About Us

Hello. We are Optiko. 

We collaborate with amateur photographers from all over the world to share their analogue photographs on our website and in our printed publications. 

We are currently putting together our first printed journal for publication this summer. It will be building on what we have achieved with our previous publications, but offering more content, inspiration and value for money for our readers.

Optiko was created in 2011 by Steve King (later joined by his brother Adam) as an online project, to highlight the work of the many analogue photographers that we were aware of, but also to allow other photographers to share their work on our Flickr group pool. 

We believe that photographs should be seen in print as well as on screen, so we made a decision in 2012 to produce our first zine. 6 years and 7 zines later, the number of submissions has far exceeded the number of pages the zines can accommodate. The journal will allow us to include many more of these submissions, without losing focus of our original objectives.

If you would like to submit something for our consideration please visit our website www.optiko.co.uk or email us at optiko.journal@gmail.com
