Unlike snap shots, what other things do you do for Lomo?

I worked as a volunteer for Lomo such as work on editorial with magazines, set up exhibition and other events.

How is the atmosphere about Lomo in Hong Kong?

Local Lomo lovers are not active enough to join the Lomo contest or communities. In Taiwan, it had pretty good participation rate. Also in Japan. Hong Kong Lomo lovers are too passive sharing. They are too shy and afraid to face any comments.

What would you do with Lomo in recent future?

I am planning to publish a magazine with Lomo photos to introduce Lomo from a photographer’s point of view. Keep taking pictures and hope more people will join the Lomo community.

Do you think taking snaps with Lomo is just a trend in Hong Kong?

I don’t think Lomo is a trend. It will last forever.

Does anybody supporting what you do with Lomo?

All the Lomo staff. They are really into their job and love their job very much!

Any suggestion or advice for Lomo players?

It always surprise you when you saw the photos.
No need to care about what other people think.

Don’t be afraid to share.
Great experience when teaching people to use Lomo.
