Dubai :: Day 07

March 11, 2012 | Misc. Photos

Day 07 in Dubai was PhotoFriday at GPP. Gave a few talks and headed to Kushti wrestling. The Fuji 35mm 1.4 is the lens to have for the X-Pro1 IMHO.


x100. As much as I love the X-Pro1, the x100 is still my baby. I’ll never part with it.


Bobbi Lane, Gregory Heisler, Claire Rosen, and a bunch of dudes I don’t have links for.


David Burnett is a bad ass photographer. cc: Dan Depew, Cary Norton, Michael Sebastian, and Jon Canlas. That’s an f2 lens on that SpeedGraphic. #NoPolaroid #Ninja



One more day of teaching stuff to post then off to India for the rest of the week. I’ll be in Mumbai then heading home. I miss Meg and the kids so much. As excited as I am about going to India for the first time I’d really love to be jumping on a plane right now to head home. It feels like I’ve been gone for a month already.

I’ll have a full X-Pro1 run down on my blog after India.

    Zack, I think you’re making everyone jealous. And if I turn too green (with envy) – RAWR…!

    Shame the X-Pro 1 has a focal plane shutter. When will they finally create a small system camera with leaf-shutters? I’d be sold on that.

    “and a bunch of dudes I don’t have links for.” LOL.

    Awesome shots!

    The guy in the pink shirt… fourth photo down… what is he doing?

    Mumbai is a wonderful and overwhelming place. I can’t wait to read about your experience there and see your photos.

    I am having a Newcastle as I read this post. Keep up the updates!!!!

    I am seriously ashamed to have known so little of David Burnett’s work. Makes me want to sell all my photo gear and instead invest in books and prints of the masters instead. Beautiful photos of yours though!

    I can’t wait to see your full review. I’ve already got my pre-order in, in two places. :) I can’t decide if I want to cancel the second order once the first ships, or sell the second camera once I get the first… =D

    Nice shots, I thought these were from India. Does Heisler still shoot film? I’d like his t-shirt :)
    It’s nice to see David Burnett in action. I hope he posts some of his shots online somewhere.

    Here’s my Speed Graphic + Aero Ektar rig, it’s a joy to use:

    This is what is called rotten luck….I am from Mumbai but I am not around….tearing my hair now :(

    Wish I was there! Thanks for the updates Zach, and thanks for continually introducing us to other amazing photogs!

    Hi Zack, i like your work very much, a lot inspired by you. I am very amazed that you are coming to INDIA, I wanna meet you man please let me know if you are coming to Delhi

    Zack…it’s always a pleasure to have you here in Dubai. Take a balloon ride with Megan for your anniversary!! The guys who went on the desert ride said it was great. I’ll forward you some shots when they come in.

    Hope Mumbai was everything you wanted it to be & the belly is none the worse.

    Take care & really great to see you again.


    x-100 & x-pro1 shots have a real immediacy to them – you get a sense of spontaneity even on the posed ones. You can make ’em both sing a tune….raw-ish & powerful.

  • Zack said on March 14, 2012

    @Brendan – Thanks man! And thanks for understanding why I didn’t accept your awesome offer. :) See you next year!

    @ mike Fuji isn’t going to release a leaf-shutter on the fuji x pro 1 because they’re losing way to much money repairing x100’s leaf-shutters.
