Hi! I’m Loren. I make things – music, drawings, and photos, mostly.

What you’ll see here on my site is a big mess of psychedelic film photography, digital photography, toy camera shenanigans, drawings that you’ll probably find equal parts cute and creepy, and a whole lot of me blogging about being in a DIY indie/punk band. Music fandom, art geekery, community building, hot beverage obsession, lots of feelings, and my general day-to-day are all fair game.

On a more technical level, I shoot with the following cameras: Canon FTb, Minolta Maxxum 7000, Mamiya 645 for medium-format SLR, Nikon D5500 for DSLR, and a slew of weird and/or toy cameras (Holga 120, Lomo LC-A+, and Argus C3, to name a few).

Don’t even get me started about my music gear. (Four hours later…)

In case you were wondering (and you’ve made it this far): vegan, morning and dog person, and INFJ, if you’re into that kind of thing.
