My father is a photographer, so growing up I was always around cameras. My grandmother gave me my first camera and I started shooting B/W a lot in high school.
When I was 19 I travelled to Stockholm, Sweden where my father lives and took my first official photography course. When I came back I had discovered Lomography and bought my first Lomo Smena Symbol. I've been shooting with it ever since. I take it everywhere with me, and I've saved such beautiful memories with it.
I'm not the type of photographer that uses up a whole roll of film in one day. I take a photo when I feel inspired by something, and I found this method to be very rewarding.
