Kase Ambassador Interview – Greg Whitton
Want to know a little more about our ambassadors? We asked them some questions.
Q1 – Tell us a little about yourself and your achievements?
I’m Greg Whitton, a semi-professional landscape photographer based in the Midlands. I’ve been offering workshops across the UK since 2015, concentrating on mountainous and upland areas. I occasionally do talks at festivals, camera clubs and photographic societies. Amongst other awards, in 2015 I was named Outdoor Photographer of the Year. Over the last year I have been steadily building a channel and following on YouTube, offering a variety of location-based videos, as well as discussing various photographic topics including post-processing and compositional techniques.
Q2 – What’s your photography style?
I specialise in mountain landscapes and have in recent years adopted an almost exclusive portrait style, working with complex compositions and really ‘working with the landscape’ in which I am standing to convey a sense of place.
Placing extra glass in front of my lens is going to degrade image quality, which is why that extra glass has to be of the very highest quality. Kase filters are so good in respect of clarity, colour neutrality, and flare control, I can always achieve my intended goal.
Q3 – What equipment do you use?
I use a Sony a7Riii and a mix of lenses, although preferring a Canon Tilt-shift. I use Kase filters when the scene demands it and sometimes, I blend exposures. Again, when it comes to support, I sometimes shoot handheld but often prefer to slow things down by using my Gitzo tripod and hybrid geared head to absolutely refine my compositions.
Q4 – Why Kase Filters?
I love using my Kase filters when they are needed. Ultimately, I want to achieve the maximum image quality I can. Placing extra glass in front of my lens is going to degrade image quality, which is why that extra glass has to be of the very highest quality.
