Finding Inspiration in Collaboration

Great photography takes the viewer on a journey, sometimes to a world we know but from a new perspective. Sometimes that journey is to a place of wonder and fantasy. Fantasy is a realm Hasselblad Ambassadors Kevin Then and Sails Chong specialise in.

Using the Hasselblad X1D and H6D-100c, the work that Kevin & Sails produces invokes a strong sense of fantasy, romance and wonder, utilising breathtaking locations and advanced lighting techniques to create images that have a striking cinematic and other-worldly quality to them.

Rafael Rojas | Timeless

“In a digitally oriented world, I want to honour more than ever the existence, presence and permanence of the photography art book. I endeavour to create books with soul that delight all senses and are destined to be collected, enjoyed and cherished for many generations to come”

Hasselblad Master (Wildlife, 2014) Rafael Rojas explains the creation of ‘Timeless’, a photography monograph awarded as Best Fine Art Photography Book 2016 in the last IPA International Photography Awards and with a Silver Medal as Best Monograph 2016 at the Px3 Prix de Photographie de Paris.

Guide d’achat | Moyen-Format

Moyen-Format Nouvelle Génération
L’hybride monte en gamme

Pour le moyen-format, 2016 est une année révolutionnaire. Le cap des 100 MP est franchi par Hasselblad et Phase One grâce aux prouesses des capteurs Sony montés sur leurs reflex respectifs H6D et XF. Puis, coup de théâtre, Hasselblad et Fuji annoncent tour à tour des hybrides MF à visée électronique, et promettent les 50 MP pour moins de 10 000 €. Alors que le Pentax 645Z à 8 000 € faisait jusque-là figure d’exception, va-t-on assister à une progressive démocratisation du moyen-format ?

Valerio Vincenzo | Mastering ‘digilog’ photography with his CFV-50c

Dedicated film user Valerio Vincenzo moved into the digital age recently when he paired a Hasselblad CFV-50c back with his vintage 500C cameras for a job that focused on travel by train.

ValerioVincenzo06aFor all the advantages that digital can offer over film there is still, for many photographers, something special about the feel of an older Hasselblad camera. Netherlands-based, Italian photographer Valerio Vincenzo thoroughly enjoys working with his vintage 500C and 500C/M models, which are still capable of delivering excellent professional-level results.

ValerioVincenzo06bHowever, he was tempted recently by the opportunity to combine a state-of-the-art CFV-50c digital back with his much revered cameras to create a set-up that allowed him to continue to work with his kit of choice while bringing his whole workflow up to date.
