Store, Shipping & contact


The Store:

My name is Walter Gawronski. I'm an amateur Photographer who shoots film and had trouble finding a reliable source of supply for my film work. I figured you must be in the same boat - Hence the Store. 

After a year, I discovered I'm also older than I realised and found it a bit much for me, so my Daughter is now the Owner of The Film Bloke Store, and I am running it for a year or two until she knows the ropes.

You may find when you make payment the name Joanne Harvey comes up in Paypal or where ever, that's correct, so don't fret :)


The shipping charges are based on the total weight of goods you purchase. Sometimes I can fit your goods into a smaller Oz Post Satchel, and if I can, I'll refund the difference to you.


We don't have staff to handle phone calls so I prefer contact by email. wally at thefilmbloke dot com. (excuse the address format, it's for the benefit of bots trawling for email addresses)

Anyway, browse, have a look around. If you have a suggestion on how we can improve, please email me.
