Why do you love photography?
I enjoy capturing moments and memories. To me it’s almost the same as composing a song: the whole experience of going into something and not knowing exactly what the outcome will be. Instead, I enjoy the creative process and excitement of anticipating the result.
What made you switch to Fujifilm and when did this happen?
The only cameras I have ever used have been Fujifilm, my first camera being the X-A1, then the X-T20 and now the X-T3, which is my main workhorse.
What do you love most about the camera?
I love how user-friendly the cameras are and the different film stimulations, but mostly I enjoy the size, usability and pleasing aesthetics of the cameras.
Tell us a bit more about your photography and what you would like to achieve through this.
I enjoy street photography and candid moments the most – there’s an adventure to not knowing what you are going to get on the day. I also do portraits and weddings as Hein Takes Photos and would love if I can see as many places and meet as many people as possible through my photographic journey.
