The team at our Lomography UK Stores are here to help! Whether you’re a regular customer, a passer by or a disoriented tourist looking for an ATM, these are the friendly faces of Lomography.

Svala, Store Manager @ Lomography Soho, London.

Likes – Riding my bike (and overtaking racer- and fixie cyclist whilst doing it)
Dislikes – Flat hair
Your favourite camera – My LC-Wide and Contax G2
Favourite film – Lomography X-Pro Tungsten and Kodak Ektar 100
What you had for breakfast – Coffee…

Lee, Store Staff @ Lomography Soho, London.

Likes – Pets, cooking, brogues, smoked salmon, under ripe banana’s and winning.
Dislikes – People barging me on the tube, sticky hands, over ripe banana’s and smelly towels.
Your favourite camera – Too hard. Probably my Holga or my Canon EOS300. I probably don’t own my favourite camera, hence why I buy more.

What you had for breakfast – 2 Egg Omelette with a slice of Sourdough Bread and a sprinkling of parsley. Everyday.

Gemma, Store Manager @ Lomography East London.

Likes – Getting out of bed to get something, then hopping back in and your sheets are still warm and badly stuffed foxes.
Dislikes – Ordering at a restaurant and immediately regretting it, thus having food envy for the rest of your meal.
Your favourite camera – I have two old Russian LC-A’s that I love but the LC-Wide seems to be my go-to these days. And I am nothing without my Fuji Instax Wide and Mini.
Favourite film – I’m currently in mourning for Lomography Xpro Chrome.
What you had for breakfast – Black coffee. Black like my soul.

Rebecca, Store Staff @ Lomography East London.

Likes – Cats, bagels, wearing a completely unnecessary ribbon in my hair and buying people presents.
Dislikes – Tea, coffee and cheesy black and white family portraits.
Your favourite camera – LC-Wide. I think the Sprocket Rocket is really underrated too.
Favourite film – Fuji Velvia.
What you had for breakfast – Toast with blackcurrant jam. The best kind of jam!

Max, Store Staff @ Lomography East London.

Likes – Since moving to London I like living beyond my means, getting lost on purpose and smiling to yourself when you are getting soaked walking home in the rain.
Dislikes – Crocs and not having enough milk in the fridge for a cup of tea and a bowl of cereal in the morning.
Your favourite camera – The LomoKino. It’s a beaut! And my Pentax K1000.
Favourite film – I’m a sucker for anything Black and White.
What you had for breakfast – We all know how drunk I was last night so naturally I skipped breakfast this morning for fear of throwing up at Bethnal Green tube station.
