The Instant Film Society was founded in 2012 to increase awareness, accessibility & understanding of analog instant photography.
In the fall of 2012, Daniel Rodrigue and Justin Goode met for the first time over a beer at a local bar in Dallas. Their paths first crossed due to their outspoken passion for instant film. Following that fateful meeting the pair began vectoring towards what is now the Instant Film Society, a group of photographers who enjoy sharing with others what they prefer to do most of the time ... shoot instant film. The Instant Film Society's first #PolaWalk was scheduled at the State Fair of Texas in 2012, and soon after was the first "PolaCon". The rest is "instant history."
