Canon 5D Mk111 with a Canon 5D Mk11 as my backup camera. Plus a wide range of Canon lenses and accessories from 15mm fisheye to 500mm telephoto. I also have a 90mm tilt-shift lens which is really useful for controlling depth of field in studio tabletop work and for architectural photography. In the studio I use mostly Elinchrom lighting equipment. I also use a Hosemaster fiber-optic light painting system. My 900 sq.ft studio and office are very well equipped and my computers and laptops are all high-end Apple Mac Pro running Photoshop CC & Adobe RAW. Every image is meticulously retouched and corrected to the highest standards. I make a continual investment in new technology and have a 100% digital workflow.
Favourite subjects:
Worldwide Travel, Wildlife & Nature, Science & Technology, Medical, Food & Drink, Ideas & Concepts, Architecture, Business, Flags, Industry, Macro. I also now shoot Video clips.
