5 Questions on Analogue Photography with 007-0815-Styler

4

In our new ongoing series "5 Questions on Analogue Photography with…" we send out the same set of questions to photographers. This time David Wilms better known as 007-0815-Styler answered these questions and prepared a stylish gallery for us.

Name: Styler aka 007-0815-Styler
Occupation: Photographer
Country: Germany

1. Tell us about yourself in three sentences maximum?
I am 007-0815-Styler, nickname Styler, birth name David Wilms. I work as a fashion photographer, mainly in Middle Europe / Germany. Styler has no criminal record.

Stylish!

2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
Shooting analogue is a good balance to Styler’s every day work life, where I’m shooting digital. Fashion photography is a life in the fast lane and Lomography gives me an alternative to calm down and make photos the traditional way, without zooming in 300% a second after the shoot, or retouching it. You have to wait for the films to come out of the lab before you can see them. So every developed film is like a little gift to myself.

3. What photographic equipment (cameras, films, and accessories) do you usually have in your bag?
Depends on where I am going. On a sunny day almost every lomo cam is Styler’s buddy, but if the sun is gone I need a cam with a good flash. Right now Styler’s favorite cam is the La Sardina. I love the style of the cam – the results & the flash of this little sardine can – but I also love my LC-A+, Fisheye, Sprocket Rocket and my middle format Diana’s & Holga’s. Mostly I cross all my films. My favorite films are Kodak Ektachrome, Fuji Sensia and in former times it was the Agfa RSX II and for sure I love those Lomography Redscale films but they are really dirty films with a lot of scratches and imperfections. :)

4. Share a trick of yours that will always result to a great photo.
A trick?¿, “Don’t think, just shoot” is a good start, it is also important to have enough light for those lomo products, but that’s not a trick. A good trick is, if you made a shot and you think, that wasn’t a good one, something went wrong, just reshoot, make a double exposure, that often helps.

5. What photographers influence your work?
That’s hard to say, but Styler is a big fan of Terry Richardson, Nobuyoshi Araki, David La Chapelle, Estevan Oriol and Peter Lindbergh, but I’m not sure how these people influences my work. I guess Styler gets a lot of influence from his surroundings. I mean friends, artists, music, movies and events.

Thanks to Styler for taking the time to answer our questions. Check out more of his work in his LomoHome, on his website or blog.
