The Fuji X100s… 50 images

As a photographic student in the late 80’s I used an old Contax IIIa with a 35mm lens as my “walkaround” camera… taking pictures every day and documenting whatever was going on. It was always loaded with bulk Tri-X, I would develop the film in Rodinal at 1:50… contact print and every couple of months look at the images to see if any caught my eye and were worth printing. Years later the closest I found to the feeling of the Contax or a Leica M4 was a Konica Hexar…. The Hexar was used for around four or five years before being destroyed on a climbing trip to Scotland… I used a Contax G2 for about three years before getting tired of the lack of support from Contax. And so to the the Fuji X100s, the closest I have yet come to having the same sort of connection with a camera since the Contax or the Hexar….

Fifty images shot over the course of the past five years or so…. I must of shot thousands of images, these are just a few of my favorite… for no other reason than they remind me that documenting our everyday life is possibly among the most important  things we can do as photographers…


Their first Christmas…

Christmas 2017 was spent with some of my Danish family. This year I were lucky to have my mum over to spend time with us and to enjoy the twins, Cassius and Maximus’s first Christmas…

A few reportage images from the evening

For the “photographers” :

I shot on a single Fuji X-Pro2 switching between the XF23mm & XF50mm. All images were shot at f2.0 1/60 and auto ISO… which was actually a mistake, I normally select the ISO at the start of an assignment and stick to it. Minimal cropping of a few frames and converted to B&W in Silver EFEX2. Despite Christmas colors being warm and inviting I still believe these images work better in B&W… 




Burpee love…

The Crossfit open season for 2016 is drawing to a close…. I have enjoyed being part of the crossfit community and been lucky to be able to photograph some of the workouts… This year saw Burpee’s in two of the workouts… I’m not sure if its my hate of actually doing the burpee but it took me a while to find a way of successfully making images of them… Get low… or get high… wait for the inevitable pain-face or look of despair… include people around the action…. all fairly basic photographic techniques…. so I guess my “Burpee-hate” ran a little deeper than I thought…. At least I got better by the end of the five weeks…
