Hello Lomographers! Today’s installment of Staff Picks involves someone you may have run into a couple of times in the USA during Lomography events. Meet Cameron Russell from Lomo USA!
Name: Cameron Russell
What you do at Lomography: Territory Manager for the Central South/South East. I over see our operations from Colorado to Florida. From collaborations, music festivals, and exhibits to the Lomography Gallery Store in Austin, TX. I help get the word out about Lomography.
Interests: Travel. Food Tourism. No matter where I am, I’m always seeking out a new place to eat and amaze myself. I used to watch a lot more movies, before I got into Lomography. I watched about 2,300 from when I was 22-25. Connecting with my friends and spending quality time on porches.
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers? The LC-A+.
Why? So many reasons jumble at the front of my mind as I start to write this. I’ve used it for over three years at it has become muscle memory, to me. I never question it and it never leaves my side. Reliable, hand and pocket friendly. Sturdy and discreet. It is my main camera, and, about 2 years ago, I got a pretty large tattoo of the camera on my arm. This camera really showed me that I was a photographer, when I had no clue.
Photo: Self Portrait done with LC-A+ and Fuji Astia 100.
Your message to Lomographers: Every picture you take is a lesson learned. Always try and take the shot. When you have a doubt, ignore it and see what happens. I am surprised more often than disappointed. Also, when in doubt, cross process.
There you have it, folks. Heed the words of someone who shows so much dedication to Lomography that he got his favorite camera tattooed on his arm. Maybe some of you still haven’t found your main camera, so why don’t you browse the Online Shop? Who knows, maybe the next camera you get your hands on will be the one to show you how much talent you’ve got hidden in there!
