COMMENT

In 2011 the X100 rekindled my creative soul and made me fall in love with picture taking again. The X-Pro1 followed soon after and I realised straight away that mirrorless capture was the way to go and the Fuji design DNA had the soul I was looking for in a camera system.

Photography is my life. It's my release. I love to see and capture beauty in a freely expressive way. I create all my pictures from scratch. I love to take control of the light and I direct every aspect of the shoot.

I’ve been a professional image-maker now for over 30 years and my photography just seems to get better and better. I owe a significant part of that success to the Fuji X cameras that fuel my passion.
