Fujifilm XF100-400
8th April 2021

I received the Fujifilm XF100-400 F/4.5-5.6 zoom lens from Fuji (not sponsored, I requested it as part of the Fujifilm Photographers programme I’m in). And so I went to test it in the woods, even though I don’t normally photograph much wildlife. I had an idea for a photo of the full moon (more on that during the video)… You know that I’m always keen on a good moon photo. Hence why...

Photographer's Everyday Carry EDC
16th March 2021

Here is my Photographer’s Everyday Carry (EDC). EDC includes all the nifty tools you always carry with you that may come in handy to overcome simple everyday unexpected problems. The famous “I’ll bring that, just in case…” Think of these items as the spare tire in your car, but more likely to be used (hopefully) 😉 I suppose in this digital age, even phone apps may count as EDC… Perhaps, this may...

Snow Moon moonset in London
4th March 2021

February’s full moon is called a Snow Moon, and here you will see the full Snow Moon moonset in London. Right between the City skyscrapers. If you have been following me for some time, you know I’m a sucker for a good moon photo. The moon is, in fact, featured a lot in this blog: I’m sure there will be more in the future as well. It’s just a subject that I...

Instagram banned hashtags
25th February 2021

Once again, I found that I had used one of the Instagram banned hashtag. Now, this has nothing to do with the infamous “shadowban” practice controversy. I noticed a slight decrease in engagement compared to previous posts, so I decided to investigate a little. Turns out that the hashtag #sunriselovers had been flagged for inappropriate content. Which meant that it was not generating any engagement because my post was hidden by Instagram....

epic london sunrise timelapse

Also, is the Fujifilm X-T4 simply the...

Snow in London photowalk
3rd February 2021

First (and so far only) day of snow of 2021, so of course I had to go out for a Snow In London photowalk! I love the snow, maybe because it is always been so rare in every city I have lived in. In Florence, for example, people still talk about the snow of 1985… This rare! The river Arno also froze, and you could walk over it, so that’s why the...

Fujifilm GFX 100S
28th January 2021

Yesterday, during their X-Summit, Fujifilm officially announced the new GFX100S and it’s a beauty! It’s the fourth large format mirrorless camera from Fujifilm and it really is the best yet. It is incredible how much punch is packed in this tiny body. Still with all the great features and excellence of this large format sensor. But in less than 1kg and with much better ergonomics! And, of course, the well-known image quality...

become a better photographer
22nd January 2021

If you ever want to become a better Photographer, there is one thing you need to start doing right now. Particularly when you’re starting this new career, it’s very easy to fall into traps. You buy a new camera because you saw all the great examples of what it can do in YouTube videos or Instagram posts, and you go straight out capturing everything you see. You find your photographer “role-models” and...

full time Fujifilm photographer
14th January 2021

Why I shoot with Fujifilm cameras and how I decided to be a full-time Fujifilm photographer are the two questions people ask me most frequently. As I’m spending more time in the studio now, because of the lockdown, this is a chance for another talking head video and time to answer these recurring questions. It was probably always in the cards, as Fujifilm has been with me since the beginning. But it’s...

Happy New Year London New Year fireworks
1st January 2021

Happy New Year, my friends! We are finally leaving 2020 behind us… Such a challenging year for the whole world! Exactly a year ago, I was fighting with the crowds to secure my spot at St.Paul’s Cathedral in London to get the sunset aligned with the London Eye. Something I achieved, as you can see in my latest Instagram post. Little did I know that fast forward twelve months, I’d be facing...

Photographer Of The Year 2020! How exciting is that? And how did that happen? Well, I received an email informing me that a photo of mine has been selected to be featured in the Photographer Of The Year exhibition in New York in February 2021. Photographer. Of. The. Year. 6 months ago, when I started my YouTube channel, I had just received a similar email for the Nature Photographer Of The Year...

4 Weeks of Instagram content in just 30 minutes
20th December 2020

That’s right: I created 4 weeks’ worth of Instagram content walking in Central London for less than 30 minutes. It could even be more than 4 weeks, considering I’m a bit of a slow uploader. But here you’ll see 20 photos I find worth sharing. And at 5 a week, it is 4 weeks of Instagram content. Taken on a 30 minutes walk. In case you think you don’t have time for...

Fujifilm X-T4 problems
12th December 2020

Only a few days ago, I talked about avoiding problems with Fujifilm X-T4 by keeping it clean (and how to do it). Unfortunately, my camera had a few other problems that couldn’t be solved by simply removing some dust. You probably watched many videos about its qualities, but not many cover the Fujifilm X-T4 problems. And I wish I didn’t have to make this video either, but the issues have gone way...

How to clean the X-T4 sensor
9th December 2020

How to clean the X-T4 sensor, or indeed any camera sensor, is a question we photographers eventually have to ask ourselves. Even if you swap lenses in what looks like the most dust-free environment, one day, it will happen: you’ll see a dust spot in your images. Myself, I believe I am the fastest lens-swapper in the universe 😂 but I still see these spots every now and then. Of course, it...
