Why do you shoot analog?

I love my hassel to much to go digi for stills.

What medium do you like better and why?

Because it's hasselblad, you get 1/500 sync speed with flashes, and you can go up to 1/2000 with no flash with the 200 series.

How did you get into taking fotos?

Just started shooting skateboarding one day, it is pretty technical so it taught me a lot.
