My name is Austin Sawyer, and I am from Battle Creek, Michigan. I have been a photographer for several years now; I started in college where I learned to shoot, develop, and print film. I continued on to learn digital, editing, and lighting. Recently I sold most of my digital equipment in order to build my own darkroom. During this transition, I rediscovered my love for film photography, and I also discovered my new passion for vintage optics. I have always been interested in the technical aspect of photography, and now I have discovered a way to assist fellow photographers. My hope is to use modern digital equipment to demonstrate the beauty and character of vintage lenses.
