It has to be said that I love photographic technology, whether it’s cameras or computers. I often get a lot of emails about the kit that I use, as my approach became somewhat unorthodox when I started delving into the world of adapted lenses. Although I own an array of auto focus lenses, they are still not necessarily the right tool for the right job, so I my kit bag changes all the time as I shoot with different purpose.
I have always been a long term Canon user, as the bodies have always felt right in the hand. Being rather sentimental, I have never brought myself to sell the original Canon 5D, as looking through my library I am always reminded just how excellent the images are that it produces, and instead have converted it to infrared. The 1Ds3 was a huge step up in quality and now remains my number one choice of camera in literally all circumstances.
Although this looks like a goldmine of equipment, it’s all come about from one very important rule that I set myself at the start - I will not buy equipment unless it is earn’t from photography. Ok, the bags are the result of company sponsorship (to which I am so very grateful) but all the lenses, camera bodies and computers are bought with money generated from my business. It was ridiculously difficult at first.
Hover over the equipment to find out more.
