You probably know Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo or Aquaman. But did you know he’s also a big fan of Leica cameras? In a recent post on his Instagram, he revealed his impressive collection of Leica cameras. And what’s more – it seems that he’s working on a special project with the company.

Momoa says that Leicas are “one of his addictions” aside from guitars, bass guitars and Harley Davidson motorcycles. In the video above, you can see him show off his collection of Leica cameras and lenses, covering models from 1930s all the way to the digital Leica M10-D and M Monochrom.
The actor mentions a project he’s working on with Leica, but doesn’t give more detail about it. In his post, he mentions people like Leica Ambassadors Mathieu Bitton and Dennys Ilic, as well as Leica Camera Director of Marketing Kiran Karnani. And Lenny Kravitz, too, a famous musician and Momoa’s a fellow Leica enthusiast.
Since Momoa doesn’t give more detail about his upcoming project with Leica, I’m not exactly sure what it’s gonna be. But in the meantime, maybe I could update the list of famous actors who are into photography because he apparently belongs there. : )
