About me:

In 2005, after a long career as a classical musician, I decided to turn my long love story with photography and with the Earth into my business. A BIPP Qualified Associate Landscape photographer, I love to travel our wonderful planet to portray it and share its beauty shooting Landscapes for my Fine Art Prints collection. I have been shooting in the American South-West, Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man, UK, Italy, France and Turkey and my work has been exhibited and published internationally. A teacher for 20 years, I always have been passionate about sharing knowledge: teaching Workshop is the best way for me to share my enthusiasm for photography and for the Earth with like-minded people. When I am not in the field, I enjoy working on assignment, shooting mostly architecture and people.

  • Hello Godfrey, the WATE is a great, legendary lens with many advantages over the Voigt 15mm III, starting from the 3 focal lengths in one, of course. The Voigt, on the other hand, is smaller, ...

  • Actually, Sigma has 3 DP Merrill cameras with 19mm, 45mm and 75mm FOV equivalent - all without an EFV, but all possible to use with a VF (optical one). Best, Vieri
  • Second that - the DP Merrill where little cameras with great IQ, slow as molasses and made nearly unusable by SPP. I also used the SD1 Merrill for a while, great camera if you have a lot of time ...
  • Very very good work as usual Louis! :D Thanks for sharing, best Vieri
  • After reviewing it on the Leica SL with the S-Adapter L, I reviewed the Super-Elmar-S 24mm f/3.5 on the Leica S (Typ 007) as well. You can see the article here: LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-S 24MM F/3.5 ...
  • Check out the Arca-Swiss P0 Monoball, it has a genius inverted design with the ball below the head, a genius tightening mechanism which gets rid of left / right handed design, you have one ring ...

  • Sure thing, all feedback is always very much appreciated to make the viewer experience as good as possible. Btw, the pop-up comes out only once on a page. Yes, I got an S but not a CCD one; I have ...
  • Daedalus2000, I am glad you enjoyed the article (and the others too!). Yes, the Vario-Elmarit at 24mm is extremely good if you ask me; I think that the results speak by themselves, the only thing ...
  • I just published a review of the Leica Super-Elmar-S on the Leica SL, adding as a bonus a comparison with the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL at 24mm. Enjoy! LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-S 24MM VS LEICA ...
