Born in New York and now currently residing in Boulder, Colorado, Ladzinski has traveled across all seven continents in pursuit of adventure and image making.

In this video, Ladzinski takes us behind the scenes in the field and into his creative process, all with the new Nikon Z 6 mirrorless camera. One thing that Ladzinski highlights in this video about the Z 6 is its size and weight. Especially for outdoor photographers, these two factors can make all the difference when choosing a camera and gear to bring into the field. The Z 6, like other mirrorless cameras now on the market, is an excellent choice for outdoor photographers because of its lighter weight and size as compared to a bulkier DSLR.
Personally, I've been thinking of diving into the mirrorless world for a while now. I've been shooting with Nikon cameras for my entire life, so I wasn't dead set on switching to Sony right away, plus I'm not a huge fan of Sony's color profiles. I decided to be patient and wait for Nikon to release its own version of a mirrorless camera. Being a photographer who primarily shoots in the outdoors, the size and weight alone of the Z 6 is enough for me to pick one up. Plus, the internal stabilization, accurate viewfinder and 4K video capabilities are icing on the cake. Watching Ladzinski apply the Z 6 to his own workflow is now the push I needed to make the jump and purchase the Z 6.
