Bill Jay

Bill Jay around the time he took on editorship of Camera Owner magazine.

News reached me this week of a film, currently still in production, titled Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay.

It’s being produced under the aegis of The United Nations of Photography, an independent platform designed to encourage informed lens-based media conversation and debate.
Visit their website here:

I was contacted by the Producer & Director, Grant Scott, with regard to using some images of Camera Owner/Creative Camera magazine covers in the final edit. As I appear to be the only person with a complete set of the mags I’m happy to oblige.

News on the film’s release schedule and screenings will follow as I hear more.

Weston Meters

A nice little no-frills website dedicated to the glorious Weston Exposure Meter – Invented by an Englishman who had emigrated to the US – Edward Weston – not the famous photographer of the same name!

My two trusty versions of the classic:

Euro Master II (1980s) and Master III (1950s)
