Doctor Photo

Marcus je prijeten možakar in odličen fotograf, ki ima v središču Trsta svojo malo trgovinico “Doctor Photo“, kjer prodaja in popravlja staro analogno fotografsko opremo. Spoznal sem ga preko prijatelja Jožeta in kmalu od njega kupil svojo dvooko mamiyaflex kamero. Že nekaj časa me je zanimalo, kako izgleda njegova trgovina, včeraj pa sem ga končno uspel obiskati, saj sem mu v ordinacijo pripeljal pacienta na poseg. Na objektivu mamiye mi je namreč popravil zamaščeno zaslonko. Moram reči, da je izredno prijeten občutek, ko ti nekdo z ustnim dogovorom ob nakupu ponudi šestmesečno garancijo in te nato še sam opomni, da velja… Kljub temu, da je kamera stara že pol stoletja! In to v dobi, ko ti še garancija na papirju ne zagotavlja brezplačnega popravila novega artikla! Tako mi je ob prijetnem klepetu v njegovi trgovini popravil objektiv, prinesel espresso s sosednjega lokala, na koncu pa sva še naredila njegov portret, da sem stestiral popravljen objektiv in “nov” svetlomer Gossen Luna Pro.
Dela!

Marcus is a great guy and a wonderful photographer, who owns a little shop in Trieste, called “Doctor Photo“, where he sells and repairs old analog camera gear. I’ve met him through my friend Jože and soon after bought my twin lens mamiyaflex camera from him. Since I met him, I’ve wondered how his shop looks like and yesterday I finally paid him a visit, as I brought him a pacient to perform an operation on. The diaphragm on mamiya lens got greasy and sticky, so he cleaned it up for me. I must say it’s a wonderful feeling when someone honours a verbal agreement and reminds you that you still have warranty on the bought item… remember, it’s a half a century old camera! And to experience this in the times, when even a valid warranty card doesn’t guarantee you a free repair of an item you bought new! So, while we had a pleasant chat about photography and camera equipment, he repaired my lens, brought an espresso from a nearby coffee shop and then we also made a portrait of him, to test out the repaired lens and my “new” Gossen Luna Pro lightmeter.
It works!

Super, da ti ga je uspelo popraviti. V nasprotnem primeru bi bili prikrajšani za tvoje filmsko ustvarjanje.
