My New Awesome Partner: Fujifilm USA!

It Happened!

It’s official. I’m now in partnership with Fuji, as an X-Photographer. I’m completely honored, thrilled and !

You can check out my new bio page on the Fujifilm USA website by clicking here or on the photo below (La Conciergerie by the Seine in Paris, taken with my X-T10 and 16-55 lens):

It all happened so fast… yet feels so right.

As an artistic tool, Fuji cameras align perfectly with my view of the world; the way I see it & how I want to experience it. In fact, the bar has been raised to delightful new levels!

As a company, Fujifilm does much the same for me as an artist and an entrepreneur. I’m super stoked about the possibilities, which we’re just beginning to explore.

What It Means… And Doesn’t Mean

What it all means is that I have a wonderful (miraculous & magical) opportunity to take my vision to new levels. I really do “have a dream”… and it involves bringing hope, inspiration and tools to people for whom “living your life as if it WERE your art” is just the “Aha!” they need to unlock FREEDOM in their heart, soul and to experience of the light around them in new and wondrous ways.

What it doesn’t mean is that I pester, pressure and constantly yap at you to buy a Fuji camera because of a financial kickback. The ‘usual’ thing is to receive a bit of $$ every time someone buys whatever it is you’re talking about. It’s called “affiliate marketing” – and I’m totally on board with affiliate partnering as a rule. But I’ve chosen NOT to go that route here. I’ll be working with Fuji directly… creating opportunities, developing content, speaking and other cool stuff. Who knows… we might even have a few giveaways and contests around here!

I LOVE hearing Fuji success stories… or heck, ANY story you want to share! (I read every single word you write in the Comments.) So share those… and I’ll feel free to enjoy them for and with you, not wonder if you bought your camera through me.

That said, I’m not dissing affiliate marketing! In fact, I really DO hope you sign up for a SmugMug subscription with this link and get 20% off (BEST place to host your photos!) or click this link purchase a Macphun product with the code: KHUTT to get 15% off. You’ll get something awesome and I’ll get a few pennies.

But I wanted my Fuji deal to be independent. It just feels better to me that way.

Coming To An Airline Magazine Near You!

Know what else? This ad will appear in the September issue of Delta Sky magazine AND the October issue of United Hemisphere! I’m super stoked! Reaching out to travelers and folks who are going places and doing things is on my Top 10 list of cool things to do.

Images To Relax By…

Finally… breathe with me.
When I get THIS excited, I need to step into relaxing space… like a redwood forest… and let it all sink in and balance.
Ahhhhhhhh…

It’s a 19-shot panorama in Felton, California, taken with my Fuji X-T10, 16-55mm lens, Really Right Stuff tripod – BEFORE I got my ripping new pano head and gimbal. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Worked out just fine. 😀

What is more glorious than light in a forest, beams dancing through redwoods like some etherial ballet, setting the bark aglow? On this day, I felt like I was literally breathing light. Deeply. It's not the same as being there, but I took 18 shots for this panorama... hoping that the spirit of it would embed itself and make it to YOUR eyes and heart. :D

And while we’re breathing, here are a few more, all taken with my fabulous Fujis…

The Abbey, Mont St-Michel, France. Raining, warm, steamy. Dodging tour groups. Moments of serenity, of being shown magical moments in between the clatter. I live for these moments. Where it's crazy all around, but not where you stand.
