About
I am just a regular guy who loves taking photographs of interesting places and cultures. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a good amount of time traveling and I genuinely wish I will be able to keep on exploring this beautiful planet of ours. I live in Israel with my wife and 3 kids and I’m always on the watch for my next adventure.
I solely rely on my Fujifilm gear for my projects. Except for the Ethiopia album which was taken with the GFX 50R, the rest of the pictures currently on the site were taken with either the X100 or the X100S with a fixed 23mm lens (35mm full frame equivalent). I also own the X-T2 and a variety of lenses which I use to take pictures of my kids.
