Favourite lens Fujinon GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR
The lens I turn to most is usually the 110mm on the Fujifilm GFX 50S, the compression coupled with incredible sharpness and detail rendition make it perfect for most of my work. A landscape photographer using something other than a wideangle lens often surprises people but I love the narrower angle of view and the extra separation you can get with careful selection of aperture. The lens is also perfect for the abstract work I love to shoot, and the urban images I make while leading workshops around the world. It allows me to isolate details, while keeping some context. It’s quite something when you find your perfect focal length coupled with incredible design, technical quality and weight – the lens and camera become completely invisible to me. Photography has to be simple; it’s not a technical art, it’s about allowing my eye to roam around the scene and the subject, knowing that the camera and lens choice I have made will recreate what I want. When the images I have taken with the GFX and the 110mm are printed – usually a minimum of A2 – people gasp at the detail and sharpness of the subjects. The Fujifilm GFX 50S and 110mm make that happen for me. Put simply they make me smile when I shoot with them, and that is the best reason to use them.
The Fujinon 110mm is an ideal length for portraits Fujifilm GFX 50S, 110mm, 1/800sec at f/4, ISO 1250
