I am Ole Spata a documentary photographer based in Hannover, Germany.
After my education as a photojournalist at the dpa (German Press Agency) in Berlin, I studied photojournalism and documentary photography at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
I divide my time between client work (magazines, newspapers and companies) and personal projects. Therefore I work in various countries all over the world.
One of my projects that you can see here is the increasing mass tourism worldwide.
I use a variety of different equipment for my jobs. My studio is full of tripods, flashes, colour filters, different backgrounds, GoPros and a DJI Drone.
But the most important aspect for me is to be movable with my gear. That’s why I am using Fujifilm.
Everything that does not fit in one bag stays at home.
In 90% of my work I go with this setting:
