My obsession is Lomo, but it’s no secret. I’m from New Zealand, which is also no secret. I’m also a fun person, but this photo will not prove that. Damn my serious face!!!

Favorite Fisheye feature: The flash! My tip for the fisheye is to sneak up on people and flash their ass!!!
Expert technique: Taking photos when one has had a few drinks. I don’t know if that’s a good tip or a bad tip.
Lomography? Freedom
Message: I wanna be famous.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
