The end of Street Photography?
5th October 2023

Despite the drama in many debates and even in some parts of the video below, I’m not entirely sure this could be the end of Street Photography… But maybe it is? These days, everyone is focused on AI and all that auto-generated images can do to disrupt the industry. But at a much higher level, governments are introducing or updating their privacy laws, tightening them to the point that Street Photography may...

Packing for a photography trip, image created by Midjourney
25th August 2023

Packing for a photography trip is never easy. It may be more straightforward if it’s only for a weekend rather than a few months. But it’s still a matter of making the right choices. Now it’s the Summer holidays season and I’m doing lots of packing and unpacking myself. For example, this weekend is a bank holiday here in the UK, and I’ll be visiting places. So, I thought it would be...

London 1 Gigapixel photo panorama skyline Fujifilm
10th August 2023

I have been thinking about creating a 1 gigapixel photo for a while. It’s not an entirely new concept to me. About 15 years ago, in Florence, with a company called Centrica (not the energy firm), we turned the masterpieces of the Uffizi gallery into digital at an incredibly high resolution. For example, we took dozens of shots of Botticelli’s Venere and then stitched them together to create this gigapixel photo that...

28th February 2023

Embargo is lifted, the Samyang 75mm F1.8 AF for Fujifilm X Mount has been announced, time to unveil! So… If you have followed me for a while, you know that here and there I always explicitly ask Fujifilm to release a 70mm fast prime lens. Like f/2 or faster. I started my career in fashion many years ago using Nikon gear. And my main portrait lens was the Nikkor 105mm f/2 with...

I created Collection for all of you who wish to hang award-winning and prestigious photographs on your walls. In these past years, I have been blessed with features at exhibitions, magazine publications and awards. I started taking photos almost 30 years ago and had done jobs in this field.

xmas trees, christmas, snow in London, London snow, park, , Victoria park, stable diffusion
24th December 2022

We recently had a few inches of snow in London. Almost perfect timing for the Xmas period! 🙂 The snow in London didn’t last long, but it was enough to cover the city with a fluffy white blanket. Which is always a lovely scene to behold. Last year as well, we had one day of snow, and I documented it in a YouTube video. I was still living close to the city...

Hoya Sparkle filters video review youtube
4th July 2022

Remember my Starry Nights short film? No? Well, it’s here to watch if you missed it: https://youtu.be/-1xWKCKgwG4 I mention it because I made that short film using the Hoya Sparkle filters, both 4x and 6x variants. These creative filters from Hoya make for very interesting results. But more importantly, they provide consistency and reliability to every image where you want to add a starburst effect (and maybe some soft diffusion). Something that...

gear matters
21st April 2022

You read it right, gear matters. I’m no stranger to controversial topics here, and I felt this video needed to be made. But the more you watch it, the less controversial it will appear. And in the end, I hope that you will see how this is my way to empower you so that you can take your best photos ever. Almost on a daily basis, I get asked which settings I...

Rule of Thirds - cover image
7th May 2020

When you’ve been a photographer for many years, you give some knowledge for granted, and the Rule of Thirds is certainly among those. But as of today, this is still the most searched photography-related topic on Google. So maybe I should write about it. If there’s enough interest, I might cover more Photography basics. Let me know in the comments if it’s something you would like to see here. What is the...

I'm often asked why I shoot Fujifilm, rather than maybe follow the latest trends on YouTube and go with Sony or any big DSLR... Trust is, it happened by chance. Here's how.
