How Garrett King Chooses Lenses To Translate His Perspective

Every creative has their own perspective and story to tell, and for lifestyle photographer Garrett King (@shortstache) of the Alpha Collective, the tools he uses are an important part of how he shares the way he envisions the world. “When I see a shot, I’m essentially picking a tool that fits that scene and I can translate my perspective into that experience,” he explains. When King recently went on a trip to Iceland with friends, he relied on a variety of G Master lenses to capture his perspective of the adventure.

See how lifestyle photographer Garrett King (@shortstache) of the Alpha Collective specifically chooses his lenses to capture the way he envisions the world.

“The 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G Master has been huge out here, especially with all these vast landscapes,” he explains. “It takes you to these environments when you’re not really that close at all.” He also often reached for the 50mm f/1.2 G Master, which he says is really versatile in all of his work. “Having that depth is just so clutch,” he notes. 

While in Iceland, King was not only on a mission to photograph a volcano, but on one to reignite his passion for creating. “For me, it’s easy to get caught up in wanting that next shot or the next beautiful sunset,” he says, “but I feel like all of those memories in between are what impact me the most.” 

“This trip has taught me that you can learn so much from having this intent to rediscover yourself and really dig deep to the things that you appreciate and find something in yourself that you’ve been looking for.”
