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...

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...

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...

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...

GFX100 now 400 megapixel
26th November 2020

Oh yeah, 400 megapixel images are now a thing (408, to be precise). I mean, You could already produce 400 megapixel images (and beyond) by stitching images together. But you couldn’t take a single 400 megapixel shot. And now, thanks to the latest firmware update for the GFX100 medium format camera, it’s real. The GFX100 was already capable of shooting 102 megapixel images. But today Fujifilm released a new firmware update that...

Richmond Park | Stag | The Limited 10
24th October 2020

Yesterday I went out with my friend Martyn for a photographic morning with Richmond Park deers. This park just outside of London is famous for its deers but also has a nice view over the city (albeit far away) that is perfect for sunrise in some periods. It’s not the only park with deers, there’s at least Bushy Park as well, but here seems to live the largest colony. Autumn is the...

What's In My Camera Bag
27th August 2020

You likely see the “What’s In My Camera Bag” videos all over YouTube. It’s quite a popular topic for several reasons: people are genuinely interested in what professionals use, it satisfies the Gear Acquisition Syndrome, it’s a way for a content creator to put out some affiliate links (they do help), etc. And even though I do not do too many reviews, I had to publish my own version too. If only...

vlog mitakon lens for street photography
20th August 2020

I did ask myself if the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 could indeed be the hardest lens for street photography. Despite the clickbait title, this was a genuine question I had. And so I decided to give it a good test. To this day, Fujifilm does not release blueprints for its lenses to other manufacturers. So you don’t often see other brands produce lenses for the X-Mount. One brand that comes to mind is...

Fujifilm GFX 50S
14th August 2020

I rented the Fujifilm GFX 50S for a job (office interiors and corporate headshots). But I still had some spare time to use it before sending it back to Fuji. So, of course, I made a video! I used medium-format cameras in the past. When in Florence, I worked with the medium format to photograph paintings, sculptures and all masterpieces of the great museums we have in my hometown! So this format...

Recipe for Black and White photography
7th July 2020

What do I mean by a recipe for Black and White photography? Fujifilm photographers should be familiar with the concept of recipes already. For everybody else, it is a combination of in-camera settings that allows, among other things, to recreate the effects of old analogue films. Something that Fujifilm is very passionate about, having created some of the most spectacular colour films in the good old years. Frankly, I don’t know if...

First day of shops reopening in the UK and I immediately went out for a post-lockdown Street Photo challenge in Chinatown.And you can watch it unfold on my YouTube channel! 🙂 Filming and editing for YouTube is so much fun I really feel silly for having procrastinated for so long. I always found plenty of excuses that in the end don’t matter at all. Yes, I’m nervous being on the other side...

4th June 2020

As you may know, if you follow me on Instagram, I spent last weekend going out doing a full Fujifilm X100V hands-on test. And I vlogged with the X-T4 in the meantime. I’m actually excited because it is my first vlog on YouTube! Something I had procrastinated for soooooo long. I finally managed to launch my YouTube photography channel only a few weeks ago and now I published my first vlog! To...
