FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What photography gear do you use?
It’s a pretty big list of gear, but my main photography gear is the Fuji-film X-series line up. My main body is a Fuji XT2 with an 18-55mm f2.8, 10-24mm f4-5.6 a telephoto 55-230mm f4.5-5.6 and an array of other lenses, drones and video set up.
What camera would you recommend for novice photographers / videographers?
There are a multitude of camera companies out there that produce both consumer level cameras like point and shoots, through to the most expensive Full frame mirrorless cameras on the market. If your new to photography, I would suggest the Fuji-film x-series line up. It’s an interchangeable lens system, meaning you can physically remove the lens and swap it for another. What I love about the fuji system is the ability to have full control of your settings (ISO, aperture & shutter speed) all located on dials on the top of the camera. Something like the XT20 or XT30 are amazing cameras to start you off, plus they won’t hurt your hip pocket too much.
