My Hong Kong Neon Project with CineStill 800T: Film Is Still Alive


Welcome to BHT Hong Kong Neon. If you've been following me for a while, you know of my many travels and film photography projects in Hong Kong. I was recently interviewed by  @TheCooph  talking about my Hong Kong Neon project, and I was featured as the cover article for Silvergrain Classics Magazine from Germany, again featuring my neon project. I shot it entirely on  @CineStillFilm  800T and various film cameras, but mostly with my  @LeicaCameraUSA  M7 and 28mm Summicron.

 Andreas from @RivianOfficial  Spaces Vancouver recently reached out and asked if I would be interested in exhibiting anything at their Brentwood location. I pitched my Hong Kong Neon project, and he was happy to help me showcase this project. Please join me on February 8th, 2024 from 6-9pm for my first solo exhibition featuring my project Hong Kong Neon. Please register here:

Thanks to everyone who helped me over the years to make this project possible. Thanks to Camera Film Photo for processing, scanning, and storing all my film; and Cinestillfilm for providing me with the film for this project. Thanks to  @chrismeetschris  and Ryan Savella of Arcade Original for your video footage from Hong Kong. Finally, thank you Rivian Spaces Vancouver for sponsoring this project and exhibition. If this exhibition is successful, we may take it on the road. If you wish to be a sponsor or help in any way, please contact me directly. Thank you and happy shooting!

Talking with Swedish Portrait Photographer Knut Koivisto at Fotografiska


My conversation with Swedish portrait photographer Knut Koivisto in Sweden. Last year I had the privilege of attending the Fujifilm X Summit and Fujikina in Stockholm, and I bumped into Knut on my way into the venue. He already knew me from Youtube, so he treated me like an old friend. I guess us photographers are like that sometimes. Thanks for the portrait Knut, and thanks for letting me capture yours.

First Look: Billingham Mini Eventer vs Wotancraft Scout.


This is my third Billingham review, and my first chance to review one of the 'normal' bags, the Mini Eventer. However, calling the Eventer series normal isn't quite accurate. It looks similar to the Hadley series, but this is Billingham's take on a premium shoulder bag. The first thing you'll notice is the leather bottom of the Eventer bag. Then you may notice the lack of branding except for a small green label on the side. You may even notice the chunky SP50 shoulder pad and non-removable shoulder strap. What's up with this bag? 

If you currently have a Hadley Pro Small or Hadley Pro 2020, is it worth 'upgrading' to the Mini Eventer or the standard Eventer? It depends on what your priorities are. Since I don't have a Hadley to compare against, just for sizing, I decided to compare it against the popular Wotancraft Scout. It's similar in size (it's slightly bigger) and functionality. The design languages are very different, so I don't think photographers are comparing these two bags.  This is just my first look at the Billingham Mini Eventer, so wait for my full review, as well as my What's In My Bag series.

REVIEW: Fujifilm GFX100 II + GF55mm f/1.7 R WR.


It took me a while to finally edit this video, but here it is. What are my thoughts on the new GFX100 II? It's an amazing camera that I personally don't need for my professional or personal work. Perhaps one day I'll need it, but not at this time. However, if you do need a high resolution camera with top end lenses, the Fujifilm's GFX system might be right for you. If you do commercial work, wedding photography, or even commercial videography, the new GFX100 II is a camera capable hybrid digital medium format camera.
