We are Jason and Staci Messing, a husband and wife photography team, living in Vol Nation, Knoxville, Tennessee.
In a market saturated with photographers at various levels and with varying years of experience, we think it's important to offer a skill set that makes you stand out from the crowd. This is why we have based our business on a film style that not only includes actually shooting old school developed film photos but also editing our digital photos to look like film as well.
Shooting film is not an inexpensive endeavor, but the initial investment is completely worth the cost when the outcome is clear. Rich skin tones and vibrant colors make film images pop, but the initial step in deciding to become a film photographer is selecting the camera that is best for you. This first leap into the world of film is what this guide is all about--choosing the camera that works best for your budget, your skill level, and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve in your photos.
We always strive to answer the question, "Why shoot film?" That answer is easy when you see the result of the investment in client satisfaction.
