Cameras Downunder – One Of Australias Largest Camera Collections
G'day, my name is Holger Schult. I am the founder and curator of Camerasdownunder.com. The passion for all things photographic runs the family. Both my sons have played with cameras from the early years of their lives and as the digital revolution arrived they become increasingly fond of the old mechanical nature of the cameras they grew up with. It has been a win-win situation of me over the years as my sons' financial support for my collecting has allowed me to enjoy my hobby and allowed them to continue being ‘exposed’ to cameras from the pre-digital era and in many cases to cameras older than all of us.
For me my life began for me in post-war Germany as a press photographer, capturing images of the British Queen, the Beatles and other famous visitors to my birthplace of Hamburg, Germany.
