About & Process

My name is Tom Hvala. I shoot with an Olympus 35SP using Agfa Vista, or a Minolta CLE with Portra. I adopt a minimalist approach to both my photography and business.

1. Select your prints and check out.

2. All negatives and prints are developed using Melbourne businesses. I use Hahnemühle Photo Rag, printed by a professional printer.

3. I have some framed stock, however I can also arrange for framing upon request. I use Frames Ready Made (often full-bleed, in Vic Ash) in Brunswick and charge cost price. 

4. Orders will be printed and usually received within one week, longer if shipped. 

5. If in Melbourne, pick up / drop off can be arranged. Use code 'localpickup' to waive shipping costs.
