Pretty amazing what a commitee of young and highly motivated dreamers can get going! Festivelo took place first time in Lausanne, Switzerland and by rating its success there will probably be a 2018 edition...
I had the pleasure to be there as photographer, nice to capture so much good mood and exchange of souvenirs... Light however was not present in abundance, and I was glad to have my brand new Rotolight NEO2 LED flash handy, which made a whole difference! Had the flash mounted on a Gorillapod in one hand, shooting with the other. Quite run-and-gun style and very efficient when moving around a lot.
