Fabien Voileau

Hi, my name is Fabien Voileau and I am a surf & lifestyle photographer based between Auckland, New Zealand and Paris, France.

More than a photographer, I am a nature lover and a part of the Change Makers Community supported by Patagonia. I started to shoot underwater 5 years ago with a Nikonos 5 / with 35mm film. Not really easy, but I learned a lot from it. My gear kit has since been updated of course : ).

Below is a description of my gear:
Canon 5D Mark IV – Super fast and reactive camera, perfect to shoot action shots with. A bit heavy but whatever, I’m so used to shooting with the 5D series from Canon that I change my settings without having to look at the camera, and the main thing is to shoot with a camera that we know more than very well.

Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 – My favorite lens for all conditions. I can shoot super close like 3 feet and sometimes far enough to shoot something really different.

Sigma Art 24mm f/1.4 – I like using this for wide, underwater shots.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L – I use this most of the time to shoot from land, and I do different frame construction with tree or whatever.

Aquatech water housing ELITE for 5D Mark IV – Perfect gear to shoot in the water with and to get access to your settings. Itโ€™s super important to get access to the aperture and shutter speed.
Itโ€™s also super safe.

Other miscellaneous gear:
Flippers DAFINS Pro Model
Wetsuit Patagonia Long John
