As a professional photographer I choose my kit very carefully. I want to achieve the very best results possible across the whole photographic process, from capture to print. These are the companies I have chosen to work with as I continue to build my portfolio of landscape photography.

Since starting out in 2005 I have been a Canon user. The cameras deliver fantastic results and the controls are intuitive and do not provide any barriers that may hinder the photographic process when working under pressure. The 5D range was a pleasure to use, perfect for landscape photography and it allowed me to get the very finest still images. My 'L' series lenses produce superb images that are sharp and beautifully coloured. Used in all conditions, the weather sealing on the pro spec cameras and lenses is extremely effective and they have proved to be hard wearing and consistent. My kit gets plenty of use, often in conditions that are far from ideal. Canon's reliability makes them a winner every time! I currently shoot Canon R5 and a backup 5D MkIV camera. Lenses include the 16-35mm f2.8L mkIII, 24-70mm f2.8L mkII and the 70-200mm f2.8L mkII, a new TS-E 24mm mkII tilt/shift lens and the small, but fun 40mm pancake lens!

 

For my prints, which are so important to me, I use Canson Infinity fine art papers. These papers are groundbreaking, even today as Canson contnue to engineer products that will allow photographers and art makers to innovate with the very latest offerings. New matt papers offer a pure white with no OBA's anda traditional 'hand-made' feel, and the gloss media is simply stunning, inlcuding a baryta paper that ia also free form OBA's yet delivers a pure white. I trust Canson with my reputation, if you are a printmaker then you really should check out the papers at the Canson Infinity website.  

 

I choose LEE Filters for all of my landscape photography. The LEE filter system is flexible and easy to use out in the field and all LEE filters are all hand dipped for the best possible finish. Wide angle adaptor rings fit very close to the camera lens, minimising any chance of 'vignetting' due to the filter holder being visible when looking through the lens. The filter holder itself has a great 'click on' fitting that allows for easy positioning and repositioning of the filter during the shot. Various creative filters such as the Little and Big stoppers used for long exposures open up lots of possibilities for creative photography. Their new 'MEDIUM' range of ND Grads are a fantastic addition to their range and allow for more precise filtering of skies when the 'soft' or 'hard' filters don't quite give the control needed due to the position of subject matter in the composition.These filters are essential when balancing exposure values within a scene. I could not make my images without them!
