The Second Stage of our Rip Curl Competition is finally over and we've got the winners right here! Don't get too cocky though, as we still have our Third and final Stage before Rip Curl gives away their insane prizes!
Do you guys go looking for trouble or does it find you? That was the theme of the 2nd Stage of our Rip Curl Competition where we received well over 1700 bad-ass submissions. How bad ass you say? Well, you’ll just have to look at the winners that Rip Curl picked out! They’ve certainly imbibed the carefree, laid-back lifestyle that Rip Curl is known for.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Simeon Smith is a musician who recorded the sounds of our film cameras in action and made these samples available as a free download. We couldn't resist interviewing him about this project and taking a look at some of his photos. Meet the man behind the cams here.
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
