Photographic Equipment

I will try to not give too much space to the ins and outs of the equipment I use, sufficed to say I learned very early on in my photographic journey that you only get what you pay for and to that end I invested in, what is in my opinion, the best cameras and lenses from the Canon range.



My current Equipment List for Landscape and Wildlife Photography consists of:

Canon EOS 1DX Digital SLR
Canon EOS 1DX Digital SLR
Canon 17-40mm F4 L IS USM
Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM
Canon 100-400 F4.5-F5.6 L IS USM II
Sigma 150mm IS F2.8 Macro
Canon 400mm F5.6 L USM
Canon 600mm F4 L IS II USM
Canon 1.4 & 2 times tele converters
Canon Extenders 12mm and 25mm
Canon MT-24 EX Twin Lite Flash
Canon Speedlite 530 II x 2
Canon Speedlite 430 II x 3


For ancillary items such as tripods and heads I again invested in what I believe to be the best for my type of photography and the job in hand.

Gitzo 3541 LS Carbon Fibre Tripod
Manfrotto 190 Pro B Carbon Fibre Tripod
Really Right Stuff BH55 Ball head
Wimberley MK2 Gimbal Head
Manfrotto 694CX Carbon Fibre Monopod
