Interview with Terry Magson

England-based photographer Terry Magson joined with us in few film photography projects before today coming back to share more of his work in an interview.

_ Hi Terry, can you tell us more about you?

I am a musician from the Isle of Wight, a small Island off the south coast of England. If I'm not making music I like to take photos. I feel a strong need to create, it comes from my emotional ego I guess and could have something to do with being left handed.

_ How did you get started taking pictures and why do you shoot film in this digital age?

I started taking photos out of curiosity, using a cheap digital camera. It seemed like fun that you could see your image on the screen straight after taking a shot, it must of been a future fascination thing. I took a few shots which I really liked, one being a puddle reflection shot of part of the Eiffel Tower which made me want to look into photography with a bit more depth. For me the film camera I use has a lot of character and is rewarding with mistakes to.

_ Tell us about your influences and what inspires you?

My Influences come from  my surroundings at the time, nature, or people I may be working with musically that inspire me, or maybe from something I've been listening to. I try to be mostly intuitive when shooting so anything could trigger that.

_ Are you currently working on any film photography projects?

No projects as such. If something happens naturally with these next set of films I have then maybe so.

_ We saw most of your photos shot in low-light or blurry conditions. Is it your style or is there any feelings you want to convey through your pictures?

I guess over the past couple of years I have formed a slight style. It was never intentional, but I would hope they reveal some kind of feeling or there would be no point to any of it. We are rapidly moving into a world that's lacking true feelings so it would be nice to think they do.

_ If you could photograph any person (past or present) who would you choose?

One of those big Instagram celebrities and I would probably leave the lens cap on.

_ What can you say to people who want to try analogue. Any tips?

Experiment and explore.
