Film Is Not Dead

by Jon Canlas


Jonathan Canlas is one of the leading wedding photographers in US. He’s loud, he’s funny, he’s an open book in every sense of the word—even down to the fact that he’s now a published author. There is no mask on his beliefs or on his emotions and he’s not afraid to let his voice be heard. His unyielding expression of his vision and his tireless pursuit of capturing the light in people and in life have endeared his images to the photography community.

Although he is a giant advocate of film photography, Jon’s true passion is his family. Jon, his beautiful and talented wife, Callie, and their six kids live in Hauula, Hawaii. Jon’s home and family is the primary feature and expression of joy—and source of inspiration—in his personal work.

What is FIND?

The Film Is Not Dead workshop (or FIND) is a match, not a wildfire. And at the end of it, it’s up to you to magnify that flame in your life and career—but now with a community of brothers and sisters rooting for you, cheering on your successes and acting as a resource for you to continue your FIND experience.

That’s ultimately what makes FIND special: the continual guidance in terms of advice, education, critiques, compliments, and encouragement—because we know that the success of the individual is the success of the family.

Raw, rebellious and creative – these are the qualities that capture the unrivaled atmosphere and spirit of Germany’s capital, Berlin. Constantly recreating itself, East Berlin in particular has become a magnet for creatives in the lasts years and that’s where we’ll be!

Some american slang words might be used though : )
