Justin uses a wide range of Sony camera bodies and lenses to capture the diverse situations he faces, from extreme cold in Arctic Siberia to the scorching heat of Africa, from fast action to discreet street photography. He uses natural light to preserve the original ambiance. These unposed and untouched images offer a view of the world that is spontaneous, real and changing.

Justin uses photography to tell stories that matter. As a young journalist working for Reuters, he carried with him a Leica around his neck for street photography and a Canon SLR for physically demanding shots. Today, as a he finds the quietness, speed and quality of the Sony Alphas combine the best of all worlds for global assignments, whether they are street, reportage, portrait or video. He records sound using Sennheiser, Rode and Sony mics, and a Sony recorder. He has an editing suite for documentary film, photography and audio.

Justin was born in Hong Kong, now based in Brussels. See Justin's stories on www.justinjin.com, and his publications on http://www.justinjin.com/portfolio/publications/
