Bhutan: Tranquility in the Land of the Thunder Dragon | Ross Kennedy

As globalisation takes hold and starts to squeeze all the diversity out of even the farthest-flung cultures, it is quite a surprise to find a tiny country holding the modern world at bay. Bhutan’s unique topography and location in a forgotten corner of the Himalaya have left it free to pick and choose which parts of 21st century life to let past the border gate. Any development is done under strict regulations which famously prioritise “Gross National Happiness” and protection of the environment over Gross National Profit.  Rather than rushing headlong into economic progress, the country has taken a long hard look at the mistakes of its neighbours and decided to do things a little differently. Until the 1960’s, the country remained closed-off from the outside world, operating without currency, health services or roads. Only the Chinese invasion of neighbouring Tibet pushed the government into opening up its border with India and the start of a cautious modernisation. TV and the internet were “allowed” in 1999. Each important town is dominated by an enormous white Dzong – imposing fortress-monasteries which were constructed in the 16th century to protect the country from Tibetan invasion. Each dzong is a strange fusion of church and state, containing both the local government administration and a monastery. Monks flit silently across the courtyards like scarlet wraiths while well-fed minor bureaucrats huff and puff up rickety staircases……..

7700 km with the Fuji X-series | Olaf Sztaba

What a trip it was! We covered 7700 kilometres, ventured into the most incredible landscapes in the world and met fascinating people.

We travelled with Fuji X-T1, XF 14mm F2.8, a brand new XF 50-140mm F2.8 OIS and Fuji X100T. We have a lot of material for you, which we have only just started to review. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing with you imagery from this trip including many photos taken with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 along with more thoughts about this lens. We are also working on a full review of the Fuji X100T. Here are some teaser images…..

Myanmar (Burma) – Travel photography paradise | Björn Moerman

When planning my travels, I’m often try to have the most spectacular and interesting places towards the end of the trip and this how it worked out again during my latest photo-adventure to Myanmar (Burma)! I often find myself needing a few days to fully “get into the zone” during these longer photo-adventures.

BAGAN
In the last part of my Myanmar blog-series, we first will be visiting the ancient city of Bagan (Pagan); From the 9th till the 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first Kingdom that did unify the regions and that would eventually become modern Myanmar. During the height of the Kingdom between the 11th and 13th century, more than 10.000 temples, pagodas and monasteries were built in the plains of Bagan. Today over 2200 remain in a surprisingly good condition….

Scotland for Ernest Journal / Fuji X-E2 Travel Photography |
Colin Nicholls

I was recently once again contacted by Ernest Journal Magazine with a request to head up to Scotland, take on a few assignments and see some incredible sights, all for the feature and cover of their second issue. Of course I said yes. I had 4 goals on my trip and a few places to visit, in short these were:

  • Meet a prawn fisherman, head out on his boat and get some photos of him fishing. This was a great job to have, very interesting but also rather difficult to balance on a small boat, while taking photos.
  • Visit an oyster farm, great seeing how oysters are farmed, met some really nice people and was given a seafood platter fit for a party of 4, needless to say I tried some awesome food.
  • Travel to the Isle of Skye, meet some weavers who use a bicycle powered loom to make all sorts of things, very interesting and such a welcoming couple.
  • Covershoot, during my whole time in Scotland I was aiming to get a good selection of images for the magazine to choose their covershoot, in the end they went for one shot at Sligachan on the Isle of Skye……

Montego Bay Wedding Photographer | Ashley & Garret |
Vincent Opoku

How do I put into words all the things that took place during Ashley & Garret’s Destination Wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica? These guys are from Newfoundland, the most Eastern Province in Canada. Temperatures during the winter months can drop to -25°C. So put them on a Caribbean Island for a week with lots of sunshine, temperatures in the region of +30°C, the Caribbean Sea, some good Rum and in the company of 40 other cool and crazy Canadians and there is bound to be lots of fun. In all honesty, Ashley did warn me in advance “I don’t know if you’ve heard much about Newfoundlanders but there are a famous breed of people here in the western part of the world and I just know that the week is going to be riot!” Ashley and Garret jumping off the cliff together at Rick’s Cafe in Negril the day after their wedding remains one of my favourite moments ever as a wedding photographer. Don’t worry Ash, I won’t tell anyone that you was scared to death about the whole process. The wedding day itself took place on the 10 year anniversary to the day that they went on their first date. How cool is that?! And I swear their two kids Rae and GiGi are the cutest ever! We still keep in touch, the odd text and FaceTime session here and there. We even spent two days doing touristy stuff this summer when they visited London. I guess it is safe to say that I have made some friends for life now, and it all began on the beautiful Island of Jamaica earlier this year……..

Punjab travelogue and my X100s | Sinbad Phgura

For me photography has been a life long passion , I got my first a square 35mm box tammy camera at the age of nine and and have been shooting ever since. I use mostly digital format cameras now, but not much has changed subject-wise, it’s people that I like to capture most, working with natural light & keeping the whole process as simple as possible. The magic for me has always been in the character study, to capture the honesty of the moment, & to connect with the soul somehow. That’s why India is such a joy to shoot, with all of it’s humanity right there in front of you to see, smell, hear & touch! I love the light, it’s incredible how its shades, textures & changes everything it touches throughout the day. I’ve been around the Fujifilm X system for a while now, one of my best friends Alex Lambrechts shoots with it & I know that these cameras are capable of stunning results! But I myself have so far have resisted to try one. It’s only when you have the camera in your hand and you have to shoot with it for a period of time, adjusting your mindset from dslr to rangefinder that the magic happens. Equipped with the Fuji X100s and a Millican camera bag I was off on my journey, Qatar Airways to Amritsar & into the heartland of the Punjab for my nephew’s wedding…….

Berlin | Gabor Nagy

Few weeks ago we spent a couple of days in Berlin and it happened to be the weekend when Germany celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I only found out about our trip a day before we travelled, it was a surprise from my wife Anita. So off we went with our little daughter Hanna to discover what Berlin has to offer on that amazing weekend. Since I completely moved to mirrorless system, I don’t really have trouble with the weight of my gear. I always have my X100s with me and this time I packed the Fuji X-T1 with the 35mm lens attached to it and of course loads of spare batteries. Berlin is a fantastic city and it’s not really hard to fall in love with it. It has amazing culture, rich history, sleek architecture, great places to eat and even better cafes but it also has a gritty side with plenty of street arts and graffitis which I found more fascinating. Combine my interest in street photography and Anita’s knowledge in speciality coffee, Berlin managed to offer a lot to both of us and Hanna loved it too……

Cuba Diary #1 | Jorge Ledesma

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world. If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days……

A family roadtrip around Australia with the Fuji X system |
Tom Leuntjens

I’m currently on a 3 month roadtrip with my family in Australia. We are travelling in a campervan with our two boys: a 3,5 year old and a 1 year old. It’s been a wonderful journey so far. Choosing my gear for this trip was rather easy. As a photographer I wanted to be able to make great pictures, but as a dad, it had to be compact & light. And to be honest, there wasn’t much room left in our bags. My camera bag (Retrospective 30) actually doubled as a diaper bag on the plane. What did I bring on this trip? A Fuji XT1 with the XF18 (27mm) and the XF35 (50mm) lenses and a Fuji X100S (35mm). A couple of SD cards, 4 batteries each and that’s it! I haven’t regretted this decision for a second. Most of time I tend to take just one camera and lens with me when we go walking. It makes me work with whatever I have with me at the time. Because of the built in ND filter the X100S has seen the most action so far. The XF35/XT1 combo is still my favourite (but eagerly awaiting the firmware update). The camera’s have been through a lot, they live on the dashboard or get tossed in a backpack. Most of the time I just have one dangling of my shoulder, on the beach, on a boat, through the rainforest. I’m not here as a photographer, I’m not hunting for the perfect picture, I don’t sit around and wait for perfect light. I just try to take some decent honest snaps of our time here, as a dad…….
