Inspiration: Thomas Menk | Fuji vs. Fuji

As a reader of this site, you almost certainly already know Thomas Menk as the hardest working guy in Fuji curation. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the appearance his work as a photographer in my Twitter feed even more. While I’ve always enjoyed Thomas’ photography, I really like the the images he’s been posting from a recent workshop in Venice. The processing is sublime. There’s a feel to them that I haven’t seen from him before that stops me from scrolling, and compells me to just enjoy the image…….

Interview with Thomas Menk | FStopLounge

Thomas Menk defines himself as a fine art photographer, a designer, a philosopher, a composer, a father, a learner and a human being. He is undoubtedly all of those, but he’s also an official Fujifilm X-Photographer and the curator of a growing and popular collection of links to blog posts and web pages about the Fuji X series of cameras. Based on my interaction with him, he seems to me a soft-spoken, humble gentleman that is not going to be changed by his popularity. If you read his answers, I am sure you will agree with me.

F Stop Lounge: Tell us a bit about you and your photography.

Thomas Menk: I am an entrepreneur with different sectors of activity and companies. Photography was and is my passion since more than 20 years. Through various exhibitions in galleries and in my own gallery my photography work became a lucrative sideline in recent years, so now I need a new hobby :) My focus is in landscape and travel photography. However, I also love street photography – but without people ;-) As a landscape and nature photographer, I think that people even disturb the peace and harmony of the composition. Nevertheless, I find it very nice to find places in towns without people and hold them. Sometimes quite a challenge. Photography is a nice balance to my other activities and I love the luxury of not having to earn my living with this…….

Have a nice time :-)

Check out Inspired Eye: Issue 11 – Developing the eyes,
hearts and minds of photographers | MirrorLessons

I was surprised and delighted to see that this issue of Inspired Eye features two photographers with whose work I am already familiar thanks to our social networks: Kevin Mullins, a wedding photographer from the UK, and Thomas Menk, who many of you will recognise as the curator of the informative Fuji X-Pro Scoop page. Both use Fujifilm X series cameras for all their work and are X Photographers. Fans of Kevin’s work will be interested to read how he started out in photography, what his primary influences are, and what his plans are for the future. Near the end of the interview, he makes brief mention of an upcoming project that would involve documenting the hours leading up to and following a cesarean birth, which I found interesting as I only just saw the incredible results of the project this morning. All I can say is that it is definitely worth checking out………

Official Fuji X-Photographer

My Thoughts After 18 Months Shooting With the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 |
David Ogilvy

Fuji’s X-Pro 1 offers a retro homage to another era―namely the era of the Leica rangefinder, with the overall dimensions, handling, form factor, and style of shooting as an M camera (though the Fuji is not a proper rangefinder) … but with a truly state-of-the art bit of engineering in the form of its X-Trans sensor (you can read my early thoughts about the camera in detail here). Much like Nikon’s new retro-inspired Df, the XP1 has created a lot of polarization in the photographic community. Search around the web and you’ll find some folks regaling their readers with tales of how magnificent the file output is (it certainly can be) and how they can live with the camera’s well-reported quirks. Others lambaste it for its slow overall operational speed, and are less than convinced about the quality of the X-Trans files…..
