HOIANA SUNRISE SHOOT OR HOW WAKING UP EARLY WORTH IT

Well, hello everyone!
It's Artem, the photographer for Enzo Creation and today I'll give you an idea what it's like to wake up early in the morning and why it's worth it.

 It's 4am. Jonathan, Pablo, Anna and I are on the way to Hoiana entertainment complex. You will not believe, but when you wake up that early you don't feel sleepy! (Well, some of us still needed a coffee)

On location

First of all, we started with the shooting of Hoiana construction site. In future, this complex will have several huge resorts, a fancy casino, the greenest golf course, shops and lots of other different kinds of entertainment. But even though the construction is not finished yet... it looks impressive. You realize it even clearer after you see it from the drone camera.

SUNRISE

And here we come to the culmination point of the photo shoot. On our way to the beach through all the constructions, we already knew it's gonna be one of those rare stunning sunrises.

And here is the reason why you should wake up that early. No picture can describe what it's like, to see a sunrise like this. It charges you with energy and a good mood to the rest of the day.

 In conclusion, I have to say, I'm not gonna wake up every weekend so early. But all of us definitely should do it once in a while to remind yourself how beautiful is the world around us.

Sony A7RIII First Video Test coming from Fujifilm XT2

Sony A7RIII First Video Test coming from Fujifilm XT2

Yesterday we had an important shoot in Hoi An and I bring along the Sony A7RIII with the 90mm 2.8 Macro with us to see how well it would perform in a real life documentary style use. I couldn't spend more than 30 minutes on the edit and grading of this video since it has been done during our lunch break.

Sony A7RIII vs the Fujifilm XT2: Time to change?

We are currently building a photography studio for a client in central vietnam and based on their requirements we recommended to buy 3 x A7RIII even though we are big fujifilm fans :D The necessity for High Resolution, Full-Frame body and above all, the ability to shoot tethered using Capture one pro made the recommendation a no brainer.

What a day!!! After rushing from Laguna Lang Co shooting the Golf Legend Lord Faldo here I am taking a flight to Phu Quoc to shoot the stunning Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort!

What is the ideal video length for facebook?

What is the ideal video length for facebook?

I had some insights about it thanks to our statistics but after reading a dozen of different articles/stat reports it appears that the best video length for FB is between 30 to 60 in term of social engagement. Across all the stuff I've read here is a very well written article that gives you pretty much all these useful stats that might help if you market your products or brand on facebook:

The making of Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort (Part1)

Last week I had the chance to fly to Phu Quoc in Vietnam to make a video of the soon to be opened Premier Village Phu Quoc Resort managed by Accor Hotels and what a surprise!!!

Looking through the airplane window upon your arrival on this stunning island, you'll soon realize what the hype is all about. Crystal clear waters, Large forests, beautiful weather (felt even better coming from Danang where it's been raining and grey for the last 2 months).

Before anything else I’d like you to know that you gave me 2 incredible years. We started with literally nothing, just you, I and our love for adventures and challenges. You never let me down, (well, apart from that time I didn’t give you enough juice at night 😀). You taught me so much, gave me the opportunity to defy those who once said “you’ll never make it as a photographer” and to answer to that, you brung home a total of 125.000 USD for the past 2 years.

Fashion Shoot with the Fujifilm XT2 and firmware 3.0

Fashion Shoot with the Fujifilm XT2 and firmware 3.0

Yesterday we had a great photoshoot for Yaly Couture (local Hoi An based company) in our new studio location. For the entire shoot I used the Fujifilm XT2 with the latest firmware 3.0 tethered to a 2017 Macbook pro running both X-Acquire and Capture One. It was the first time I entirely relied on the Fujifilm system for a commissioned job as I usually use the Nikon D750. Here are the pros and cons I experienced during the shoot
