The Fujifilm XF 18mm f2 R was one of three lenses released in 2012 alongside the Fujifilm X-Pro1 (the other two being the 35mm f1.4 and the 60 mm f2.4 r macro). It was one of the first lenses I bought for my X-Pro2 and I often pair it with my 35mm f2 R WR. […]
About Barry Forshaw
"Hey, I'm Barry. When I'm not hiking up the fells on a pre-wedding engagement shoot, or photographing a teary groom seeing his bride for the first time on their wedding day, you can find me editing photos in the office of my bungalow in Newcastle. My 18 month old son George will be on one knee and my 4 year old daughter will be running around my feet asking me to 'talk Woody and Buzz.' I'll be trying, and failing, to multi-task as well as my wife Alicia who will be dealing with a work issue over the phone, putting on a load of washing and booking in her next tattoo session online while listening to the Distillers. We both love music and have been to Leeds music festival countless times over the years. When I met Alicia I realised that my life could be extraordinary and that I could pursue my dreams. I became a husband, a father and quit my job to become a full time wedding photographer. Wedding photography allows me to scratch my creative itch like nothing else. There's the emotional ups and downs of the day, there's the adrenaline buzz of capturing fleeting moments that can never be repeated, there's the travel and meeting new people. I love mixing adventurous, climb-over-a-fence-and-risk-the-wrath-of-the-farmer-to-get-that-epic-sunset-shot with 100% pure documentary photographs of the father giving his daughter away."
