The pure passion and sensitivity of Isabel Ruiz’s photography

Isabel is the example of perseverance and the never-ending search for “the” photo. With a camera in her hands since she was a child, she finds in Phase One the definitive tool to express herself. Isabel travels the world with her XT, capturing unforgettable moments.   “Isabel’s work is recognizable by a sincere aesthetic, and at the same time full of subtle complexity, which encourages us to contemplate the scenarios that move the author. To achieve this requires exquisite photography from capture through post that allows all these emotions to be properly transmitted.” José María Mellado By Isabel I was born in Uruguay, lived in Spain during my adolescence, and am currently based in Peru. I’m a businesswoman but have also been passionate about landscape photography since I was a child. I always carried my camera to photograph nature – from the white sand beaches and deserts of Uruguay, to the mountains of Peru where I settled permanently. In 2010, I became more dedicated to my photography, alongside my business work. Now, I explore different …

Finding your story with the XT Camera System: Andrew Ling in Alaska

When we created the XT Camera System, we imagined it travelling to some of the rarest and most remote destinations on Earth, at the side of adventurous photographers. So when we heard Andrew Ling was taking the XT to Alaska, we felt it was like a dream come true. Andrew Ling is a travel photographer and creative producer based in Seattle, Washington. He likes to venture out in the wilderness and get himself in trouble, because that’s what keeps him and his creativity alive, bringing him in front of some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. Andrew didn’t always know he’d be a photographer and adventurer. He has a degree in Marketing, and grew up thinking he would end up in managing a business. However, his love for the outdoors slowly took over, until someone from Adobe noticed the pictures he’d been taking on his trips and sent him to Patagonia to visually document climate change. That was the point of no return for Andrew. Today, he works with brands like Adidas, the …

Extraordinary experiences: Photography as a practice of self-growth

Hong Zuo is a Chinese-American landscape photographer living between Boston and Beijing. After a chance encounter with photography on a hiking trip, Hong fell in love with what is now her favorite medium for self-expression, as well as a practice that helps her keep a healthy mind and body.   I don’t consider myself a professional photographer, although I am a passionate one. In fact, I have a career in accounting. Still, photography is not just a hobby for me, it’s a way of life – my way of evolving as a person. And I take it quite seriously as well. So far, I’ve published a best-selling Landscape Photography Album, I’ve exhibited my work in many cities, either in solo exhibitions or as part of international photo exhibitions, and I’ve been lucky to sign with the best photo agencies in China. In 2017, I was also honoured to receive the “Excellent Photographer Award” in the Pingyao International Photography Festival, the largest photo exhibition in China. Back in 2002, I had some serious health issues that …

Casting a new light on landscape photography

This month we launched a brand new camera system, one designed for photographers whose passion take them far and wide, to distant and spectacular places. The Phase One XT was created to be brought along on long trails and off-road scouting expeditions, just the kind that Reuben Wu, the newest Phase One Ambassador, likes to venture on. So we gave him an XT Camera System and sent him off to Bolivia, to capture its beauty in a light only he knows how to cast.   Capturing the beauty close to us Hi, I’m Reuben. People often describe my photography as “otherworldly”, and say the landscapes I capture don’t appear to be from this planet, but what I’m trying to show are truly “worldly” images of places close to us. We’ve been exploring other planets but have yet to see anything as extraordinary as the landscapes we have right here on Earth. So what I want to do through my photography is to renew people’s perspective of our own planet, to make the familiar appear new …
