Who Are You?

My name is Aaron Bieber (no relation to Justin, seriously). Aside from being a part-time traveling fine art photographer, I do a bit of freelance, and I also build websites (for a living). My colleague Chris Blake and I travel and teach photography workshops and I’ve been writing about photography on this blog for several years.

Technical Mumbo-Jumbo

Some people are obsessed with technical details.

My first DSLR was a Canon EOS-10D, which I later upgraded to the EOS-5D. Eventually I took the plunge into pro gear and moved to the EOS-1Ds Mark III, which was the most money I’ve ever spent on a camera body.

After a few years shooting the 1Ds Mark III, I got really tired of carrying it around, so I sold it, and all of my Canon lenses, and switched to the Sony Alpha NEX-7.

I shot the NEX-7 for a few years again until my impatience with Sony to create a proper successor to that model overcame me and I once again took the plunge into the Sony Alpha a7 II, which is the full-frame mirrorless model.

Aside from its weight, I like it a lot, and I think I’ll keep it for a few more years before considering a switch.
