The Goodspace – A Film Photography Blog

Hello, and welcome to the Dora Goodman blog!

Whatever it was that brought you here; interest in our fully modular Goodman Zone, our fun and quirky Scura pinhole cameras, or perhaps one of our classic cameras beautifully adorned in high-quality wood veneer, you have come to the right place. Through this section of the website, we will continue to bring you fun and practical articles involving all things ‘Good’, so be sure to check back often.

Most of all articles are written by our copywriter, Jess Hobbs, a film photographer based out of Montreal, Canada. When she’s not out photographing on the vibrant city streets, she is most often found hiking through old-growth forests or exploring the wide expanses of rural landscapes. Through this blog, she will share her personal experiences using the wide range of Goodman cameras and accessories, and help you all on your own journey.

We hope you’ll enjoy the read!
