We call it the #ICMEETSERIES and thought it would be interesting to find out a bit more about the people behind the disposables. We asked a few IC contributors to tell us a bit about themselves and this is what we got in return…
IC MEET SERIES – Q+A with…
Samantha Snitzer – Los Angeles, CA. USA
What do you do for a crust?
Loving this term crust. I’m a story producer for the glorious world of reality television.
Can you tell us about your creative background?
For so long I felt like there was so much creativity in me that was itching to get out. For so long I thought maybe I was only a patron of the arts.. Until I found photography.
What inspires you to shoot film?
E v e r y t h i n g. Nature, people I love, strangers, music, colors, architecture, etc.
How did you come to connect with Indisposable Concept?
Do you remember what was in the first roll of film you shot for IC?
Unfortunately, I don’t. But I’m sure it had something to do with this girl and an adventure we went on.
What is your fav photo that you’ve shot for IC? Tell us a bit about it.
There is a photo I shot in Venice at the skatepark that will always be one of my favorites.
It seems film photography and disposables are making a comeback, why do you think that is?
Everything seems to always come back around. Record players, bell bottoms, people love vintage. Also, the look of film seems to be trendy right now and shooting on a disposable is cheaper for most then buying a 35mm body + lenses.
If someone destroyed all the disposable cameras in the world and you had the very last one, what would you capture?
The people I love the most.
What does 2016 hold for you?
Hopefully lots of changes. They’ve already begun.
Explain your style/approach when shooting a roll.
It’s constantly evolving.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Landscape/travel/lifestyle + whatever the eff captures my eye.
Who or what influences you creatively?
Music. Other photographers. Art. Being in nature. Roaming my city.
Where do you find inspiration?
Same as above + the people who encourage me.
Fave place to shoot?
Hmmm. I equally love shooting around LA as I do on any trip I get to take. I love shooting out in nature just as much as I do in the city.
