Greek LomoAmigo Sillyboy on MTV

2012-02-22

A vintage pop musician and budding lomographer, our LomoAmigo Sillyboy from Athens, Greece has recently been featured in MTV! Watch his interview after the jump!

Sillyboy

An independent musician, Sillyboy (also known as Charalambos Kourtaras in real life), spends most of his time working on his music; producing music for tv, radio, and cinema since his main work is to compose music, perform live, and do recordings for his personal projects.

While he’s still a bit hesitant to call himself a “lomographer”, Sillyboy is slowly but surely, working his way to improve on his craft. He enjoys taking snaps with the Fisheye No. 2, which he finds very amusing…“as it really gets everything ‘in’,” he says, and credits his pal Denise for getting him into photography.

As for his advice for would-be lomographers – or at least Fisheye No. 2 shooters? “Always uncover your lens..and the rest will follow.”

A few of his snapshots using the Fisheye No.2

You may find more information on Sillyboy on his Facebook Page or read his full LomoAmigo feature

Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.
