Victor Koroma is based in Los Angeles and considers himself a mixed media photographer that thinks like a painter. His work aims to find the beauty in everyday recognizable objects. Transforming them beyond their banality into objects of desire that encourage you to think of them in new ways.

Mixed media photography. Contemporary pop. It blurs the boundary of what photography is by mixing it with other mediums. Utilizing elements of paintings, illustrations, and photography. He started hovering around the photo industry when Hearst Magazine International reached out to him with a request from Esquire Ru to published some photographs in print from one of his series on one of their issues. But overall, he would say that at times, he thinks he was genetically born with an eye for photography that skateboarding, art school, and working have helped him develop.

Q&A with Victor Koroma

Q: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?

VK: Minimal. Organized. Clean.

Q: How often do you typically update your website?

VK: Though my eyes aggressively tend to comb over it weekly in attempt to spot any aspects I find annoying or irritating that I want to adjust there’s not a specific time frame I have. Apart from that I normally only make updates on either two occasions. One. I have brought a new series to fruition which i would like to share. Two. A new piece of information presents itself that needs to be either added or corrected in some fashion.

Q: How do you choose the photos that you display on your homepage?

VK: This was a head ache inducing issue I thought about for sometime actually. I approached the design of my homepage by placing myself in the perspective of the person viewing it. I asked myself, what images would entice a viewer to spend more time on my website? What images would best represent my work and communicate my overall vision? The images on my site currently answer those questions. Whenever I come across new images that are more of a representation of that vision, i replace them. In totality, the images on my homepage are a means to the end of alluring.

Q: What is your favorite feature of liveBooks8?

VK: I mostly enjoy the amount of control I have with the seemingly endless customization tools.

What Jed Tomsula loves most about photography is the idea of capturing and recording a moment in time, a moment of reality.  He first picked up his parents Canon AE-1 around the age of twelve and began with taking photographs of family; Jed remembers looking at his grandparents through the lens of a camera and concentrating on the image.

“I wanted to record that exact moment in time and  permanently document that memory.  A passion was awakened,” Jed recalls. He is a photographer that loves to document and explore, as such his interest in street photography has remained a vital part of his portfolio. He loves roaming the streets with camera in hand. 

Four years ago he suffered a debilitating back injury resulting in a fusion in his lower spine. He says, “It was torturous not being able to shoot those first few months while I slowly worked on my recovery. I reside in the suburbs of San Francisco and I can remember at month three after my operation riding the subway to the busy city center at Powell and Market Streets and sitting on a fire hydrant (as my legs were still weak) and photographing passengers on the city’s busy bus network. I did this weekly for two months and gathered some terrific images of people going about their busy lives. It felt so good to be back out as an active participant in the world and creating!”  Jed is in the process of putting a book together of those images titled, “The Passengers.” 

Q&A with Jed Tomsula

Q: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?

Jed: Real, vivid, decisive.

Q: How do you choose the photo’s you display on your homepage?

Jed: Good question, in years past I would often over think and over obsess as to what images to display on my homepage; now as i’ve matured and grown more confident in my work I simply go with my gut.

Q:  What is your favorite feature of liveBooks8?

My favorite feature of liveBooks8 is the ability to customize each individual page within my website and to preview any changes prior to publishing.

Q:  What’s one piece of advice you’d offer someone designing their website?

Jed: Take advantage of the “getting started” video tutorial and don’t be bashful about asking questions.  The staff at liveBooks is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to assisting it’s clients questions or concerns.
