As part of the Lomoroadshow that has been touring the UK, I got to spend a day in Manchester with the Lomo Mum’s and some new Lomo friends.
Manchester is one of the biggest cities in the north of England and as a resident of Leeds, I always find it interesting to see how the two cities compare.
As part of the Lomography Lomowalk around the city I saw many parts of the city that I hadn’t truly looked at before and it was fun to look at the city through the eyes of my (borrowed) LC-A.
It was great getting to meet people that I’ve talked to on Twitter and through my blog and also so fun meeting new people as well. I spent most of the time watching other people take photos. I always love watching how others see things and it was great to be walking along and have other people just stop next to me as they caught something that they wanted to photograph.
The LC-A has an understated excellence to it and I can imagine with more use I would learn more about its individual charms and I can start to see why people love this camera so much. This camera is definitely going on my Christmas list (and I’m pretty sure it will be worth the rather hefty price tag too) and it was a perfect companion for my little Manchester Urban Adventure.
With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer, it's a perfect time to bring out your Lomo LC-Wide for those road trips with friends, adventures at the skate park, and lazy picnics at the park! Those spring scenes are bursting with warm light and captivating colors, the perfect subject for this versatile 35mm camera. Check out some of our favourite spring-themed community shots taken with the Lomo LC-Wide!
Jack Lowe has been traveling round the UK with the aim to shoot every RNLI post using Wet Plate Collodion photography. The Lifeboat Station Project photography is a five-year photographic mission that makes use of a painstaking process. It is a fascinating, much talked about project that deserves to be documented, not just through words but through images as well.

Alternative folk act Bear's Den is set to embark on a UK tour to promote the album "Islands," which was released in October 2014. But before going on tour, the British trio, composed of Andrew Davie (vocals, guitar), Kevin Jones (vocals, drums) and Joey Haynes (vocals, banjo), captured some of their summer memories on film with the Sprocket Rocket.
We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
Faith Holgate, Lois McDonald, Anna Donigan and Sophie Galpin make up PINS, a Manchester-based band that has released two albums and crafted a unique, raw and confident sound. The band is signed to Bella Union, run by ex Cocteau Twins member Simon Raymonde and have been documenting their rock'n'roll life with the La Sardina camera.
Kamila K Stanley is always on the cusp of an adventure. In the early part of 2015, she started inviting fellow photographers to join a collective named after a verse from "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." And ever the curious observer, she spent some part of the year in Turkey. With a camera and reserve of 35mm films, of course.
It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
