Quick Preview: Tumbling Waters Photo Shoot

This is just a quick preview of a shoot I did at Tumbling Waters Retreat a few days ago. I will post loads of BTS images, a BTS video and the final images over the week or so.

It was an awesome day and apart from the terrible weather everything went to plan, sort of.

We started at 6am so a big thank you to all involved for making it to Tumbling Waters bright and early. I know some of the crew had a fair way to travel and had to get out of bed at 3am!

Here are a few teaser BTS images… stay tuned for more!

Michaela Baranov and the Fuji X-T1

Although most of the images of Michaela were shot with the Sony A7s I did manage get a few in with the Fuji X-T1 and Fuji 1,2/56mm lens.

Click HERE to see Michaela and the Sony A7s and a list of gear used for this shoot. I would be interested to know which images everyone prefers… those shot with the Sony or those shot with the Fuji. Drop me a line and let me know.

My growing WISH LIST… Damn you Photokina!!!

Photokina hasn’t even started yet and my “wish list” is already out of control. I have been madly selling off gear that doesn’t get used often to make space (and funds) available to buy some new toys.

Here is my list so far. I am sure it will change (grow) over the next week so keep an eye out for “wish list” updates.
