So today marked a big day for the photography industry in the UK. It was the first day of the inaugural Photography Show held at the NEC in Birmingham.
Last year when everyone heard the news that Focus on Imaging was to end, everyone’s heart were heavy and no-one was quite sure if this was a sign that the imaging industry might be on the decline. However, when it was announced

Damien Lovegrove left his role as a cameraman and lighting director at the BBC back in 1998 after 14 successful years to create the renowned Lovegrove Weddings partnership with his wife Julie. Together they shot over 400 top weddings for discerning clients worldwide.
The X100 rekindled my creative soul and made me fall in love with picture taking again. I saw a prototype of the X100 in a glass cabinet at Photokina back in 2010 and I knew my life was about to change. Photography is my life. It’s my release. I love to see and capture beauty in people in a freely expressive way. I create my pictures from scratch. I control the light and I direct emotion.
Nick has been a professional photographer for over thirty years during which time he has worked in must area’s of photography from journalism to fashion, commercial to fine art including owning one of the largest commercial studio’s in Scotland he now enjoys passing on his knowledge through teaching photography from his home in the north east of Scotland.
I now use the Fuji X System exclusively, operating an X-Pro1 and two X-E2s. Teaching with the X System also has its advantages as many students believed that good results could only be achieved from high end DSLR’s so when they see their tutor using this type of equipment it’s easy to see why but now with the Fuji X System they can get the same results from a camera well within the budget of most photographers coupled with the ease of use and the compact size it makes the X System the obvious choice.
Patrick Stubbs is a photographer based in Lincoln, in the heart of the UK. He photographs people and places, professionally and for love. His personal project for 2014 is to document his whole extended family using the X-Pro1.
The first camera in a long long time that I really have fallen in love with – photography is suddenly fun again!
I can travel with high quality camera gear in a very manageable bag! Fantastic quality jpegs, low light capabilities, the lenses available, and the way it blends into the background makes the X-Pro1 the perfect all round camera for me.
Nick Palliser is a documentary and portrait photographer based on the South West coast of England.
He is also a photography teacher and runs University classes on the Business of Photography and Location Fashion Photography.

I am fortunate to have the use of many types of camera at my fingertips, yet my tools of choice are the Fuji X cameras. I am a print photographer and as such quality is paramount to me and the X-Pro1 and X100s never disappoint !
When wearing out shoe leather as I do, the weight and ergonomics of a camera become very important. Not only do the Fuji’s provide the quality, their form factor makes working with them for many hours at a time, a joy.
I just got back from documenting a destination wedding in Montego Bay Jamaica, and I can’t help but think that the Fujifilm X cameras have an enormous potential to be incredible wedding cameras. I have been shooting exclusive with two X-Pro 1′s + an X100s for the past year and I have gotten to know these cameras quite well.
They are a joy to work with, I love them but this past week…
