Tom Bode

Entrepreneur, Photo ID Central Inc. in Portland, OR United States

In the early 1990's I began selling instant photos on the streets of Seattle using my grandfather's old Polaroid Land Camera 250. Over the next dozen or so years I took thousands of instant portraits around the NW and saw both Polaroid and Fuji films go out of production. I've been asked to speak about my experiences with instant films and why I believe they are having a comeback in popularity.
