1. What Genre Of Photography Do You Specialise In?

I am specialised in portraits and weddings, but I also love travel and street photography for fun. 

2. Why Do You Like Using The XF35mm Lenses?

I use it for everything, it's my main lens. My all around lens. I think that the 50mm Full Frame equivalence is always the easiest lens to be made, and the one that usually you have the best optical rendition. I like this range because you have almost zero distortion and image compression.  

3. What Do You Like Photographing The Best With Your XF35mm Lens/Lenses? Why Your Choice?

Portraits. With the Fujinon 35mm I have closer minimum focus, so I make beautiful close ups with this lens.

Why Your Choice?

Because it is light, it is small, and it can be used for almost all the work I make. 

4. Do You Shoot Professionally With The XF35mm Lenses?

Yes, all the time. On portraits I prefer this lens more than the 56mm, and on weddings I prefer the 35mm than the 23mm. 

5. Fuji XF35mm F/1.4 Or Fuji XF35 F/2? Why Your Choice?

f/1.4 for sure. 

Why Your Choice?

It is the best lens Fujinon X Series lens in my opinion. I love the sharpness and bokeh.

6. How Often Do You Reach For Your XF35mm Lens/Lenses?

It is attached to my X-Pro2 all the time. 

7. Could You Live With Just An XF35mm Lens In Your Photography Bag?

Yes, I do that, more and more. 

8. Do You Like To Use Available Light Or Studio Light With Your XF35mm Lens/Lenses?

I can work easily with both, but I prefer natural light. 

9. What Fuji-X Camera Body Do You Prefer To Use The XF35mm Lenses On? Why Your Choice?

X-Pro2. It is the perfect combination

Why Your Choice?

With the X-Pro2 I have all the potential of this lens in my 24 megapixels files. 

10.Do You Have Any Favourite Photographs Using The XF35mm Lenses?

Yes I do and will share some within interview. Alternatively, Mateus Lunardi Dutra, is a friend who makes beautiful and sensitive work shooting women using the XF35mm lenses.
