The second installment of this year's Fireside Chat series shines a spotlight on Daniel, a former barista turned film photography aficionado and the visionary behind Hands On Film, an independent film photography brand and processing lab nestled in Singapore's Pearl's Hill Terrace enclave. Starting from modest beginnings in his bedroom, Daniel has expanded Hands On Film into a reputable studio offering film developing and scanning services. The brand has made its presence felt at regional events like Artbox in Singapore, Malaysia, and Bangkok, and actively engages the community through film developing classes and workshops.

In this engaging Coffee Chats edition, Daniel will share his personal journey into the realm of film photography, his reflections on the analogue photography resurgence, the intricacies of establishing a niche business, and practical advice for film enthusiasts. This session is a must-attend for those captivated by the #35mm and #FilmIsNotDead movements or anyone keen on exploring a new hobby in a supportive, inspiring environment.

Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to have their portraits taken by Daniel using a vintage Mamiya Universal Press camera from 1969, adding a personal touch to the experience. Additionally, Hands On Film will host a retail pop-up during the MCC meetup from 1:30pm to 5:30pm, offering a curated selection of vintage film cameras and 35mm films for purchase.

A nominal registration fee is required for participation, which will be redeemable as store credit for on-site shopping. The session will be complemented with coffee and light refreshments, ensuring a relaxed and enriching experience for all participants.
