Camera AbsurdA!

Our Eternal Mission in Life

Our Eternal Mission in Life

Many of us have literally hundreds of photos on our phones and computers, that mostly sink beneath the waters of digital oblivion.

We started looking at portraits and photos from the earliest days of photography, and realised there may be something in the myth that these old cameras somehow “captured your soul.” Unsmiling yet serene faces gaze out at you from another world, timeless.

With this in mind, and our love of Dada mischief, we invented the Camera AbsurdA to create “genuine fake” photos – singular, soulful portraits you’ll want to keep and display, and freeze those special moments in time.

What Is the ‘Camera AbsurdA?’

What Is the ‘Camera AbsurdA?’

We designed and constructed a custom device to be fully portable, but drastically overestimated our own strength and fitness.

It’s ultimately a ridiculously heavy Victorian Polaroid!

However, we happily ignore the inherent risks and haul the contraption around to pop-ups in festivals, events, markets etc. We can provide 6×4 inch mounted prints in under four minutes.

Who are the Ambro Brothers?

Who are the Ambro Brothers?

We are filmmakers, photographers and writers based in London:

CLIVE HOWARD has a gold medal in lateral thinking for solving creative problems and a background in set design and commercials. He’s our ‘frontman.’

STEVE HAISMAN is the backstage technician, doggedly working to improve processes and aesthetics.

What Do We Offer?

POP-UP SESSIONS at your festival or public event. We come to your site, build an appropriate set with props, and set up the Camera AbsurdA to take instant portraits that we print and mount on the spot. This generally takes around four minutes. We take individual payments.

SPECIAL OCCASIONS – private events such as weddings, parties, etc. We build a set, take portraits or small group shots as before. Hosts pay a flat rate.

At pop-up sessions in public events, we charge £12 for a single print; £20 for two prints; £30 for three prints.

Prints may be black and white or colour. Card mounts are £1.00 extra per print. Digital downloads are free with purchase.

For private events such as weddings, we charge £15 for a single print; £30 for two; £40 for three. Mounts included, and free digital download.

If hosts would like a flat rate, payable in advance, please contact us. Pricing depends upon type of event, number of guests etc, and as a special introductory offer starts from £800.
