    Meet Mark Colman – CyborgCamp Portland’s Official Photographer 

    mark-colman-cyborgcampThe idea of photography itself is very cybernetic. Cameras help humans to extract moments and memories from one point in time and access them at another. This makes photographs veritable time machines, and photographers relative time stewards.

    A good photographer chooses settings, lighting and moments to capture, and a good camera has certain characteristics and capabilities that allow a photographer to be a better time steward. Beauty results when photographers, setting and camera operate in symbiotic harmony.

    We’re excited to announce that local photographer Mark Colman will be CyborgCamp’s official photographer! Mark is excited to help capture CyborgCamp on film, so that our memories of it will be highlighted by his own flavor of cyborg history. Mark was CyborgCamp’s official photographer in 2008 and took a bunch of really excellent pictures.

    Mark Colman is one of the friendliest people you’ll meet. Feel free to say hello to him and nerd out with him about cameras and lenses. He loves that kind of thing. He also has quite the collection of analog cameras. If you’re into photography at all, you’ll love Mark.

    With that said, we’re really excited to have him at CyborgCamp, and hope you all are too! Thanks Mark!
