About

Hello there. My name is Jeff Soderquist. I’m a Seattle based film photographer, who loves nothing more than taking full advantage of the many luxuries living in the Emerald City affords me. More often than not, you’ll find me hiking along one of the regions many trails, enjoying a pint with friends at a local brewery, or taking in a University of Washington football or Mariners game.

My photography reflects these many adventures, as I strive to create a narrative of the world around me. Pinhole cameras are my primary tool set with which I record the light around me. You’ll also find a healthy dose of Holga, and various other medium format and 35mm cameras used to create my images. That being said you won’t find much talk about camera gear or post processing tips here, as neither topic excites me all that much. For me photography is less about the technical aspect of making an image, and more about the journey taken to create them. What you’ll find here is honest dialogue about the photographic process, from the birth of an idea to the finished product.

I invite you to join me in the conversation. You’d be amazed at how much knowledge and insight each of has bottled up inside. Why not share a little?

    well Jeff, it is a pleasure to know you!
    Recently I also started a photoblog for my pinhole stuff, but I am not as good as you with writing, so I just post my pics and that’s all!
    I’ll be glad to follow your blog both for the wonderful pictures as for your brilliant writings.

    • Thanks Jesús, pleasure to know you as well.
      Your work is quite inspiring and poetic all on its own. I’m often taken by how much your able to convey to your audience through the title of your images alone.

  2. well…im also on your side of the coast…im just over the border…BC!
    but tell me…do you use your photography to live on..or do you have a proper full time job as well…like all of us here…LOL!

    • A very valid question. Photography is certainly not paying my rent. I have a full time office job crunching numbers and clicking boxes pertaining to government information. Very boring stuff, but it pays the bills and allows me to peruse my photographic adventures.

      • 🙂 i thought as much! but i suppose…if taking photos became work…then we would all get very bored with it..if it became just like an every day job i mean!
        meantime, im working on getting together as many like-minded photographers as possible, collatinig all our work somehow in one database…and then offering it to agencies, galleries etc….any sales resulting from that database to be shared equally amongst all members….i dont know if its gonna work…but hey, at least it should get us some recognition and maybe get some money coming in….what do you say…?

  3. It is a pleasure to follow your blog Jeff. Your images are truly fantastic, I follow you on Flickr, and I just love your photography.
    I’m addicted to film photography, and that is what my blog is about. Not that good at writing in English, so it is mostly images.
