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
