We first met model and TV Presenter Zara Martin back in 2010, when she shared her Diana instant photos as our LomoAmigo. We caught up with her busy life again (she squeezed us in in between hanging out with Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld!) to take a look at what she's been shooting on film recently!
NAME: Zara Martin
Hey Zara, hows tricks?
Tricks are good! (I think. Is that how you answer that question?)
What have you been up to since we last saw you?
Well, it’s been a while so a whole lot! Still doing the presenting/djing/modelling thing…
It’s been almost a year and a half since your previous LomoAmigo feature! What have been your top highlights in that time?
I feel like this whole year has been one big highlight! I’ve signed to STORM (dream), flown around the world and met some of my all time favourite fashion designers like Donatella Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Julien Macdonald and had the honour of wearing their clothing.
Where have you been with your Diana F+?
I take Diana a lot of places, I’m a geek like that. Most recently we were in Venice together, and she was around my neck pretty much the whole time. It was romantic.
You’ve been photographed for some of the greatest fashion labels in the world, but how would you define your personal style?
You’ve recently designed your own line for ethical accessories label Made. What was your inspiration?
Music – it plays such an integral role in my life. My initial sketches for the collection were actually based off some Lomo photographs that I took in a guitar shop.

What’s coming up next in your world?
I’m hosting on the main stage at The Clothes Show Live this year and I have a super exciting TV project coming out soon but that’s about as much as I can say about it for now!
But I can say, I’ll be taking my camera with me…
The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.
