Hello, tell us a bit about yourselves and your Lomographic journey.
Hello, my name is Kamal Faiz Kamaludin, but mostly everyone calls me Kamal. I’ll be 21 years old this year. Currently, I’m studying on quantity surveying at UiTM Shah Alam. In 2007, I was introduced to Lomography by a friend from school. Since then, I fell in love with it and kept on experimenting and studied about lomography.

Show us your favorite photo in your collection and why?
Why? Because there’s an eye contact between me and the animal. Please save the animal from irresponsible parties.

Wow, sounds fun! Tell us what the best part shooting with a bunch of Lomography enthusiast?
The best part is when you could talk all day long with them talking about lomography, and share new things with each other.

Oh My God. Too many to list up. Haha.

Where do you develop your film at Johor? Do you have any other recommendation and what is the price and any other specific notes?
Usually me and my friends often to develop our films at Kedai Gambar Fali located at Taman Sri Skudai. Other than that, we’ll also send to Kedai Foto Robin at Taman Sentosa which placed in front of the famous JB’s Bubur Nasi.
