About Me

Greg Virtucio

Hi! I am Greg Virtucio. Some people know me as GV. I use gvirtucio as my social handle.

I am a hobbyist / amateur photographer, a web host and a systems analyst based in Antipolo, Philippines.


I started with my photography hobby in 2008, with the Sony Ericsson K800. I really loved that phone, and it had an awesome camera.

My very first “real” camera was the Sony Nex-5R with the 16-50mm kit lens. I then bought a Canon FD 50mm 1.4 SSC, and I simply fell in love with it. This started my craving for manual lenses.

Manual lenses I have:

  • Canon FD 50mm f1.4 SSC
  • Canon FD 85mm f1.2L
  • Canon FD 70 - 200mm f4
  • Canon FD 135mm f2.8
  • Minolta MD W.Rokkor-X 24mm f2.8

Today, my everyday camera is the Sony A6000. Perfect size and weight for me. I have it with me almost everyday with my SEL 50mm f1.8. My cameras and lenses are:

Sony A6000 and A6500:

  • Sony E 16 - 50mm f3.5 - 5.6
  • Sony Vario-Tessar E 16-70mm f4 ZA
  • Sony E PZ 18 - 105mm f4 G
  • Sony Sonnar T* E 24mm f1.8 ZA
  • Sony E 18 - 55mm f3.5 - 5.6
  • Sony E 50mm f1.8
  • Sony E 55 - 210mm f4.5 - 6.3
  • Sigma 16mm 1.4 DC DN

Sony A7rII:

  • Sony FE 16-35mm f2.8 GM
  • Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f1.4 ZA
  • Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM
  • Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f1.8 ZA
  • Sony FE 85mm f1.4 GM

Fujifilm X-T1:

  • Fujifilm XF 18 - 135mm f3.5 - 5.6 R
  • Fujifilm XF 23mm f1.4 R
  • Fujifilm XF 56mm f1.2 R

Sony native lenses are what I use mostly nowadays, but I still use my manual ones whenever I feel like it.

I mostly shoot street, candid, landscape, cityscape or whatever I feel like capturing.

I post my photos at Instagram, gvirtucio, and my photography website and photoblog, GV Pix. Higher resolution photos are available thru my Flickr page with an Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons license.
