Marc Hauser is one of the world’s most renowned portrait photographers, and he has a history of being on top of, if not leading, trends in the industry. Prime example… Marc was one of the first photographers to move away from film and embrace digital imaging, but he is also not one to sacrifice quality for the sake of being trendy. He just recognizes when better technology emerges that allows him to more efficiently product the breathtaking images for which he’s famous.
In the video above, MC Contributor and Hybrid Photography Pioneer “Coach” Will Crockett (HybridPhoto.pro) takes us on a tour of Marc’s studio and discusses the equipment and techniques that Marc is adopting, and you guessed it, Marc’s going mirrorless.
My 2 Cents
As one of the Hybrid Heroes on HybridPhoto.pro, I’ve been blessed to work alongside some of the industry’s best, many of whom are now shooting with mirrorless camera systems. So, I’m not surprised to see a guy like Marc Hauser get on the Hybrid bandwagon. But I also know that Marc is a results oriented guy who doesn’t change for the sake of change. He’s enjoyed a long and highly successful career and the main reason is simple… his images are simply the best.
3 or 4 years ago, Marc wouldn’t have been able to make the switch he’s making today, but the imaging technology that’s built into today’s mirrorless cameras has allowed him to not only adopt a new format without sacrificing quality, it also allows him to streamline his workflow and save time on his shoots.
Marc’s camera of choice is now the Panasonic Lumix GH3, and we can’t wait to see the delicious images he’ll produce with his new system.
