We are looking for dedicated American Lomographers who want to get more involved in the international Lomography Community. You will become a representative of Lomography in your city, as well as a well known regular contributor to the Lomography International Magazine, and get freebies, opportunities and LomoLove from us! Sound awesome? Know the details after the break.

Krediler: anarchy

Do you want to share your city with the world?
Do you like writing?
Do you love Lomography?
Then you could be one of our brand new CitySlickers!

What the hell is a CitySlicker?

A CitySlicker is anyone (a newbie film photographer, a hardcore Lomographer, a student, or even a professional) hand-picked by Lomography who regularly writes interesting lifestyle pieces about their city. Each month, Lomography will set a writing task for all the CitySlickers! For example:

‘Cover a local exhibit/gig in your town and share it to the community’
‘Fill us in on life at your university’
‘Try out the brand new XXX camera and write about your experience’

… or anything that’s analogue, creative, and inspiring under the sun!

How to Be a US CitySlicker

Please send an email to erin.emocling@lomography.com with the following bits of information:

(Subject) US CitySlicker: [Your Nickname]

  • Full Name
  • City (only the cities listed below will be considered)
  • LomoHome
  • (Most importantly) Why you think you’d make a great CitySlicker

We need 2 (two) CitySlickers from the following locations:

Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Columbus (Ohio), Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Durham/Chapel Hill, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Fe or Albuquerque, Seattle, and Washington DC

You will earn special Piggy Points for every article published. You will also have the chance to get your hands on a range of Lomography products and goodies from us! We also often get invited to festivals and events around the country that we can’t go to, so we will be happy to pass these on to you from time to time so you can go and shoot them and review them as your monthly task. Alternatively, if there is an event you particularly want to cover we can use our evil powers to try and get you a press pass! Above all, we will support you in publishing and publicizing your writing.

This opportunity is voluntary, unpaid, and is only open to those who live in the United States (in the cities mentioned above). You do not need to be an experienced or a published writer but experience will help us to choose you, so please include any relevant links in your application.

Thank you!

Meanwhile, you may read articles from our Manila CitySlickers and UK CitySlickers! Enjoy!

    Such a shame you only need CitySlickers in Manila, the UK and the USA :( You should have CitySlickers all around Europe and all around the world! :) I'd love to be CitySlicker in my city, it sounds like so much fun!

    I don't know if there's anything really interesting in Sacramento, but ill go find something, never really wrote anything for anyone so I'd be super nervous, especially with all the fine work on this site, its hard to compete. But ill try and apply...

  20. dearjme

    What about Hawaii!!! :)

    I think you guys should either add Raleigh to Durham/Chapel Hill, since everyone includes the 3 together normally, and also Charlotte as its own entry.

  22. ghostblastoise

    No Puerto Rico? We're part of the US y'know!

    @carlota_nonnumquam: We will be expanding the City Slickers to Europe as well, it will take us some time.

  24. alexandrak
    alexandrak ·

    Hey Guys! It's just a first round! There will be plenty of time for us to get to other cities, so don't think that we've left you out on purpose, or that you'll be left out forever! Let us get the program up and running in the US (our first try here!) so we can expand it to cover all the awesome places that you all live :) so don't fret @ghostblastoise @nation_of_pomation @dearjme @deja-mew @natalieerachel @gatorchick :)

  25. alexandrak
    alexandrak ·

    Also! Feel free to apply even if your city isn't on there and if we love your proposal, we may chose you anyway!

    Los Angeles! Yess

  27. nation_of_pomation
    nation_of_pomation ·

    I just meant you should just make one entry for Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, since they're so close together and everyone refers to them as a unit most of the time.

  28. alexandrak
    alexandrak ·

    Thanks!

    @alexandrak...awesome! Looking forward to it, or I may go ahead and apply now for kicks and giggles! :)

    After writing my above comment a month ago, I set out with my camera to see if I was right in saying sacramento is "boring". I was wrong. Yes, ill admit, its somewhat boring to me, but I looked at it from a third person perspective and realized that there are hidden adventures here. We have many different festivities. Throughput the year. So long story short, when is round two for cityslicker applicants?

    A Salute to the Masters: Unstuck Posters (A Tribute to Aaron Siskind)

    After writing a series of articles dedicated to arguably some of the greatest street photographers, this time I wrote one dedicated to the American abstract expressionist artist Aaron Siskind - a master of immortalizing details of nature, body parts and architecture, as well as walls and objects found in the streets - and his series of photographs of unstuck posters.
