Pentax Ambassador Short Film


Link Posted 08/02/2019 - 21:11
Hi all... I made a short film with the excellent Matty Graham (who shot and edited the whole thing) up in Northumberland a few weeks back for Pentax as part of the Ambassador role I do for them... we shot it in just under a day in Budle Bay in Northumberland in mid January, and Ricoh Imaging have just posted a link to it on their Facebook page... it's called "The Moment", and basically covers why I use Pentax cameras, with a fair bit too about why I tend to take the kind of photos I do... do drop by and have a look as and when you have a mo...

Thanks and best

A great insight Bill into how you go about creating your amazing images.

Northumberland is also such a wonderful place for photography, a haven for people who have a passion for the coast and minimalistic tranquil yet rugged scenes.

Thanks for sharing.

Well done Bill it was great to see the brand represented so well with your well polished film and insight into your passion for photography. You even said the P word out loud!
It was a great to hear your story but also great to see the Pentax brand recognised for having very capable cameras when used by a very accomplished

Fab short film Bill, very informative / interesting. Your thoughts on some aspects of photography mirror mine, although I think you are light years ahead of me in terms of your skill and creativity.

You have made me want to travel up to Northumberland, I have a couple of weeks off work in late Feb, so I might just take a few days out to go there.

Excellent film Bill. Really nice to watch.

It might be worth pointing out the advantage changing lenses in the field with a DSLR compared to Mirrorless ..... see this post...

Nice one Bill

Refreshing to see it's not all about fancy features, high end glass and accessories, and the glitzy appeal of a Brand name. Just a bloke who loves landscape photography choosing the best tools for the job

Nice film. Nice wellies... Nice photos....!! The camera's are well built and easy to use. Though my experience of WR isnt quite as enthusiastic as yours. 15-30 on camera. Filters on 24-70... ? The cost effective route you refer too ? Great film though enjoyed it.. Good to see someone spreading the Pentax/Ricoh photography name to the masses....!!
