Marrakech and Ozoud Falls | Luke Walker

Foolishly forgetting that we’d be visiting peak summer when the temperature would be a scorching 40+ degrees, a few weeks back my brother and I decided to take a trip to Marrakech, a place I’d wanted to visit for some time. Despite a somewhat aggressive confrontation with some locals on arrival and frustrating encounters with several souk owners on the first day, we loved it. And the heat wasn’t that bad. The two of us spent just under a week exploring Marrakech’s labyrinth of narrow alleys, visiting the main points of interest, sampling the local food and relaxing in bars with gorgeous panoramic terraces. We also took a trip to the province of Azilal, 150km northeast of Marrakech, to see the breathtaking Ouzoud Falls (photos towards the end of this post). Marrakech is great. The colours, smells, energy and atmosphere. I’d love to visit again……..

A journey to Marrakesh | Jesper Storgaard Jensen

I’m Danish, born in 1964, and have been living in Rome since 1997. I have always loved writing and at a certain point, after my arrival in Rome, I started to collaborate with magazines producing travel articles. It was from this that the Danish Daily wanted to publish a travel article of mine from an Italian island. Unfortunately the PR-photos were of a too poor quality. In other words, I had to do the photos myself. This is when I purchased my first ever 5-mega-pixel camera. That was back in 2003, and since then, my interest in photography has been steadily increasing. I had been working for the Danish Embassy in Rome for ten years, but in 2009 I took the jump to become a full time freelance journalist and photographer shooting travel, culture, food & wine and interviews. Everything with my own imagery. We – a total of eight persons – were doing a 7 day on-the-road-trip round Morocco, two days of which were spent in Marrakesh. As I needed to travel light, I packed only my Fuji gear – Fuji X-E2, the 18-55mm kit lens and the 35 mm lens for portraits & food. I must say that I find this a excellent combination and the overall weight is significantly reduced compared to DSLR gear…….

Fuji vs Nashville…… | Bill Fortney

I’ve been in Nashville, Tennessee all week with our Third Annual Nashville/Ricky Skaggs Americana Workshop.  Country Music/Bluegrass Legend (14 rimes Grammy Winner!) Ricky Skaggs is also an accomplished photographer and good friend and he and I, plus Jim Begley and John “Snake” Barrett, and Nick Coury, run this annual workshop during Nashville’s Bluegrass Month.  While we have been shooting the many fantastic locations around Nashville, I’ve been giving the X-System lenses a workout and thought I might share some of the images from this weeks shoot! Tonight the entire group will go to Ricky and Kentucky Thunders concert at the Historic Ryman Theatre, images from that tomorrow! At Marathon Motorworks we always shoot the decorative tool door at the Motor works offices. Fuji X-T1 with the 16-55……

Schwarzweisse Kappadokien-Erkundung mit dem Fujinon XF 10-24mm |
Feyzi Demirel

Oh Mann! Da stehe ich im Prinzip kurz vor einer Reise in meine „Heimat“ nach Kappadokien und entdecke noch Fotos vom letzten Urlaub dort, die ich noch nicht durchgesehen und bearbeitet habe. Ich habe mich gefragt, warum ich die Fotos vergessen habe, aber den einen Grund habe ich nicht gefunden. Am Wahrscheinlichsten ist es aber, dass ich in der Zwischenzeit zu viele Fotos produziert habe, die eine höhere Priorität hatten. Bei der Durchsicht der Fotos ist mir aber aufgefallen, dass ich mit mehreren Monaten Abstand recht emotionslos und objektiv in der Bewertung sein konnte. Ich denke, dass dieser zeitliche Abstand mitunter ein großer Vorteil sein kann, um Fotos richtig zu bewerten. Eine weitere Sache, die mir aufgefallen ist, war mein aktueller Hang zur Schwarzweiss-Fotografie. Ich weiß zwar genau, was ich daran schätze, wo die Vor- und Nachteile sind, aber dass Farben gerade so dermaßen „Evil“ sind, wundert mich schon. Ist wahrscheinlich nur eine Phase und ich muss da nicht aktiv in die Tiefenanalyse gehen und womöglich justieren……..

How I Became a Location Independent Travel Photographer |
Elia Locardi

Naomi and I just celebrated our 40th month of being on the road full-time and living a 100% location independent lifestyle. Looking back, it seems like a lifetime ago when we made that crazy decision to sell nearly everything we owned and adopt a life filled with travel photography. In a way, it really was a lifetime ago because we were completely different people back then living very different lives; two people with a dream of what could be, teeming with optimism, but with no real idea of how it would all work out in the end. What most people don’t know is that it was an incredible struggle for us to get to where we are now. Success has not come easily and before we made the decision to become location independent, we had spent a few difficult years trying to cope with an impossible amount of debt, losing nearly everything to the housing crisis and eventually having to file bankruptcy. The video explains that journey and how those hardships ushered in a transformation not only to our lifestyle, but our priorities and a complete shift in our ideas of success. It’s weird to think that we had to lose nearly everything to gain what would become the greatest collection of experiences and memories of our entire lives…….

72 hours in Rome | Damien Lovegrove

I recently read two tips on how to become a successful travel blogger. The first one said “Be unique, have a different approach.” That sounds like good advice but being unique is not always an easy thing to do and the other nugget of advice said “Always have a human element in your pictures.” Yet again it’s good advice, people like something or someone to relate to. So I decided to apply the first bit of advice to the second and remove the human element altogether. That way I’m pretty sure I’ll have a unique edge. After all, I’ve spent my life photographing people and in doing so I’ve developed a habit of putting the background out of focus so I decided to just concentrate on the bits that I usually leave out……

In Penang | Flemming Bo Jensen

We spent the first three weeks of July on the island of Penang in Malaysia. Charlene and I may fly a fair bit, but these three weeks were really the first time in all of 2015 that we traveled somewhere not to go on a business trip to do lots of photography, promotion and website work. This was our time, we got to hang out, to shoot, write, chill, walk around and relax a bit and have some much needed time for ourselves. A little holiday. We stayed in the world heritage protected Georgetown (the Cintra Heritage House gets my highest recommendation!). Walking around Georgetown is brilliant, the historical houses have been beautifully preserved and turned into great guest houses and cafes where we often ended up spending half a day sipping Tea or Penang White Coffee and writing or reading. The food is spectacular. It is a fascinating melting pot of many different cultures and people, and it is totally safe and you can walk everywhere. Penang gets it perfectly right, I highly recommend it……

Two Weeks in Ireland with the FujiFilm XT-10 & XT-1 | Caveira Photography

But there was a lot packed into those 11 days – a crazy big Irish wedding, amazing ancient sights and scenery, and a heck of a lot of good food, people, and beer. Oh yeah… and the XT-10 & XT-1 with the new Firmware 4.0 plus a few rather nice pieces of FujiFilm glass. After many months of dreaming about this big trip and even bigger wedding in Ireland, the time finally came. The lead up to the trip and shooting said wedding was made even better with the arrival of the XT-10 and the new firmware 4.0 update that proved the XT-10 to be a formidable force in ‚budget‘ mirrorless cameras, and breathed new life into the XT-1, even though it didn’t really need it. …….

The X100T and Marrakesh Part 2 | Stockografie

This is part II of a two part blogpost on a visit to Marrakesh. If you have not read Part I please do so. All photographs where taken with the Fujifilm X100T. Some of them are Jpegs OOC and some of them are edited raw files using Lightroom 6. On day 4 it was time to hit the streets of Marrakesh again. The Fujifilm X100T with the Artisan & Artist 103 camera strap and the lens hood mounted on it where slung around my shoulder. It was time for a cooking class today. My wife and I had booked this with the great help of the guys and girls of Riad Aguaviva. I cannot repeat often enough how helpful they were. The cooking class was great. First off we learned a lot about the spices which are in the Tajine we were going to cook. After that it was time to hit the local market and grab all the goodies including choosing a live chicken. If you wanted you could take a look at the chicken being slaughtered and then also being cut into it´s peaces. Yes I know that sounds cruel but we should all be aware of the fact that if you eat meat it comes from a living animal in the first place…….
