In 2013 I set up Au Premier Plan and began manufacturing the RealitySoSubtle 6×17 (120 film) panoramic pinhole camera. Since then I have added a 4×5″ (sheet film), a 6×6 (120 film) model and a 6×12 panoramic pinhole camera.
All cameras are manufactured by me personally in my workshop using CNC machining and traditional manual processes. My goal is to produce precise, durable and well made cameras that are a pleasure to use.
My love of photography and my background in mechanical engineering feeds directly into my camera-making. I live with my wife and 2 kids near Nantes (France) having moved here from Ireland in 2011.
