While browsing for old Nikon lenses in antique stores in Long Street, Green Renaissance met The Collector – a man with a real passion for cameras. He has built up a collection of more than 1000 cameras over the years. We were lucky enough for him to invite us to his home (not open to the public) to view his impressive collection. He reaffirmed how important it is to do what you love.
Film Tip/Trick: Always be prepared to film – in this case, upon meeting him, we went directly to his home to spend two hours filming. Also, when interviewing, purposefully create pauses between your questions - this allows you to capture the awkward, real moments that occur between answers from your character.
