Meet up with Ricardo García Vilanova – 2020 World Press Photo Awards Winner / FUJIFILM

Fujifilm meet up with Ricardo García Vilanova 2020 World Press Photo Awards Winner. Below is a summary of the interview

  • WPPI is the most reputable photo contest in the world
  • The media isn’t really interested in Iraq anymore
  • Ricardo García Vilanova got involved in Iraq because the story was being ignored
  • There are no tips to give about how to stay safe in a very dangerous situation like covering Iraq
  • In a warzone everything is chaos
  • Being lucky is very important
  • Equipment is an essential tool and for Ricardo it is the X-T3
  • X-T3 is amazing because it is little and fast
  • Before he had a big camera and people would see him
  • X-T3 is strong and waterproof (it’s not waterproof just resistant)
  • 10-24mm is Ricardo’s favorite lens and the only one he uses
  • His subjects tend to be very close
  • If you’re 20 meters away you the people are distant and it is a different feeling
  • If you shoot people wide they are close to you and it is a different experience
  • He has an X-T3 in his bag and what looks like an X-T30 for if the X-T3 has issues
  • The Photography industry is different now because everyone has phones with cameras on them
  • Every person is a photographer in the world
  • Before the difference between the professional and the amateur was clear but now not so much
  • You don’t need a big camera with a lot of lenses to do a job like photojournalism
  • All you need to do photojournalism is to be close
