Geeks of the world, unite! Whoever said that being a geek is uncool must be living under the rock for quite some time now. If they need any more convincing, then direct them here so that they can take a cue from you and our three rumble winners!
Glasses or bowties do not make a geek, but for quite some time now it’s become a “cool factor” to assume the stereotypical awkward geek pose, and even those with 20/20 vision have decided to put on those black-rimmed glasses a la Buddy Holly. Okay, stop rolling your eyes now, and just celebrate the awesomeness of the geek “look” – have a look at our winning photos! (10 Piggies for each winner)
For our winners, please head on to our new Member’s Benefits FAQ section for queries on Piggy Points and further information. Congratulations and thank you for continuously supporting our rumbles!
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but whoever said that must have never shot with a Konica C35. This 46-year-old beauty can definitely hang with the big boys. Come see why this camera is one of my favorites, and why it should be one of yours, too.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
