p.1 #2 · Jerry Ghionis Switches to Nikon


Cool article. I don't know many famous photographers by name so I didn't know anything about him going in. Most impressive thing to me was he won the D3s and 24-70 and kept it on the shelf without even trying it heh. I guess that's the difference between him and most of us here - it's about the photos not the latest and greatest gear heh [edit - though I guess the whole point of the article was that having a camera that could see in the dark does make you a better photographer as you would get shots you couldn't imagine before because of the ISO difference]

Another thing that popped out to me was him saying the D3S was the first digital NIkon camera that beat the Canon outright (as he heard from others) but I was always under the impression that the original D3 was the game changer.

Who? Seriously though, photographers use what works for their market. I don't know anyone billing big $$$ that does not have multiple systems including MF or even renting gear when necessary.

Meh, good photographer, he's got a great portfolio, but his reasons for not liking the Mk4 just seem a bit contrived to me..."because it's not full frame" ? Seriously?

Maybe he meant "because my focal lengths / FOVs are altered" but phrased it differently.

Regardless, best of luck to him.

Like someone at maybe Luminous-Landscape said (unsure the author), but nobody 'owns' photography, so people swapping to whatever brand fits their fancy means not an iota to me.

I do like the guy's portfolio, though...he's got some fairly complex shots in his roster.

No kidding. I don't think I would have made it home without pulling it out for some test shots.

Nice shots, but when you read the blog he does not come off as a knowledgeable professional. At lease IMO.

But wouldn't all of those been shot with a Canon? Maybe the gear really doesn't matter.

Who knows? Maybe I've finally moved past the gear head phase (well, not really, I love playing with new gear), but I just enjoy the shots for what they are -- well-taken and composed shots, not really interested in what gear took it. I guess yay if it were Canon or Nikon or Pentax.

Now, how he lit the shots, etc, I would be interested in, but I don't know if I have the creativity to come up with a lot of his poses, etc (that's okay with me, I'm not a pro photog).

Wouldn't shoot above iso 1600 with a 5D2? He must be strictly a jpeg shooter.

Looks like you are correct. Found this
online:

"Do you shoot RAW?

I shoot Jpeg. It may sound harsh but I believe that shooting raw is compensation for poor photography. It's like an accountant who doesn't know how to use a calculator."

Now I know why I shoot RAW.

He shoots JPEG so he can complain about hi ISOs on the 5D2.

Jerry might be very candid in his blog but he is one of the top shooters in the wedding industry.

I do not think anyone has won more awards (over 100!) than him!

His seminars at WPPI and other conventions sell out in a few hours!

I have attended his seminars quite a few times and he is one of the funniest, nicest, humblest person out there.
He has inspired me and I am sure a lot of others.

Everyone has there own reasons for what they do....to each their own. If someone came on to these forums and said they wouldn't shoot above ISO 1600 with the 5D2 they would get flamed. If he stated in his statement he does not shoot raw it would make a little more sense. His reasons for not shooting raw is completely close minded and ignorant.

The last seminar that I spent with Jerry, he mentioned that he shoots RAW...
That article is a very out dated and was written in 2006!

Regardless of whether he shoots raw or jpg, he produces images and albums that most of us can only dream of....
