Feature your Film

Film slows you down and makes you think 

"What has happened in the digital era is that making a photograph has become a thoughtless act, a reflex. If we load a roll of film into a 35mm camera, we know there are only 36 possible images before reloading. The result is that we take more time in selecting the images we really want to make, and more time in making the photograph." ~ Kent Miles 

Real moments ~ Real people on 35mm

We’re keen to share your film with our community and hopefully inspire others to explore film photography. 

Folk on Film x Against the Grain

A collaborative project by Surfolk and fellow likeminded creative folk. A homage to a simpler time and way of life. Inspired by the medium of film photography, for its ability to slow us down & capture authentic moments. 

If you would like to submit your recent roll of grainy shots captured on your Folk on Film Camera we'd be stoked to feature you. Whether it be apart of our Folk on Film x Against the Grain campaign or a collection of shots featured on our feed, heres what you need to do:

If you're happy to answer a few questions, we would love to know more about you and your passion for film.


  1. Whats your local break/beach?
  2. What got you into film/photography?
  3. What comes to mind when you hear surfolk?
  4. Have you had any #againsthegrain moments? (dive in the deep end, stand apart from the “crowd” ~ go after your dream) 

Please share your question answers below and email anywhere from 10-20 film shots to us at contact@surfolk.co

Cheers for the opportunity to share your art!
