Over the past few weeks I have been writing a series of blogs for the Fuji X Aus site. The key to these blogs has been and will continue to be all about gathering the thoughts, opinions, insights, skills, workflows and tips directly from members of the Fuji X Aus Facebook group. These blogs will be about some of those key photography questions that we see discussed in the group on a fairly regular basis. And in return it is my hope that these blogs will give back to the greater community a wealth of information. The members are approached by myself for a short interview to gain a little insight into who they, what they shoot and why they use Fujifilm X Series products.
by Mark Condon As the founder of Shotkit, I’m in the fortunate position to have access to virtually any photography related product. Being a huge fan of the Fujifilm X Series cameras and lenses, I’ve handled every camera and lens in the line up. Fujifilm X100F – 1/160 second – F4 – ISO 640 […]
We have the best community around. Our group gathers once a month and we often visit new places, meet familiar and new friends and participate in challenges that’ll make you want to throw your camera (and later send it to Fujifilm Australia for repair). The month of August was a special one in our books. We gathered at Newtown, NSW to experiment with all sorts of lights. Continue reading “Sydney | Experimenting with Lighting”
In recent weeks I have been writing a series of blogs for the Fuji X Aus site. It has been an amazing and eye opening experience to talk with members of the Fuji X Aus community and discuss with them their skills, insights, processes and move all else, how they utilise the Fujifilm X Series in their photographic journey. I have been able to address some key questions in these blogs to date and as a result have been able to provide a reference for other photographers to learn from on the Fuji X Aus site.

Someone saw photos of me out on a shoot with a Greg and asked if I could do a review for Greg because they were looking to shoot with him. It’s at this point that I realised that Greg hasn’t had a lot of publicity and reviews so it was time for a Greg v0.1 review. Continue reading “Greg v0.1 Review”
Like many of you, I have some photographers that I follow on various social media channels. I follow some because they have a really unique style or approach to a genre of photography. Others I follow because they photograph parts of the world that interest me or places I too have been and photographed. Some have a strict formula for how they present their images on one specific media channel. I have lots of photographic heroes to say the least. One of those heroes is Tongue Bui. He is a member of the Fuji X Aus community but is now Toronto based. If you have not heard of the name, then you will certainly have recognised his signature style of highly dynamic and colourful portraiture images.
Glamourous Camping or Glamping as it’s known as has always been something I wanted to experience for a long time, fortunately, that opportunity presented itself through the Fuji X Aus community. Big thanks and shout out to Ian Tan for organising and putting it together, Dale Rogers from Photo Rangers for being our tour guide, Randall from The Sheltered Glamping Co for the amazing experience, Leigh Diprose from Fujifilm Australia for the loan GFX50s + assortment of lenses (and the awesome Fujifilm X Coffee Mugs) and finally to all those who attended the event. In short, it was an experience I would never forget and something that I want to share with the community.
I have long been a big believer that art can be a great healer. In life we are presented with unique, complex and sometimes horrific situations to deal with, and find a way through, to a better and more liveable outcome. And whilst I acknowledge that it is not always possible, taking up a creative pursuit can be a great form of therapy. Perhaps it is the mindfulness of the activity itself versus the end outcome. Whilst there is great joy and pride in producing a finished piece of art, the process to get there can be the most satisfying.
