Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 R WR
26th May 2023

I had the opportunity to use the new Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 the day it was announced. Almost out of the blue. I asked one of my contacts at Fujifilm if they had the 8-16mm lens at hand because I needed an ultra-wide angle lens to photograph an apartment for Airbnb. The spaces were a bit restrictive, therefore I wanted the widest non-fisheye lens in the Fujifilm range. Luckily, a magazine reviewer...

Prints for Sale - Toronto mockup
16th April 2020

Yes, prints are now on sale in my shop! You probably remember my post about what to expect from me this year (don’t worry if you don’t, here’s the link). So you know this was due. I started selling prints even before I established my photography business. The first time it happened, I had not planned for it at all. I posted my photo of the sunrise over the Haleakalā volcano in...

Which looks pretty counterintuitive for a Designer.This article is not meant to be a suggestion to ditch your own. This works for me for reasons I will elaborate on here, but it might be the wrong choice for everybody else. It could also be for me, but since making this decision, I have...

– So, I went to see your dad yesterday. He asked me if you’re well.– Uh, yeah. I guess. Why did he ask?– He said the last time he saw you, you never smiled.– Oh. Well, maybe I was tired for the travel.– Then he said he saw your cousin, and he also mentioned when you two met. He felt you were not well either.– Oh, really? This is pretty much when...
