Although he’s busy finishing his GCSE’s at the moment, we managed to snag a bit of time from his frantic schedule, for us to have a little chat about this boy’s latest obsession with film photography and its unpredictable nature!

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?
I was looking to buy some film and through searching the internet this Community came up!
Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?
Um, I think I don’t look up to just one person it’s a collective of people who I can see, and are all so dedicated to film photography.
As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?
Yes I have read them! I think I do every single rule, or regularly do them!
In this digital age, why still film?
When I use film I feel like it makes the process much more exciting, and its quality are very hard to find in digital cameras! I also love the unpredictability of it and I think that’s what makes it exciting for me!
Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.
I think at the moment it is joe-graphy I like his photos so much! They seem to have loads of character in them and when I look I can see a little story in each photo which makes them really beautiful.
Newbie, rookie, neophyte or whatever you call them, our new breed of the ever-growing band of Lomographers are set to conquer the analogue land with their brand new hip-shooting abilities! And this is where we feature them along with their wistful thoughts and the freshest snaps each week!
