Then, now, and forever, photography is the improbable scientific capture of light onto cellulose or into pixel values, a technical endeavor that requires exactitude on the part of the photographer. Measuring, bouncing, reflecting, shading: all precision activities that are part of a photographer's arsenal.
But sometimes, you just want to get a little loose.
No matter how carefully planned a Lomo photograph might be, the following could occur: light leaks. Stray starbursts. Glowing ghosts, floating breezily through the background. Have we mentioned how charmed we are?
Lomography, the international headquarters for analogue photography, embraces the unexpected, the joyful jolt you get when your photograph develops into a bold, saturated surprise. Lomo's commitment to film means that you'll never know exactly what you shot until you process the photograph; creative experimentation is all the fun.

So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
