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.

Your favourite camera – The LomoKino. It’s a beaut! And my Pentax K1000.
