You can find a lot of Photographers in Latin America shooting film, either professional or amateur.

In the last one month I found a couple of professionals making a marriage in Mexico City using Nikon FM and another couple in the suburbs from São Paulo, Brazil, making pictures of students in a public school (for sale to their parents). I found them (recently) in Peru, Chile, Colombia and Argentina, also.

Amateurs are using film cameras also, mainly senior citizens (including my 70+ years old parents).

Despite the big number of cameras embedded into mobiles, cheap digital cameras, and for each day less options for films and cameras for them, it is yet common in Latin America, either in big urban centers as well at country side.

Film is not dead. Yet...
