Daniel’s favourite photograph

My favourite photograph is of my two favourite people; my partner Laura and our son Stanley. I took it in October this year shortly after we arrived back in England having spent the last two years living in Singapore. Having lived practically smack bang on the equator, we were looking forward to some cold weather, and we were determined to enjoy the miserable North-East English outdoors no matter what! It was freeeeeeezing on the beach at Withernsea and we were the only people stupid enough to go near the sea that day, but it was still fun!

How long I’ve been a Lomographer:
About 18 months. I bought a Holga 120cfn, which I was immediately hooked on, followed by the Lomo L-CA+ and more recently a Nikon 35ti. The Lomo L-CA+ is my favourite camera of any I’ve owned or used. I try to take it everywhere I go.

Favourite Camera/Film/Accessory Combination:
At the moment I like my L-CA+ loaded with Lomography Xpro Chrome, my Holga loaded with Kodak 100 T-MAX, and my Nikon seems to favour Ilford B&W Delta Professional 400. I also love the Instant Polaroid Back for the L-CA+ it’s blooming marvellous…

My Gallery

In my own words….
From as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with pictures. I’m a compulsive doodler, I like to draw and paint; I love illustration and graphic design and of course; photography. My first (proper) job was at a commercial studio, when I was 17, which is where I became aware of all the different types of cameras, film formats and processes.
I remember waiting at the lab for films to dry and I would over hear conversations about how digital photography was going to take over, which it eventually did in many respects.
I rediscovered the joys of film after stumbling across some photographs on a graphic design networking website that had been taken with a Holga. I was drawn in by the vintage feel, and immediately knew I had to get one! As soon as I clicked onto the Lomography website to make my purchase my eyes were opened up to a whole world of other cameras, films, techniques and talented lomographers.
I love the idea behind Lomography and everything it stands for. The unexpected colour shifts, blurry, unpredictable double exposures and light leaks are what keeps me addicted to the excitement of getting a film back from the lab. Digital and HDR photography has it’s place, but there is so much more soul and personality in the beautiful imperfections of all things analogue.

There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
