One of our very first workshops was exploring with the LC-A+ during Chinese New Year! Dragons & drums!

The Reason shot a music video in our store!




Summer 2011 was busy with lots of workshops with the Diana F+ and Fisheye cameras , multiple exposure lessons and Diana Mini fun !

A workshop at the TIFF Bell Lightbox got people excited about the Diana F+, Fellini and paparazzi photography !

WE GOT AIR CONDITIONING! (And had a party… Of course!)

We welcomed the Diana World Tour into the store with fun festivities…

…and then took the cameras on a bus tour for our Diana Tours the Red Carpet workshop !

We hosted the OTM Depict T.O photo exhibition

…and the launch of the LomoKino was a huge success!

WE TURNED ONE – happy birthday to us! :)

We took Family Day to another level with a Diana workshop at the McMichael Art Collection – cute kids using Lomo cameras? Adorable.

We brought a lil bling to the store with the launch of the Gold Edition cameras . Oh we fancy, huh?

Christmas came early with our Holiday Photobooth ! So. Much. Wrapping. Paper.

We took to the streets and painted the night with light and the Diana F+ .

Things got wild with a bunch of wild animals to celebrate the launch of the Animal Edition camerasRAWR!

Dreams did come true in one of our many Shoot your Dream Camera workshops .

We teamed up with St. Augustine CHS for a Diana workshop like no other!

Next, we teamed up with The Ladies Rhythm and Movement Club (LRMC) , to learn all the basics of photography while learning the ways of Lomography – analogue girl power!

To celebrate Fashion week, we held a fashion photography workshopFIERCE.

We also celebrated the launch of the Silver Lake Edition of the LC-A+ with a classy party .

We’ve been treated to many a music performances, but two very specials acts would have to be Thee Attacks and Inch Chua !

Spring sprang, so we took to the park for another fun-filled Diana F+ workshop !

We rolled out the red carpet and screened the LomoKino film “Ashes” by renowned director Apichatpong Weerasethakul and celebrated the launch of the MUBI Edition camera.

Welcome to the world Fisheye Baby 110 and Diana Baby 110 !

To the bikes! We had a wheel-y good time exploring the Distillery District with La Sardina cameras and a great group of folks.

The British invaded !

We got our panoramic on with the Horizon Kompact cameras !

Queen Elizabeth CHS came by for a Diana workshop and it was a walk in the park!

Lomography turned the big 2-0 and WE TURNED TWO ! :D

Valentines Day got romantic with our awkward couples photo contest and a smashing party together with MTV FORA and our newest Diana F+ and Diana Mini cameras – the “Love Letters” Edition.




Local artist Michael Naccarato created a very special window display for us to celebrate our beloved La Sardina!


We got silly with a bunch of super fun Lomographers on the streets of Toronto for our part in the Lomography Caterpillar .

Our LomoAmigo Marike Jager came to visit and play us some music in store.

We played host to the Cymatics exhibit by Turner Wigginton !

    Watch: 'One Day In A Lomo'Instant' Video

    A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
