So, Cristian, my fashion photography buddy, has a Phase1 he uses to shoot with. It replaced the Hasselblad he had stolen from him some time back. His girlfriend (Ari, the apprentice stylist) said she was interested in getting into photography and Cristian asked me if I thought the 5D mkIV was the way to go. Of course I said, "no," as it's too much camera for a newbie. Two days later he's in the studio with not one but two brand new Canon 5D mkIV, a 50mm and an 80mm, Black Rapid straps and a slew of extra batteries.
Ari's never shot anything other than her cellphone and Cristian is tied at the hip to his medium format. What the... What a waste.
He does awesome work though. Check out cristianruben.com
