If you were wondering who’s that pretty blonde girl graciously posing with the POMPIDOO Geneva camera in different parts of the world on our Instagram account, it’s time to get to know Ayesha. Together with Gavin they stand behind the project called LENSES&LOCALS.
The POMPIDOO team is here to present you a top list of our favourite fashionista-photographers around the globe – the ladies that touched our hearts not only with picturesque shots, but also with their in-and-out beauty and sense of style. We admire uniqueness and creativity of each of them, hence the sequence of the top list can be disregarded.
Margaret Zhang – a virtuoso of contrasts.

“The camera is a continuation of my hand. Taking pictures is a way of life and a good type of drug”, says Vika Anisko, a young and talented photographer residing between Riga and London. Her shots are strong and full of contrast, impact and emotion. The POMPIDOO Team couldn’t miss a chance to meet Vika and share her story and a great deal of energy on our blog.
It’s that time of year again… you’re thinking about the ideal gift to put a smile on the face of that special someone on Christmas morning, right?
We’ve learned about Stylonylon blog and its founder Julia Rebaudo back in 2013 and stayed in touch ever since. A freelance journalist turned blogger, photographer and sometimes stylist and consultant, Julia has written for a wide range of print and online publications including Elle, Time Out and The Guardian. Totally obsessed with digital publishing and creating beautiful imagery, Julia is a UK ambassador for Olympus and shoot on the Olympus Pen E-P5 and Pen E-PL7 with 17mm & 45mm lenses, that why we were totally excited about her recent review of the POMPIDOO Lima bag. Read an exclusive interview with Julia on the POMPIDOO Blog.
The POMPIDOO team is excited to share a recent interview we gave to “Digital Camera Bags HQ” together with behind the scenes images of the bags in process. To really know how a brand evolves and the challenges a start-up company can face, stay focused as we share what it’s like to grow as a start-up, camera bag brand.
Five years ago, forward-thinking Irina Kuzmina came up with the idea to create a range of stylish camera bags for men and women. While she was optimistic that she’d spotted a niche in the market, even Irina couldn’t have predicted just how globetrotting POMPIDOO bags would become over the next five years – they’ve now made it to 29 countries and we’re sure they have many more travels ahead of them in the future!
Here, we take the chance to get to know Irina a little better, and find out what makes her and the POMPIDOO team tick.
“My job is to inspire people; that’s why I teach photography as a language, or as a story”, says Alfie, as we talk about his move to Tokyo 8 years ago, his students, and his aspirations. Alfie’s calm and confident manner puts us at ease as we sip green tea in a beautiful gallery.
It seems that our stylish POMPIDOO camera bags are becoming quite the globetrotters! They’re now living in 29 countries all over the world – and we’re sure that their travels won’t stop there!
Of course, we’ve come to realise that not everyone in the world is searching for their next “stylish camera bag” in English, so we thought we’d have a bit of fun and see what these three little words look like in some of the world’s major languages.
We met Bellamy during the Opening Event of the Latvian Design and Art Week in Tokyo. It was easy to spot him – if you read his JCH blog, you won’t have any trouble recognising the man with the tranquil gaze and amiable smile. We met again to talk about film, camera hunts and Japan.
If you’re wondering whether Tokyo lives up to its reputation, it does – and then some! Not that we ever doubted that for a second! We’ve had the most amazing week and we’re just dying to share it with all of you!
Brendan Ó Sé is an award-winning fine art photographer/iPhoneographer from Cork, Ireland. He won the Mira Mobile Photography Prize and has exhibited both his DSLR and iPhone images in Dublin, Miami and Porto. Brendan is part of the current Apple World Gallery of images shot on an iPhone.
Using either the iPhone or a DSLR, he tries to see and create in unusual ways and this results in some unique imagery and striking street photography. We’ve got a great chance to interview Brendan in our traditional Personality section on the POMPIDOO blog!
It’s true! The POMPIDOO team has been invited to take part in the Latvian Design Days Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan – and we simply couldn’t turn down an exciting invitation like that! Organised by the Latvian Embassy in Japan, in association with Athalie Gallery, this event is not to be missed.
When one of the biggest Latvian business newspapers invited us to do an interview and asked a lot of questions about the past, present and future, we suddenly realised that we’re about to turn five years old!
Read the tastiest excerpts from an interview with POMPIDOO Founder Irina Kuzmina.
He is a public person. Never stands still, always creative and showing new sides of his personality. We know Andris Rubins as a Managing Director of the DDB Latvia, a local branch of the renowned international advertising agency. It’s fantastic that this time we can introduce him as a photographer with a keen eye on the beauty of Latvian nature.
A beautiful lady won a beautiful bag – isn’t that lovely? We’re glad to have an opportunity to interview Marilena Leta from Sicily, the winner of the POMPIDOO Valentine’s Day giveaway, and to showcase some of her amazing pictures naturally charged with sun, love and life!
Wow, what a crazy few weeks it’s been! We just got back from Frankfurt and then it was off to Milan for the Lineapelle Trade Fair! We adore visiting Milan, the capital of fashion and all things stylish. The whole city is just a non-stop treat for the eyes!
in Frankfurt for making us feel so welcome!
Last weekend, we hit the road again – this time to the charming city of Frankfurt. And, as usual, we had an amazing time! So, first of all, huge thanks to the good people at Ambiente Design Trade Fair.
Irina Kuzmina, the founder of POMPIDOO, was asked to provide her comments on the entrepreneurial environment in Latvia, and to give some tips on how to assess the size of the start-up capital required for a new business.
So, Santa’s been good to you! You’ve got your cool new camera and you couldn’t be happier with it. But, you know, every fab camera deserves a stylish camera bag…
