
Grab a friend (or many), a film camera and hit the streets. It doesn’t matter where you are, just enjoy yourself and the wonderful world of analog photography.
Bay Area Photo Walk Info:
Meeting up at Glass Key Photo – Time TBD
Not in San Francisco?
That’s okay… Gather your friends and plan a walk in your own town. Then share your work in the StreetPX Lounge.
Don’t have a film camera?
Head over to your local thrift store… They usually have many for dirt cheap. Or, just grab a disposable on Amazon. Get them scanned and enter your favorite in the contest above.
Let’s Have a Great Film Week!
Sharing how they got to where they are and why they chose to do what they do.
