With over 20 years of photographic experience in several fields, including sport, travel, automotive, landscape and photo-journalism, Jeff Carter runs MacLean Photographic in Dunbar on Scotland’s east coast and travels the world in search of the next next great image to capture.
A user of Fujifilm cameras and film in the 1980s and 1990s Jeff Carter had no hesitation in purchasing a limited edition X100 when the camera was launched. Adding an X-Pro1 and prime lenses a short time afterwards, Jeff found that the X Series allowed him the freedom to explore his creativity with ease and put the joy back into the image making process.
In 2014 Jeff became fully immersed in the X Series with the launch of the X-T1 and since then the X-T2, X-Pro2, X100T, along with an selection of Fujinon lenses, has been the backbone of his photographic business.
He also uses the X Series as his primary camera system for stills and video when working as the Media Delegate for the FIA World Endurance Championship, which in 2017 will race around the world in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, USA, Japan, China and Bahrain as well as the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
As well as providing photographic services to commercial clients, MacLean Photographic run a number of Photographic Workshops and Tours for individual or small groups of photographers of all abilities.
“A camera is the tool of my trade and the best tool is one that becomes an extension of my creativity, something that I can use without thinking about to capture an image. I have used all different types of cameras over the last 20 years but, for me, the X Series cameras I use are like an extension of my eye and brain.
“The X-T2, X-Pro2, X-T1 and X100T I currently use, along with the range of quality XF Lenses, are tools that allow me the freedom to be creative but they have also put the joy back into the image making process.”
