We have been anticipating the start of the biggest rumble in our Community, the LC-Wide Race! But before we raise those flags and run, we have to introduce to you our racers first!
For starters, we’re presenting you five Lomographers from Team North America I. You may or may not know them but it’s always great to be familiar with fellow film photographers in this Community of ours. Come and meet them!
1. Jean Baptiste Saint-Pol or jeabzz
Coming from New York, jeabzz or JB is no stranger to most of us. He discovered Lomography through a book entitled “The World Through A Plastic Lens” around six years ago. Then based in Paris, JB now lives in NYC with his wife. He is currently a sound designer for video games and is absolutely hooked to Lomography!
2. Gavin Thomas or fotoglove
Also from New York, Gavin Thomas works as a celebrity photographer who “makes bold images with a sense of purpose and style.” Gavin, aside from living the analogue life has photographed artists such as 50 Cent, T.I., Christina Milian, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Kid Sister, and Wale. Talk about LomoCelebs!
3. Deborah Nana or itsdebraanne
Now we meet Deborah Nana from Florida. She exclaims her love film cameras by describing them as “sexy, little mystery boxes that know my weakness for fine grains and vignettes.” A shout-out for the LC-Wide Race from Deborah? "I can’t wait to join forces with my team (chants — “USA! USA!”) and just have fun!
4. Erin Woodgate or erinwoodgatesphotography
And here we have Erin Woodgate, an Aussie Girl living in what she calls “Little London” which is Canada.

She adds, “I have always been into photography and I work as a portrait photographer taking photos of babies first steps and furry friends.”
5. Brianna Soriano or kiteflyin
And last but definitely not the least, here is Brianna Soriano who admits that she is “so bad at these bio profile things” but still prepared a small introduction for us all. “My name is Brianna aka kiteflyin. I got my first film camera, a Diana F+ in 2010 and have recently moved to Athens for school at the University of Georgia.” Brianna is currently a Film Studies major who likes cats, writing, and watching films!
