I am Michael Vacca
I am a photographer and web designer located near Washington, D.C. I started VaccaPhotography as a way to combine two of my passions, photography and web design. I enjoy a broad range of photographic genres including landscape, street, and architecture and I have fifteen years experience as a web designer.
My love for photography started when I was young and has continued throughout my life. My first camera was my father’s Argus C3 film camera, vintage 1955. He passed away when I was very young, so the camera has a special place in my heart.
I shoot exclusively with Fujifilm cameras and use their X-T20 model as my primary camera. From my experience, the quality and professionalism of Fujifilm cameras and lenses are exceptional.

I enjoy using older manually focused lenses with my Fujifilm cameras. These “Vintage” lenses have a look and feel that, in my opinion, modern lenses cannot match. These lenses may have their flaws by today’s standards, but I find the flaws add character. My collection of manual focus lenses includes the Pentax Asahi SMC Takumar 35mm f3.5, Minolta MD 50mm f2, and a Five Star 35mm-75mm MC Macro.
