The Rig: Olivier Duong

Posted on July 10, 2014

 Who are you and what’s your profession? Hey, my name is Olivier Duong, I’m a Haitian-French-Vietnamese dude born and raised in Haiti. Profession? I’ve tried to get a job many times with other shooters and all, I’ve went so far as to design a whole ebook for someone, explaining point by point how I could help their business, I never got anything! No call, nothing. I was getting nowhere, so much so my wife told me she felt bad for me. So, tired of asking, I decided to go in business for myself.

Who am I? Simple – I’m a lucky person. I have my family and some very special friends, I have a job and it’s one I love (I lead Accenture’s UK government relations program) and I have photography. So I call myself a photographer with a wonderful day job. I’m also a trustee of a London-based human rights charity, the Helen Bamber Foundation (helenbamber.org) – a very, very special organization named after an extremely inspiring woman.

The Rig: Jorge Ledesma

I currently shoot with Fujifilm X-Series cameras: the X100S and the X-Pro 1 as I believe they offer the right mix between image quality, portability, and the “ninja factor”. Prior to this I shot with the X-E1 and X100 LE as well but I always had a soft spot for the X-Pro 1. After I acquired the X-Pro 1 I wanted parity between my files so I ended upgrading to the X100S

The Rig: Othman Kammah

Posted on March 23, 2014

Who are you and what is your profession? My name is Othman Kammah but everyone that knows me calls me OT. I am a Business Analyst by trade and a Photographer by passion. I spent most of my life in various parts of the Mediterranean. Morocco, Spain, and France to name a few. Toronto, Canada is where I currently live with my wife, our pup, and our kitten. After having grown up shooting film with my father and eventually stopping for no particular reason, I got back into photography over the last few years. My other passion is music and I have been playing guitar for as long as I can remember. Both photography and music have had a heavy influence on shaping the person that I like…

My name is Brian Dunlea. I’m a portrait and landscape photographer, but I dabble in street photography as well. I’m not a professional and I’m very new to photography. I started in January 2012 with a view to starting a songwriting site. I’ve been a drummer/singer/guitarist since I was 15.

The Rig: Donovan Bond

Posted on March 7, 2014

Name’s Donovan Bond. I live in Toronto, Canada with my wife Melissa, and 4 cats. My last job was as a “Senior Art Director” at a marketing agency. I would typically hire photographers rather than actually be one, but I was always the one who’d shoot parties, events, and employee headshots.
