Hey Mori crew,
Quite a different vibe suddenly. The summer is behind us, temperatures have dropped and the whole team has been sniffing their noses for two weeks now. 🤧😅
But let’s get straight to the latest news!
We’ve managed to fully catch up with our delays! At the height of the summer rush we had a delay of about 10 days, but thanks to our super hard working lab team we've managed to bring it back down. 💪 More details about this later in this newsletter but right now colour developing is at max 3 days turnaround and black and white 5.
We’re also stocking up on cameras again. SLRs are selling fast but loads are being refurbished right now and should be ready by the end of the month. If you’re in the market for a point and shoot or a medium format camera though we’re pretty sure you’ll find something you like. 😎
And we’ve also actually had loads of other things happening. We organised a super nice photowalk where we visited Forest and Saint-Gilles. Great weather and greater people made for a really fun time! We also hosted the first IRL session of Mardi Pepitas where @paullouisgodier interviewed film photographer @monsieurbonheur. We were super pleased with this first event and can’t wait to organise more!
And lastly, the dropbox situation. Last month we introduced TWO new Dropboxes, one in the Marolles and one in Gent! Amazing. 🔥
So what’s next?
First of all, our new community exhibition. Titled Summer and featuring 47 talented photographers, it’s a last look at what summer was for all of us. We’re very excited about the selection and hope we will see you this Saturday at 7pm for the gallery opening! Great pictures, good music and delicious drinks guaranteed!
Then there’s courses, we’re organising as many as we can but they're selling out so fast! So, if you want to learn the truth about film photography, make sure you book them as soon as you can. 😉
