My name is Fabien Butazzi. I’m half Italian, half French and I currently live in London. My current job is Head of Design for Europe in an International IT services company. Used to be a DJ, the first Italian male Food-blogger, and probably too many other things…
I had a Nikon equipment years ago, then decided it was taking the fun out of my holidays to travel with such a heavy and cumbersome equipment. I sold everything (but one lens) and started travelling light with just my iPhone and a compact camera with a decent zoom. During my trip to Iceland, I found myself still happy with the quality of my images, except at night and under the Northern Lights (obviously). Then my friend had an X-T1 and allowed me to play with it… saw the quality, the weight, etc. and completely fell in love with photography again.
Jumping a couple of years, I now feel like I’m again enslaved by tech stuff, but at least Fujifilm allows me to still travel light-ish and enjoy my time around the world and in my city.
You can find me on Instagram as @fabienb (and pretty much everywhere with this nickname, unless it’s an old account and then it’s probably koan or koandj -my DJ alias-).
I’m also a Fujifeed patron, and I would recommend everyone to support Samuel and get involved, because his work and this community are very much worthwhile.
Looking forward to meeting you all and enjoying my time here.
