About the Fujifilm X- system, Johann says “I initially bought into the Fujifilm X system in order to travel light, but soon found out that the ergonomics of these cameras far surpasses the traditional DLSR setup, and the image quality of the Fujifilm cameras definitely out perform the competition by far.  I just did not want to use anything else anymore.  The Fujifilm system is a love affair!”

Life as it happens holds the most promise. To capture it naturally, I use the light I have available and use it to my advantage. To capture those moments and emotions, you need to look ahead at what will happen before it happens. This is what I try to achieve with my photography. Capture moments without interfering.

In this world of instant gratification, photography has to find its place. I believe that it can still be a form of art in its very own right and not disappear in this world of snapshots and selfies. The Fujifilm gear has allowed me to grow this belief and create the art that photography offers.

Being a bit of a gadget geek, I love playing around with any new gear Fuji brings out. I test it out, see what it can do and write reviews about my experiences on my site. This allows me to experiment with gear that wouldn’t normally fall in my genre of photography, broaden my horizons and introduces me to options I wouldn’t have otherwise considered.

In 2001, Africa became the new chapter in my life. The sheer size and magnitude of the African continent was overwhelming. I traveled the forests of Bwindi to the peaks of Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya, to the shores of Lake Malawi and the red Desert Landscape of the Kalahari. Wildlife photography has become more than a passion, it has become my life. A life I am very proud of and one that I wish to share with everyone.
