The Photographer's New Anthem


"I wanna be a cameraman so frickin' bad, earn enough to buy a Hasselblad. I'm gonna shoot all the covers for your magazine, keep the rights for future royalties..." Sing along and/or laugh out loud to this photography parody by Japanese photographers Irwin Wong and Mijonju!

If this isn’t passion for photography, I don’t know what is! Listen and watch as Japanese lensmen Irwin Wong and Mijonju show their undying love for cameras and photography in “I Wanna Be A Cameraman.”

We’re laughing out loud here at the Lomography office because it is so relateable and I’m sure many photographers get what they’re talking about, too!

Irwin Wong feat. Mijonju – I Wanna Be A Cameraman

If it sounds familiar, that’s because it’s based on Bruno Mars’s hit song, “Billionaire”! Check out Irwin’s other photography parody called “Pay Me”, based on Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

Doesn’t this catchy tune want to make you quit your 9-to-5 for photography, too? Unless you’re already an in-demand and high-grossing photographer with tons of magazine covers. ;-)

    I don't know, but it's kinda weird to call a photographer a cameraman. hahahaha
    Movies and TV series come to mind everytime I hear the term cameraman hehe

    Haha photographer was hard to substitute "billionaire" so Irwin came up with Cameraman instead, :) he's the mastermind behind all this :)
