These Kickstarter updates are getting ever so easier to write down the more our whole Lumu Power development processes move forward. It’s only logical, the more it gets done the more we have to show you.
We talked about installing that 24/7 camera in our previous update but instead I would like to kindly invite you to follow our Instagram account (LINK) for more frequent, short & sweet updates. Since they implemented their own version of snaps in it, why not use it for our benefit?
OK, onto the details!
Hello, my name is Renato Ribeiro, I’m a Portuguese photographer based in Porto but working worldwide.
I’m passionate about life and people. For me photography is art and I bet on a new approach: simple and with love. More than faces and expressions I want to shoot feelings and emotions!
Where did you meet photography or where did photography meet you? I think it’s when I had my part time job at college, the workplace was a very beautiful little garden, people came to have a couple of cups of coffee and many photographers liked to do photo shoots there. I was attracted to the magical sound of the camera shutter so I got my first Nikon FM2.

The New Lumu app is made to be a tool that helps you do your best work. It does not want attention, it does not want to stand in the way. It is not an object of admiration. It doesn’t have a lot of features. It doesn’t need them.
It does, and it should help you do one thing really, really well.
What did you want to become in your childhood and are you that person today? I wanted to become a stuntman when I was really little, then an archaeologist when I was around 10 or 12, followed by working in advertising when I was a teenager and finally a psychologist before I finished school. In a way, being a photographer incorporates aspects of all of these jobs.
Where did you meet photography or where did photography meet you? Photography started as a creative outlet for me about 8 years ago. I didn’t plan to become a professional photographer but looking back today I wish I would have found and pursued this path earlier in my life. I feel that photography is what I am meant to do.

What did you want to become in your childhood and are you that person today? I wanted to be a taxi driver. And a bartender. And a mechanic. Pretty much your standard 80′s kid growing up with mom playing Springsteen all day long.
Where did you meet photography or where did photography meet you? 3 words: uncle, Nikon, film. I still have the camera should he ask.
Hi! My name is Caroline Sauvage. I’m 28 years old and I live in France.
What did you want to become in your childhood and are you that person today? When I was a child I wanted to become an illustrator, but also a guitarist in a rock band, a stylist, and of course a veterinary. I always liked creating things and try new mediums of creation. Unfortunately I don’t save animal’s lives today but I found the artirstic way that suits me as a photolover, and I’m loving it.
I want to apologize in advance because I’m not a very good writer and writing this was really hard for me. I’m more of a visual guy than a poet. But I’m really more than happy to get featured, so let’s begin.
My name is Valentin Zelger, I’m 25 years old and I live in Vienna, Austria. I study Photography at the Graphische in Vienna since 2015. Before that I went to Film school and worked on film sets in the light & camera department.
My name is Andrew Hutchinson, from Phoenix Arizona, where the heat comes from, and I have been photographing things my entire life. But I became more serious about it in the last five years.
Where did you meet photography or where did photography meet you? I met photography when I was born. My great uncle was a professional photographer most of his adult life, and growing up cameras were all around, and we were always taking pictures. It always shocked me when I went to my friend houses and they didn’t have 6 cameras and rolls of 35 and 120mm film, 20-30 albums full of family photos and 15 reels of Kodak 8mm film of home movies… I thought everyone’s house had those.
That’s when I began to figure out that something was slightly different about my family, and myself, in relation to cameras and photography.
