LomoRoadshow Brighton: Give us your suggestions!

6

You are always asking us to come to your town, so we are! The first stop for the LomoRoadshow will be Brighton, and we need your help to plan it!

Here in London we run tons of Lomography workshops – from camera speed dating to trips on a routemaster bus, and they are always fully booked. However, we know we have lots of brilliant and active Lomographers across the country, and we want to get you involved!

In 2011 we will be holding the LomoRoadshow, a tour of your towns – we’ll bring you workshops, cameras, some special goodies, and our Lomographic expertise. You asked for us to come to you, and here we come!

So Brighton peeps, we’re coming to your manor on Saturday 16th April. What shall we do? Where shall we go? The workshop will be three hours, and will work like this…

1. We will give a presentation in a venue – could be an arts centre, could be a college or university, could be a pub!
2. we will take a Lomowalk through the streets and shoot as we go
3. we will do some kind of activity together – maybe minigolf? maybe go to a drag show? you decide!

So, in the comments below, please give suggestions. Do you go to college there? Could you help swing us a room? Or did you go to an awesome place that would be great to photograph? What are your favourite things to do under a tenner?

Once we have the plan all firmed up tickets will go on sale – your ticket will include lend-a-camera, film, and all of the activities. Just tell us what you want to do!

    I was there two years ago, it's a magic place, great for a lomo venue!!! My suggestion is, talk to the town hall so they let you take photographs of the inside of the Royal pavilion... it's an amazing place but photography isn't allowed... maybe you could persuade them to let a group of lomographers with their cameras (without flash)...

    For a venue, there is a great cafe called 'Add the Colour' they are very very photography friendly, holding workshops, talks etc for photographers. It would make a great venue for the lomoRoadshow in Brighton. Talk to Dan the owner there.

    I live in Brighton and as any photographer here knows, the ruins west pier is a regular in front of the lens but I would suggest taking a walk along the sea front. There's a western style childrens rail road running along the pebbles near concorde 2 (which would also be a good venue to use).
    Of course the infamous Brighton Lanes are always good as well if your the sort of person who clicks while pointing at buskers, side alleys and thrift stores. I can't wait for the roadshow guys, see you soon x

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
