They Shoot Film is a photo collective started by two photographers, Patrice Esser and Garrick Fujii. We are based in San Francisco and Los Angeles respectively. "#" marks photos taken by Patrice and "+" marks photos by Garrick.
As French photographer Robert Doisneau shared, "the marvels of daily life are exciting" and this site serves as a bunker space for us to share our captures of people and life in their everyday element. All our photographs are shot in 35mm or medium format film. We enjoy the art and the freedom of shooting in film and though the digital front advances strong, we stand firm in our love for film and celebrate its continued place in photography today.
