X-Pro2 Hand Grip Obsessing

X-Pro2 Hand Grips: Left Meike, Right Powerextra Several weeks ago I added a grip to the diminutive X-T20. I liked the improved handling so much I thought I'd add a grip to my new (used) X-Pro2. However, as with the X-T20 grip, I could not justify...

Winter is Coming

I missed the transition from summer to fall this year.  I’m not sure how, but one day it was oppressively hot and the next day it wasn’t.  My September was busy, including a trip to Europe to teach a workshop in Amsterdam and to shoot...

5 Reasons I Bought a Fujifilm X-Pro2

For a year and a half I've been semi-interested in the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I'd watch Fujifilm's promotional YouTube videos of photogs moving in slow motion, X-Pro2 in hand, ambient music playing in the background as the voice-over proclaims the X-Pro2 as the instrument connecting personal...

“That Paris exists and anyone could choose to live anywhere else in the world will always be a mystery to me.” – Marion Cotillard It is hard to put into words why I love this city so much.  Paris is many things;  beautiful at...

96 Hours in Paris – Part One

I am consumed by the city.  This isn’t my first trip here, nor will it be my last, but the magic, the wonderment, it never goes away.  My mind takes in the people, the sounds, the smells, the architecture, the beauty that lays at...

Kandooma.

XPro2 + XF35mm F1.4 Maldives was never in my bucket list for travel photography. Can’t imagine being stuck in a small island for a week. Having said this; my wife can’t resist a promotional deal from Silkair and the rest is history. The...

Writing visual poetry with R-A-I-N

It’s been almost three years since we started working on our R-A-I-N project. Since then we have not only embraced shooting in the R-A-I-N but have also fallen in love with it. I feel that photographing on sunny days is like writing a job assignment...
