Beautiful iPhone Studio Portraits of Vintage Gear

There’s a reason the retro movement has such staunch supporters, and it’s not just because there are a lot of people with ironic facial hair intent on buying a camera that looks as old as possible. The old cameras were at once functional and beautiful, or at the very least beautiful, and an industry that prides itself on appreciating beauty can’t help but appreciate the beauty of their tools.

Treasured Cameras is a short photo series by photographer Julian Calverley that celebrates this aesthetic beauty in an ironic way: by taking portraits of vintage cameras using an iPhone.

The portraits, according to Calverley, are part of a promo piece that he’s in the process of shooting, and feature all of the favorite cameras in his collection. From top to bottom, you’ll find an Ebony Ti SV45TE, an ALPA SWA, a Nikon F2A, a Contax 645, an ALPA STC and a Nikon F3:

To see more of Calverley’s photography — including a lot of gorgeous iPhone behind-the-scenes pictures like these — head over to his blog, website, Instagram or VSCO Grid.
