We are Bob & Irene Bazzoli, living in Phuket most of the time, at least when some work project doesn't take us off to some other exotic (or not so exotic) destination. Being mostly retired these days has given us time to spend on other things, mostly either camera collecting and research, studying photography, or taking pictures. After 20+ years in the high speed digital age we have found it to be very relaxing and pleasurable to 'ditch' the DSLR's and get back to basics. Snapping off dozens, or even hundreds of pictures and then 'hoping' that one of them comes out 'right' or relying on later re-sizing and or editing to get a 'good shot' is a habit that is very easily fallen into with digital. On the other hand, composing a photograph after much thought, or wandering around until you 'feel it', and waiting for the light to be 'just right', then finally taking the 'shot' is a whole different experience, and is 'art' in the hands of those that can do it well. It is what we strive for. Its also relaxing and can be very rewarding when those efforts end with a photographic gem.
As we spend most of our time in beautiful Phuket, Thailand, we will include some helpful links for visitors or locals who are Film Camera aficionado's and may need some help finding film or camera repair/service here in "The Land of Smiles".
Finally, as some of you will no doubt have experienced, do to a bad case of G.A.S (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) we will be selling or trading some duplicate cameras, lenses, accessories and some just plain strange stuff that we have ended up with. We think our pricing is reasonable market value and on many items we are selling them for less than we paid. May also trade for other interesting equipment.
A little about us and our philosophy:
