Lately I have been doing some work experience as a video analyst for the Australian Women's hockey team The Hockeyroos. I was asked to join them on their first training camp of the year to video their trial matches and then analyse the game for the coaches to use as training guides. It was a heap of fun especially since I was able to bang a test roll of Kodak Elitechrome 200 into my new LC-A!
Perched high above the ground in a little tower that tends to cop the full brunt of Perth’s famous Fremantle Doctor (the sea breeze that kicks in everyday in summer – a wind and kite surfers paradise!) we captured a week-long series of trial matches to determine the new Australian Team for 2011.
With a new coach at the helm, the 60 girls invited to the camp were out to impress and the on-field battles left nothing to the faint of heart.
The only problem that I had up in my little bird’s nest was not being able to concentrate on filming the games when the sun started to dip behind the horizon and the sky lit up with amazing colours. Luckily I was able to sneak away from my duties for a couple of seconds to snap a cool sunset!
I’m just hoping that I did a good job and they want to take me around the world!

As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports. It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!
As the world grieves the death of prolific actor and comedian Robin Williams, photographer Daniel Sorine reveals a number of photographs taken in 1974, showing a pair of mimes hamming it up for the camera. One of them was Williams - only, Sorine was only able to realize this fact more than three decades later.
A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to participate in a three-day cyanotype workshop organized by the UP Iris, the university-wide student organization of the University of the Philippines. Here's a step-by-step guide to making your very own cyanotype print!
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
