Aside from browsing through beautiful photographs and reading interesting articles, hanging out in the shoutbox is another worthwhile activity to do in the community. Not only will you get updated on the latest in photography, you’ll also have a chance to share ideas, tips, and stories with fellow shutterbugs across the globe. The shoutbox is always brimming with entertaining conversation and it's all because of these Lomographers.
What started off as a way to travel around the world became a passion project and a way to connect with people. Vancouver based photographer Aida Castelo used to take Instant shots of people to finance his trips.

The arts have always been a way for Laetitia Mangala Instant to express herself but with the Lomo' Instant Wide, she took her work a notch further by focusing on women and their inner self.

Lomographer Flavia a.k.a. flaviaslick is unapologetic with her experimental analogue outbursts -- overloaded with passion and need to shoot with film, she always #ChooseToChallenge. Her LomoHome is becoming one of our favorite hangouts just to see what she's up to next!
Disposable cameras, Instant film, and large format, Jason Kummerfeldt's tried it all on his Youtube channel Grainydays. A few years ago, he never thought we would shoot large format because of its imposing volume and size. But he eventually caved in, and after years of research for the perfect gear, made the leap into the world of large format!
When two fellow Lomographers come together for some shoots, the result is always breathtaking. Lauren Ruth Ward and Angela Izzo's shots of each other on the La Sardina, Diana, and Lomo Instant Wide perfectly reflect their signature style, romantic and psychedelic like their own personalities.
