Always On Film was created in the winter of 2018 with the idea of adding fuel to the fire of the analog resurgence. At a time where the prices of film cameras are rocketing through the sky, the plan was always to be able to provide reliable film cameras at an affordable and fair price, making it accessible to everyone.

We originally started on Depop in late 2018 and since then, we’ve met and chatted with lots of our customers, received over 550 positive reviews and helped many people pick up their first camera.

Outside of AOF, we live and breathe analog photography. We have travelled the world over the last 10 years with all types of film cameras shooting & documenting the life outside of England. For us, AOF is an extension of our passion and well, to be honest, we’re not in this game to make a quick profit, we want to create something long-lasting that everyone can benefit from.

You can expect to find a range of 35mm and medium format film cameras along with all kinds of accessories in the shop. If you’re looking to get into film photography, but you’re not sure where to start, please get in touch and we can help find the perfect camera for you.

Always on Film is…


Jake has been shooting film for over 10 years, he has travelled all over the world with his cameras taking portraits and landscapes, he also had his first gallery back in 2018. After completing a stint in a retail camera shop in New Zealand, he started forming ideas of coming home and eventually setting up his own shop.

In the Winter of 2018, Jake founded Always On Film with the idea that film photography could be accessible and fun for everyone.


In the summer of 2018, Jamie set off to the US equipped with a point & shoot borrowed from Jake. After getting his first two rolls developed, he became a sworn analog convert and has been shooting film ever since.

Jamie joined Always On Film in early 2021, bringing his experience in web development and marketing with him.
