Photographer Joshua Kane lives the dream of so many photographers. He gets paid to travel the world, photograph weddings for clients, and in some ways lives a creatively enriched life because of it. But Josh tells us that doing destination wedding photography these days is a ballsy move, and because of it he only shoots 10% of the time and 90% of his time is spent editing, booking clients, negotiating, marketing, etc. While that doesn’t sound so fun for an aspiring photographer, it is a reality. When you combine this with Josh’s goal to give every single wedding client unique images (and the amount of work that he puts into it) Josh is in many ways still challenging himself creatively.

We talked to him about destination wedding photography, the challenges, the clients, and how he started out.

Photographer Simon Chetrit has been shooting for many years now, and he’s almost never seen here in Brooklyn without his venerable Pentax 67. Simon has used the camera for many years and bonded with it in some ways. Every photographer has a camera that helped them build their career, and his is the 67. Simon tells us that the camera helped him develop confidence in himself and get over shyness when interacting with strangers on the streets.

Like many other modern film shooters, Simon loves the fact that shooting film forces him to put more effort into the photo before he even presses the shutter.

Photographer Mark Wallace recently switched from using Canon DSLRs to the Leica M as his primary camera kit. While many videos like this have been long and thorough, they spend much less time focusing on gear and more time on feature sets–with the most famous being Jason Lanier’s.

Wallace talks about how he is replacing lots of the zoom lenses in his Canon kit with small primes. For example, the 16-35mm f2.8 L is being replaced by the Leica 21mm f3.4 and his 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM II is being replaced by a 135mm prime. He spends a lot of time talking about weight and size–specifically in regards to how it affects him when he is travelling as a photographer. Wallace cites situations where he is wearing over 60lbs of gear and needs to run for a subway or a cab–which can sometimes be all too much of a reality for NYC photographers.

The majority of the video talks about the gear with only the last couples of minutes getting to the real meat of the deal–and could have been cut down tremendously to just focus on the nitty gritty. Mark explains that in a place like where he is in Brazil, DSLRs can get easily stolen. But a Leica rangefinder on the other hand is ignored somewhat. Indeed, rangefinders can be very fooling and are much more low profile except to those that actually know better.

Mark Wallace’s video for AdoramaTV is after the jump.
