  1. I would absolutely love love love to have a copy of Belle Lumiere! Not only is it the gorgeous images with stunning photography, it is the emotion, the mood that this magazine portrays. There is a sort of nostalgia and mystery, while having a simple and soft beauty. Basically it is perfection, and as an aspiring film photographer who strives to capture emotion in every photograph, there is nothing more that I would want than to be able to see all of the inspiring photography this magazine has to offer.

    I would enjoy this little bit of beauty in the early coolness of morning with my cup of coffee. Before my children awake to create the daily chaos that is followed shortly by the rising heat of the New Mexico summer sun.

  5. I am French and shooting film and just the name of your magazine makes me want to read it! I have just relocated in France and as I am preparing some shoots in Provence, I am sure Belle lumière pages would fill my mind with beautiful inspiration.

    I would roll with excitement upon winning Volume I of Belle Lumiere and would immerse myself into the pages of pictures, processing all information to help me focus on my creativity, developing my own positive film shooting style. 🙂

    I am a natural light photographer and am inspired by the gorgeous images showcased in your magazine. I would be overjoyed to win this giveaway-thank you for the opportunity.

  9. Joanna says:

    Im so excited for this magazine to come out. It would take everything in me to not read it cover to cover in the car fresh from the mailbox. I’d savor it either on the deck in the morning light before everyone wakes with a big cup of coffee, or depending in when I got it read it on the beach in Tofino while my kids play and every once in awhile pick up my Mamiya and start shooting my own images. I have no doubt I’ll feel inspired after seeing the beauty in Belle Lumiere.

  10. Lauren says:

    I have just begun a love affair with film, inspirations are at an all time high when I see gorgeous images like those in your magazine. I can only imagine what kind of thing I’d want to shoot after reading it!

  11. Melinda J says:

    I am in love with glowing, ethereal quality of film photography and am excited to view this new magazine full of fresh and exciting perspectives! Belle Lumiere is the type of publication that you want to go back and leaf through, from first page to last, time and time again when you’re in need of artistic inspiration.

  12. I Would LOVE to win this!!! I am so excited for the amazing inspiration in it and to oooh and awww over the beautiful photos.

    I would LOVE to be able to check out this magazine. I am a budding film enthusiast and love following along on the blog. Plus, I have a styled shoot in two weeks and I could use a little extra inspiration for my debut into color film shooting. If I don’t win, I hope to be able to purchase in the future. Thanks for providing!

    I would so love to win this beautiful magazine, because while I make my living off of shooting families and seniors, I ADORE inspired stylized sessions, and what an incredible inspiration this would be to take an idea and make it my own! Thank you for this chance!

  15. Sandra M says:

    Shared on my FB page. I am just starting out with film and couldn’t be more encouraged about the process. I love the feel of what film images provide! If I won this issue, I would sit under an oak tree, by the lake near my house, sipping on a glass of wine and revel in the information and beauty of its contents! This would definitely be a keeper magazine in my house!

  16. I am moving to a new city (Portland, OR) at the end of this month. I would love to soak up everything in this magazine at the new coffee shops and tea houses I discover. I’m hoping to find inspiration for some film-only boudoir and model sessions. 🙂

  17. Dianna Baker says:

    I’d love it and would lay relaxing in my hammock from Mexico w a fresh fruity mixture 😉

  18. Omar Meza says:

    I recently submerged myself into the world of digital photography a year ago and it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I learned more about film photography. From what I’ve seen, film has an inconceivable way of capturing life’s moments in a “Belle” way! And what better way to treasure the beautiful quality of film than to experience it from your new magazine. I can already imagine seeing those gorgeous images taken by great photographers every single time I turn the next page. I can see nothing better than spending my summer with your amazing magazine in my hands as I spend the hours away marveling at how such a talented group of people could create such a “Belle” product:)

    I shared this post to my Facebook page, and I’d really love to win a copy of Volume I to be inspired by while shooting a beach session on the North Shore in Hawaii… but most likely I’ll be reading it on my back porch while the kids splash in the plastic pool. Still a film-worth moment. 🙂 Email stacy(dot)alderfer(at)gmail(dot)com . Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  20. Would LOVE LOVE LOVE a copy of this!! Just starting out in film and would love some extra inspiration! Shared on FB as well! Thank you!!

    oh my.
    this is gunna be so. good. I love printed magazines for the same reason I love working with film — the tangible is so completely lovely — words and images are best consumed this way, I think. And I would enjoy this one in particular whilst my little baby is asleep and I’m renewing new-mom-energy with an afternoon sweet tea by an open window. So looking forward to following you guys

    I would carry Volume 1 lightly beneath my arm along with a blanket, my favorite Rifle Paper Co notebook, a coral felt tip pen, and my big (almost nerdy) glasses. I’d go to one of my favorite spots by the Mississippi, where a huge cedar tree hangs over the river and a huge stone rests solidly in the water. I’d lay out the blanket, slip my sandals off, sit down, and dip my toes in. I’d open Belle Lumiere, shaded from the hot summer sun and lightly turn to the first page. Then, I’m sure, I’d be lost for hours. Birds soaring above, the wind whispering by, my hair tickling my shoulders, and my heart cherishing every beautiful word and image.
