Even though everyone is saying that this camera is the exact same as the Panasonic ZS10, who doesn’t like that little red logo on their camera? We aren’t camera snobs, we own a few, but we don’t go bugged out over a camera, but we have the original Leica digital camera, and its like Terry Richardson circa 1998. Its awesome. So anytime we see anything like this new Leica, this V-Lux 30 in this case, we get excited.
V-Lux 30, a 15.1 megapixel compact digital camera. In comparison to the V-Lux 20, the new camera has a 16x zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with an extended range of focal lengths, a new LCD touch screen display, integrated GPS function and video recording in 1080i-AVCHD Full HD. The Leica V-Lux 30 will be available from Leica dealers beginning June 2011, making for an ideal summer companion.

Where do you live?
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
What do you take pictures of?
It started out as documenting my life, so i began (and still do) with taking photos of my friends. I still mostly only shoot people, but now im starting to work with more and more models.
What kind of camera do you use?
I almost only shoot film… I have point and shoots on me at all times (these vary, cheap models) then i use my Olympus om2n, and my Bronica SQAI. I also just recently bought a digital camera, and i got the Canon 5d mark2
Are you formally trained in photography?
No i am self taught. However i am finishing up my third year of college in Illustration and Design. So that has helped with creating images.
What are your influences?
I try not to let one thing influence me too much. I much prefer to get influenced by many things and merge it all together to create my work. Films are also a huge influence. Some films are just breathtaking, the photography can be beautiful. And i love directors that use long takes.
Traditional arts have a huge influence on me as well, such as paintings and sculpture. I like to get influenced by colors in paintings. Some names in photography that have influenced me lately: Mario Testino, juergen teller, Cass Bird, Harley Weir, Terry Richardson, and Viktor Vauhtier.
Also, all my close friends are artists or related to the fashion industry and we party lots together, so that whole vibe is great to run off of.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
New York City!
What makes you happy?
My friends, Sketching and painting, and music keeps me going.
