I always welcome the chance to second shoot weddings for fellow pro photographers. It’s a great opportunity to watch someone else work, support them in delivering great coverage to their clients, plus a chance to capture different types of images than the ones I usually am focused on nailing when I’m the primary photographer.

I’ve just returned from spending a few weeks in Vietnam and Thailand during which I gave my Fuji X-pro1 quite a workout. It performed perfectly, even in the middle of a rainstorm. Luckily, we had clear weather for our days in Ha Long Bay.

They’ve now released a 23mm prime that looks fantastic, but costs nearly $900.
Radical Face is one of my favorite bands, but like an idiot I missed them the last time they toured. This time I was front and center for a stellar performance at the beautiful Great American Music Hall here in San Francisco. Photos shot on the Fuji 35mm 1.4 on the X-Pro1.
