After my Mamiya 645 sadly broke during during the summer of 2020, I have been without a medium format camera.  The need to get a replacement has become more pressing as I have being asked to do quite a few assignments that include portraiture. I spent quite some time weighing up options and looking around second hand shops in person and online before finally coming to a decision.  I sold some of my digital camera gear to fund the purchase of this Hasselblad 500c/m.

Shooting with the Hasselblad 500c/m

The Hasselblad 500c/m ceased being manufactured in 1994 and is fully manual which means there are no electronic parts and there is no light meter. All that is done externally with a handheld meter. I also got the 150mm f4 Zeiss lens to go with it as I will mainly be using this for portrait work. It is a beautiful piece of workmanship that is built to last. I hope that it serves me as well, or even better, than my trusty Mamiya 645 did over the years.

I am available for portrait work in Hong Kong and over the past month have been asked to shoot weddings, personal portraits, business head shots and other portrait work. You can see some of this film portrait work here and if you would like to discuss any potential work then you can reach me here
