Intro by Skip Cohen
So often we see a photographer promoting a particular product and think we're only hearing about it because that's their job. Well, if you're one of those people who spends time being skeptical, read what Rick Gerrity has to say about Panasonic's LUMIX family in an email he sent me below.
Rick has been a published, professional photographer based in the NY/NJ metro area for over 25 years. A quote on his site pretty much describes his work in just one sentence:
"I specialize in people, product, location and subculture photography throughout the US and Canada and I have a passion for transforming seemingly ordinary, everyday moments into extraordinary images."
What a kick to be able to work with Rick and the Luminaries and keep sharing some outstanding work. Interested in seeing more of his work - check out his website.
I started using Lumix cameras before mirrorless when the 4/3rd's system was first announced. So when the Lumix G1 was introduced as mirrorless I jumped in, long before the Lumix Luminary program.
I use the Lumix G series cameras because they work for all my specific needs, such as low light and slow hand held shutter speeds. Oliver Stone and Baz Lurman were photographed on the G1!
For those who think I use Lumix G series cameras because I get paid to do so are very wrong. The link to the biker blog I sent in the previous email was from 2011 and all shot on the GH2.
The small size and fast glass allows me to carry lots of lenses, spare bodies, video rigs and a boom mic. My Biker photos attached are all made on the GH3 and GX7 available light. I love what I do and I will keep moving forward with all the new technology that LUMIX can produce.
The small high quality G Series cameras are also a great conversation piece and icebreaker.People always ask what kind of camera is that? Lots of my Biker friends are very interested in photography and the small size allows them to fit in the saddle bags on the bikes.
