Canister Pride Edinburgh Photowalk 2019

Canister Camera Club is getting together for a special analogue photography photowalk in support of Pride Edinburgh 2019

Meeting from 11am to 12pm at the wonderful Hemma Bar, 73 Holyrood Road to load up on film, coffee and breakfast for those that need it. They’ll be a few select rolls for sale in case you’re running low, DM us on Instagram @canistercameraclub with any requests.

At 12pm we head out and jostle for position before the march heads off at 12.30pm. We’ll walk with the march however the group will most likely splinter off in search of shots. Any late comers, slow starters or lost souls can be scooped up from outside Revolution, 30a Chambers Street on the way past around 1.30pm.

As the march moves on to the EUSA Campus, George Square and then the Meadows we will reconvene at The Royal Dick at Summerhall from 3pm.

More details on Pride Edinburgh 2019 can be found here. We are not officially affiliated to the event, we’re just getting together to shoot some film, hang out and show our solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in Scotland and around the world.

As always Canister events are free and open to all.

Paul Marr // Guest Talk

Saturday 11th May at 3pm // Custom Lane, Leith


We're very excited to be welcoming freelance fashion photographer and post-production pro Paul Marr to Canister. Paul produces stunning dream-like fashion editorials for a range of publications, mostly shooting with his beloved Hasselblad and Kodak 120 film.

Collaboration plays a big part in Paul's work - from hair and make-up to stylists and set-designers - allowing him to craft images that seem to exist in another, more beautiful, ethereal world.

Paul also shoots Polaroids and 8mm shorts and will be presenting work and talking about his inspiration, process and post-production. 

Free and open to all.

Canister Pop Up Poster

Saturday 11th May // 10am - 5pm

Canister Pop-up Shop will be open for business all day at Custom Lane, Leith.

Head down early for some StreetCandy ATM400 specials only on the day.

StreetCandy ATM400 is a 35mm black and white ISO 400 film which has been repurposed, re-spooled and beautifully repackaged by Vincent Moschetti in France.

Originally manufactured as cashpoint / ATM surveillance film StreetCandy has a thin physical base (to save space in those holes in the walls!) so it's not recommended to push any more than one stop but at box speed it's perfect for street shooting in all conditions. Simply self-dev as per HP5 or support your local film lab, just let them know it’s spooled on to a recycled canister. Check out Vincent’s video from the link above for more info.

We'll also have a range of 35mm, 120 and instant film for sale as well as books, zines and our own brand accessories, all created via collaborations within the Canister Camera Club community. 

Shop local. Shoot global.
