Last year (2016), in preparation for my trip in May to China, I decided to analyse the photos I took on previous trips so that I can consolidate and optimise my lenses for this trip. This was quite an eye opener for me and it helped me to lighting my camera bag tremendously....
One’s pain can never be measurably compared to another’s- we have all been hurt and most of us are in dire need of a therapeutic outlet. This heartfelt realization was the basis for a trip focused on making an impact through art, in the lives of some whose glares were turned from seeing the richness around them…refugee children in Uganda.
On a recent photographic trip to Greenland. FujiFilm Switzerland loaned me the FujiFilm XT-1 and 3 lenses; XF 16-55mm/2.8; XF 50-140mm/2.8; XF 10-24mm/4.0. I was keen to test FujiFilm’s camera and lenses in the harsh Arctic conditions.
This review is based on a 11 day trip to Japan during which Fujifilm so graciously loaned me a brand new X-T2 including several lenses and the battery grip. I was touring with Shortstraw and Desmond and the Tutus to document their music tour of Japan, going through Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and a quick stop in Hong Kong.
I had the fortunate opportunity to get my hands on the newly released Fujifilm X-T2 over a weekend. I was counting down the days to get my grubby hands on this mirrorless beauty, as I stirred the thought "will this replace my aging 5D MkII". Can this little mirrorless beat out my monstrous Full-Frame goliath?
African Aerospace and Defense (AAD) comes around every 2 years and the 2016 edition took place from the 14th to the 18th of September. As in 2014 I was fortunate enough to gain press accreditation for the event thanks to the assistance of the good people at the International Society of Aviation Photography, of whom I'm a member, who kindly provided me with requisite credentials to complete my application.
