To Fujifilm, With All Sincerity

· 17.January.2024

One camera and one lens. 12 national parks, 7500 miles driven.

Sea-run rainbow trout always return to the place of their birth no matter how far they roam. Growing up, I always loved to travel and see new places. Being from a small midwest town and experiencing life in the big cities or different places still sticks out among my fondest memories. I have kept this same curiosity to travel as I became a parent and have made a point to hit the road or jump on a plane whenever possible. It was not uncommon for us to take a multi-day car trip with a toddler in the backseat. This allowed our kids to grow up being seasoned travellers at a young age. I have always carried a camera with me and recently, have only carried one. This allows less fumbling with gear and more being in the moment.

In 2018, we took a trip to Europe and my only camera was the X-Pro2 and a 35mm lens.  After that trip, even after owning Fujis since the first X100 in 2010, I realised how capable these cameras are. Those photos have made prints, books and framed art pieces and continue to be some of my favourites throughout my years of photographing.
