I was watching a TED talk with David Alan Harvey and it reminded me of just how much photography has enriched my life! For those that may not know, David is one of the greatest of all the National Geographic photographers, a true master photographer and he happens to now be a Fujifilm shooter. For 43 yars of my photography life I shot Nikon and even worked for Nikon as a NPS, (Nikon Professional Services), tech rep from 2002 to 2013. After rotator cuff surgery I had a long and difficult recovery and was simply was not able to carry around full frame DSLRs and their associated lenses for a while. During my recover time, I picked up a Fujifilm X10, and I still have it, it was my gateway drug to the wonderful Fujifilm family of cameras. A very interesting thing happened, the sheer simplicity of that little rangefinder styled camera led to some of the best work I had done in years. The simplification of the process led to a more pure approach to making images again.
Fast forward seven years and I am now a fully committed Fujifilm shooter, and X-Photographer. I still love my Nikon freinds, and have great respect for their cameras and lenses, I’ve simply found a new home for my work, and the way I approach the craft of photography. I’ve also found a group of dedicated professionals that are making my work so much more rewarding. Justin Stailey, Senior Manager for Product Developement and Stacey Moore, Field Marketing Manager have both become dear friends and had helped my work in so many ways. The Fujifilm Director of Marketing, Victor Ha is bringing a wonderful new insight to the Marketing and relationship efforts of Fujifilm. His influence is driven by his dedication to and love of photography and all of us that shoot the Fujifilm family of products are the benfactors of his leadership.
Fujifilm’s latest camera body is a prime eample fo how the company is developing products that are extremely photo-centric! The new X-PRO 3.
It’s design is developed around the pure shooter concept of simplicity and functionality! I hope to be doing a full revicew in early December!
As a photo generalist I do a great variety of work and the Fujifilm System of cameras and lenses has opened up new worlds of opportunity for my passion! Their color science, incredible engineering, and superier optics have made my life as a shooter so much easier and more productive!
I hve enjoyed the ride so much and with this kind of support, I’m looking forward to each new chapter of the journey!
