Last week FXA Perth photographers had the opportunity to attend a lighting workshop hosted at Camera Electronics featuring professional photographer Dan Avila. For those of you who don’t know who Dan Avila is, let me give you a brief summary. He is a Fujifilm GFX shooter based in Perth, Western Australia. He is photojournalist, writer and travel photographer. Dan shoots all around the world and works with a wide range of clients. Lighting is just one of his many expertise as a photographer.
Last weekend Perth experienced one of the largest photo events of the year, Photo Live Expo. This year was my third year in a row that I have attended the ever growing event. There were a large variety of exhibitors in the main hall. All your big camera brands were present (Fujifilm had a nice central location in the hall). Photographic associations, education centres and photo accessory businesses were also on hand. Tripods, bags, filters etc. It was a great show floor. I was there was the morning and it was full of energy. For the first time this year they had a whole section dedicated to videography gear too.
On a recent long weekend trip to Singapore, I met up with Singaporean Fujifilm X Photographer Ivan for a morning photowalk around Little India. He may be a Fujifilm X Photographer, but more importantly he’s a fuji fanboy who has a quirky and fun approach to photography. It was such a fun and insightful morning of photographing around little India.
