Tell the community a little bit about yourself? What do you do for fun and is it the same thing you do for a living?
I am an independent musician and I spend most of my time working on music. Fun and work are really close. I produce music for the media (TV – Radio – Cinema) as my main work and I compose music, perform live and record records for my personal projects.
How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing)?
I wouldn’t call my self a lomographer. I made some efforts in the past not so successful I might say, but I’m getting there!
How did you like shooting with the Fisheye No. 2 and what were people´s reactions to the camera?
I believe the Fisheye 2 camera is very popular by now, therefore the reactions are not so strange. I on the other hand find it very amusing shooting with that perspective..it really gets everything “in”.
The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/ Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
Imagine an entire film with the lens covered..but I’m not the only one!
Describe the Fisheye No. 2 in five words.
Funny, Small, Light, Fish, Eye
If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your Fisheye 2, who would it be and why?
I would take a nice picture of Fisheye 1…past but not forgotten!
What’s your favorite photo you took with the Fisheye 2 and why?
I still don’t have a favorite photo but when I do I’ll let you Know.
If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
Big Love “Fleetwood Mac”
All She Wants Is “Duran Duran”
Modern Guilt “Beck”
What got you into photography at the first place?
My dear friend Denise… It’s hard not to be a photographer near her!
