“SXSW (South by Southwest), the large multi-week Austin extravaganza, took place a couple of weeks ago and I'm just catching up. I'm back from my California trip and I primed to talk about two new cameras that I'm testing.”
“After a long time, today I am posting a few images taken with the Fuji X100 camera. My relationship with the X100 has gone from various stages. At one point, I reached a step before selling it, but thankfully, I decided to keep it.”
“Why? Four years ago I bought my first big DSLR camera, and of course I was absolutely stoked with it; how professionally the camera works (This review of the X100s could also be interesting for the guys of Fujifilm!”
My interest in digital photography has continued to develop since rekindling the flame in 2007. I use a Canon EOS 7D with a range of lenses including the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM and the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM.
My first main project was 365 Days of Self Portraits. Each portrait was done on consecutive days and posted the same day to my Flickr account. Since then I've done a 52 Weeks of self portraits project which has now been finished and published on Blurb ... A second and third set of 52 Weeks were completed in 2011 and 2012.
In the past year I 've been concentrating on developing my wildlife photography.
My Photographs have been used by: Leeds City Council, BBC Countryfile Magazine, BettaKultcha, BBC Leeds, 5x5 Photomagazine (California), Molly Bloom, Hoodoo, Idris Bach Cottage, YEP, The Forbidden Corner and many other individuals web projects.
Please get in touch if you would like to use any of my photographs or have an idea for a commission.
Murmurings that Fujifilm will be one of the next companies to introduce a full-frame mirrorless camera aren't new. The X200 is supposedly going to be full-
Simon Peckham's insight:
I really hope this rumour is wrong. I have no intention of buying into another group of lenses. FF is not needed for me. If this turns out to be true my money will move towards the X200 fixed lens full frame. Now that is a good feeling.
“Their was still half a pizza left in the box and we were still surprised that our little sheltered spot out of the wind had stayed relatively sand free. The water was getting closer and it was getting dark quickly.”
Here’s a fun shot from a recent visit to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco with my photo buddy Doug Kaye. We were walking along outside where for as many years as I can remember they sell these shrimp cocktails, fresh crab, sourdough bread bowls with soup inside, and more! It’s quite a marketplace in action …
