Episode 22: Mike Padua: Owner / Shoot Film Co.
Photographer Mike Padua is old school. In more ways than one. With roots in the punk rock world of his youth, this Northern Californian makes fun merchandise for the growing demographic—and market—of analog film photographers. His small business churns out stickers, embroidered patches, t-shirts, lapel pins and more—all paying clever homage to a craft many thought had died out with the digital revolution. Not so says Mike. Film is most certainly NOT dead, and it’s adherents are proud of that fact. If you’re one of those evangelists, Shoot Film Co. has the swag and merch you’re looking for—while supplies last.
