What camera should I use as a beginner?
Honestly, these days there are so many choices, which can make it confusing and overwhelming.
Kenya with the Fuji XF 16mm, f/1.4
I have been waiting for this lens since it showed up on the Fujifilm Lens Road Map. A 16mm f/ 1.4? That’s a lot of light!
Fujifilm Instax SP-1 Photo Printer
Opening so many doors with people to photograph this should be considered a must have for any photographer traveling.
The Human Form Divine
It’s a kind of law that may very well be unbreakable. It is what I call, “the law of the the human figure.”
Dear beginner, you make ripples!

Depth of Field Podcast
Depth of Field is a podcast hosted by me, Matt Brandon. In this podcast I interview working photographers from around the world and try to uncover what was it that help them get o where they are today. Listen as I converses with respected photographers from many different fields and uncovers what it took for them to be successful. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and listen to the photography leaders tell us secrets and stories of their journey.

“I truly love Matt’s perspective on photo story telling. I’ve been looking at other photographers that are very skilled, but seem to have a very different goal. That of taking a beautiful photo over telling the story of the moment. In my mind you must have both good images that tell a story. That is what Matt is great at.”
“Matt Brandon really knows his stuff, and has been in the photography game for several decades. He’s been traveling to India for many years now, where he leads photography workshops that look like amazing experiences. He’s strong in all aspects of travel photography but if I had to pick one area you could really learn from him it would be portraits, you can see a lot of feeling in his work here.”
