Small Print. The following links are external links i.e. the linked pages are not on this site. The contents are beyond our control. At the time of writing a link the Owner of Rolleigraphy did a check on that linked page and found nothing that appeared to be illegal or disturbing. However this may change overnight and the Owner rejects any responsibility for the contents of any external site linked from this site. This seems obvious, but in some countries unless rejected I would be responsible for the contents of linked sites. Now that this responsibility is formally rejected, have fun!


For a long time I have entertained the idea of composing a list of noted photographers who have used a Rolleiflex TLR at one time in their careers. For a number of reasons the project did not take off. I feared I might end up with lots of work maintaining the links. Another reason was that I did not want the list to be limited to well-known photographers.

Recently I found some web-sites of talented photographers who have expressed that they used or still use a Rolleiflex. That persuaded me to go ahead.
