Lebackpacker Shoots with Sony

Johan Lolos, AKA lebackpacker spent the last year travelling and photographing New Zealand. In an interview with Stuff, the 28-year old Belgian offers some well-said advice:

Post high quality pictures. Stop posting photos taken with a smartphone, and use a DSLR or a good mirrorless camera for all your images shared on social media,” he says.

Agreed! Except on occasion, the photos shared across social networks are all high quality and from the A7R Mark 1 or 2 and the RX1R II. Lolos also says he shoots with a Nikon D750 and a Sony A7II using Tamron lenses, like the 15-30mm 2.8, 24-70mm 2.8 and 70-200mm 2.8. Here’s one of his most popular photos.

Sigma: The wait is over. Shop e-mount primes.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more gear recommendations in our shop.
