    Hello~Nasir Hamid!I really find out your photoblog.Do you remember me?
    I am the student from Taiwan with my Nikon FM camera and we met on the oxford street. I saw my own photo which you shot. It’s so beautiful. How amazing the colors are! I love it so much. Thanks you! Besides, I also aprreciate your other photos. I think you like profile, right? I developed my film recently and found your photo which I shot. Then I remember you had given me the letter! If you want to see that photo, I can email it for you. Good luck and nice to meet you!

      Hey Shouz,
      Of course I remember you :-)
      I’ve emailed you, it would be great to see the portrait of me that you made.

      Cheers,
      Nasir

    Nasir,

    Love your photogrpahy mate! especially the shot outside the launderette I found on Flickr in the artofphotography group. I aspire to take such quality images. Just need to find the local launderette to practice….

    • Nasir Hamid says:

      Thanks very much. I feel annoyed about not having thought of photographing laundrettes years ago. There aren’t many left in Oxford.

  4. Hi Nasir, I was in Oxford in November and was taking pictures when you approached me, you took a pic of me taking a picture of you, I just wanted to share with you the picture I took:

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Nasir – your photos are amazing! I was at the Varsity Games a few weeks ago when you came to photograph. I was wondering whether the photos of the netballers worked out? I really hope so!

    • Nasir Hamid says:

      Hey Hannah, thanks for your message. I’m just about to post some new images and your portrait will be one of them. Sorry for the delay.

    • Hannah says:

      oh they’re fantastic. thank you so much, looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful pictures!

    Dear Nasir,
    Your blog is fantastic and your pictures are incredible: I already found Oxford wonderful, but I have seen the city with another eye thanks to your snapshots!
    I also have a favor to ask you: I was at the Keble Ball last Saturday and I am pretty sure you took a picture of one of my friend. Since his birthday is coming soon, I was thinking that he would love to get the picture as a present. I was thus wondering if you would be kind enough to allow me to get this picture from you…
    Many thanks in advance, and once again, bravo for your blog!

  7. Hi Nasir,
    Your blog is brilliant. And the quality of pictures is great. I think the Kodak Portra 400 colour film is superb. I have started using Fuji Velvia 100 (120 colour slide film, 6 x 4.5cm) and its amazing. I used to shoot film in the 80’s and 90’s. And then took up digital. But now, like you and a growing mass of people, I am going back to film. I’ve started using and collecting cameras of all sorts. I have a Voigtlander Vito BL, an Ensign 16/120 folding camera (both manual everything) a Pentax MX, a Minolta AF-7000 and many others, as well as my trusty Canon 400D for convenient digital work. I’m going to buy a rangefinder next. Something like a Canon Canonet QL17 if I can find one. I might even buy a Mamiya 7ii (120 format).
    Anyway, I love your work. Keep going.

    Hi Nasir
    Great chatting to you the other day. Your portraits are wonderful. Looking forward to seeing mine – for someone who hates being photographed that’s saying something. Look me up on Flickr sometime you can find me at JasonR.
    Best.

    I came across your work after noticing your comment on my friend’s photostream (so this was pure coincidence), and this is one of the most refreshing places on the Internet I’ve visited for a long time.

    Your pictures are very true and revealing, yet beautifull at the same time. I run a somewhat similar project regarding Krakow and found your pictures very inspirational.

    • Nasir Hamid says:

      Many thanks for your kind comment. I’ve been inspired by lots of photographers on Flickr so it’s nice to hear that someone has felt similarly about my own photography.

    Hi Nasir

    I love your blog and especially the quality of your B&W work. I was wondering if you would share a little bit of information about your scanning technique particularly which scanner and software you are using and how you get your scans to look so good.

    Regards
    Steve

    Hey Nasir,
    Your pictures are absolutely stunning! I wondered if you also did pictures at more “formal” events, like cocktail receptions etc. If ever you were interested, please contact me, we would love to have you!
    Cheers,
    Sixtine

    Hi nasir!

    We met at the Oxford Fashion Week Casting a few weeks back, I am the chap that took a keen interest in your Mamiyas and we had a chat about Medium format. I am loving looking at your blog and your MF images. Hopefully i’ll catch you around town when I’m shooting too.

    You took my portrait on some Fuji 100 alongside my girlfriend. I was wondering if you could send a TIFF or JPEG of the scan of that slide if you have it in your archives somewhere to myself? We are the last couple on the blog post. It would be fantastic!

    Keep up the excellent work.

    Tom

    Wow Nasir great work here! I was recommended your page by Alex from the same school we went too. You capture the image so well. Impressive!

  14. Corey Dion says:

    Great photgraphy! You do a great job better than the action photos my dad takes with his Canon EOS 60D. I came across your blog by googling “Bmx in oxford.”

  15. Peter Dunn says:

    Hey Nasir,

    Wow, you’ve got some absolutely amazing shots on here! It was a pleasure to meet you today, I’ll send you a copy of your portrait once edited.

    Dear Nasir ,

    We have not met, but I often view your images and reflect upon your excellent portraits and composition, such as with this Flickr link below.

    Pertaining to this image, Tri-X and Rodinal 1+50 at EI 1600. I am wondering how many mins you give to development and agitation method?

    Thank you for your time and any processing recommendations for push process with Tri-X and Rodinal.

    Best regards,

    Nasir,

    I am not sure if it’s you that I met during my Oxford trip on August 8th. last year. I am from Shanghai, China. I took two photos for you, and promised to see them to you. But I am sorry to say, my email didn’t get any reply from you. So if it’s really you, please reply me via my email.

  18. Rebecca says:

    Hi Nasir,

    I love your photography! Where do you buy your cameras from? I’d like to try out more film photography, but don’t really want to buy cameras off ebay; can you recommend any good second hand shops?

    Thanks :)

  19. Bruce Hammersley says:

    I will send my shot of you over but I am away from computer for a while, so may be some delay. B
