Domke F-803 messenger style camera bag

You can never have too many camera bags. Bags are a very personal thing, and depending on my task, I may choose to carry one bag over another. When I purchased my new Fuji X-T1 as a small shoulder camera to take everywhere, I needed a small bag that I felt comfortable taking everywhere. I have other larger bags that hold a lot of gear, but one thing is for sure, if you are not comfortable when you...


Lens Utopia: Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2

If you are a photographer, my words of advice on purchasing gear: Invest your photography future in glass. My recent purchase of the Fuji xf 56mm f/1.2 lens recalled for me just how important those words are. I’ve always believed your lenses will give you more value towards image quality than the camera body. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of shooting with some amazing pieces of glass fr...


Fuji X-T1 update

It has been 6 months since I purchased my Fuji X-T1, so I thought a follow up review would be appropriate, especially since a new firmware update for the camera has added a slew of new features. A lot has changed in the 6 months, I started to incorporate the camera at weddings and realized its power and capability is not limited due to its small size. However, the looks from some of the people at ...


A rare Saturday off

Its not very often that I get a Saturday off, especially in October. This past Saturday I did not have a wedding scheduled and my portrait was rescheduled to Sunday since there was rain in the forecast. It turned to be a decent day. My wife and daughter had to work, so I grabbed my Fuji X-T1, my Gitzo tripod and headed out for a hike. If you follow me, you already know I'm in love with my new Fuji...

Gordy’s strap – A simple classic

There’s nothing like the look, feel and durability of quality leather. If you read my review on the Fuji X-T1 camera you are aware of my intentions for this smaller camera to be on my shoulder as often as possible. But it’s just a strap? True, but I wanted a good functional strap that was comfortable and did not get in the way. Over the years I have become a big fan of the Black Rapid sling st...


A new beginning – Fuji X-T1

Let me first start this by saying, this is not meant to be a technical review, there are tons of technical reviews on this camera all over the internet. I wanted to share my personal experience of ownership of the Fuji X-T1 over the last 6 weeks and how it has changed my photography experience. I can remember picking up my first camera as a teenager. Everywhere I went, so did my camera. A s...


Harrisburg wedding photographer: Samantha & Luke

The beautiful countryside setting at The Wind in the Willows located just outside Harrisburg, PA was the location for the wedding celebration of Samantha and Luke. The rustic barn is an amazing place for a reception and is surrounded by plenty of wonderful photo opportunities. It was fitting that Samantha, being a country girl, along with her bridesmaids, were all wearing cowboy boots. For Luke, b...
