freddiefaith | | My mom and a sister of mine were both photographers/photo enthusiasts. When I was fifteen, I modeled for a friend of my sister's. At seventeen, I moved out from my family's home and started supporting myself full time by modeling. At nineteen, I got my first professional grade digital camera and started exploring photography - rather than modeling - myself. At twenty, I got my first film (non-instant) camera, a Holga 135TIM and then started collecting more lomography cameras. Now I'm one day away from being twenty-one (it's Sept. 3rd, 2012) and I've joined the Lomography online community.
