The ability to immortalise moments through still images began with  Thomas Wedgwood in 1790 and culminated in the work of the French inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in 1826. Since then photography has continued to evolve, revolutionizing the techniques and materials used to give moments a touch of eternity. Over the last 20 years digital photography has represented the new wave of innovation in this field, whereby now just about anybody can take thousands upon thousands of pictures without needing much more than a mobile phone.

There are however many who still look back to the times of analogue photography, where the art of capturing the right moment at the right time, with the right light is still alive. To cater for these artists there are a few shops that sell cameras, picture films and all sorts of other equipment that were the daily bread and butter of photographers. We are proud to have one such shop on Blomming: f64photo.
