Greek LomoAmigo Sillyboy and His Fisheye No. 2


Our LomoAmigo Sillyboy from Athens, Greece is a vintage pop musician. Know more about him and his music and see his fisheye film photographs after the break!

Name: Charalambos Kourtaras
Location: Athens, Greece

Tell the community a little bit about yourself? What do you do for fun and is it the same thing you do for a living?
I am an independent musician and I spend most of my time working on music. Fun and work are really close. I produce music for the media (TV – Radio – Cinema) as my main work and I compose music, perform live and record records for my personal projects.

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing)?
I wouldn’t call my self a lomographer. I made some efforts in the past not so successful I might say, but I’m getting there!

How did you like shooting with the Fisheye No. 2 and what were people´s reactions to the camera?
I believe the Fisheye 2 camera is very popular by now, therefore the reactions are not so strange. I on the other hand find it very amusing shooting with that really gets everything “in”.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/ Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
Imagine an entire film with the lens covered..but I’m not the only one!

Describe the Fisheye No. 2 in five words.
Funny, Small, Light, Fish, Eye

If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your Fisheye 2, who would it be and why?
I would take a nice picture of Fisheye 1…past but not forgotten!

What’s your favorite photo you took with the Fisheye 2 and why?
I still don’t have a favorite photo but when I do I’ll let you Know.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
Big Love “Fleetwood Mac”
All She Wants Is “Duran Duran”
Modern Guilt “Beck”

What got you into photography at the first place?
My dear friend Denise… It’s hard not to be a photographer near her!

Your advice to future Fisheye No. 2 shooters.
Always uncover your lens..and the rest will follow.

You may find more information on Sillyboy on his Facebook Page.

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.
