I’m often asked what equipment I use.   Here is a list of what I currently use.  I think its a good balance between cost and performance.


  • Canon EOS 7D
  • Canon EOS 50D.   The 7D is the main camera, the 50D is backup or used as a second camera with an alternative lens


  • Canon 300mm f/4 IS L – a 300mm fixed zoom lens with image stabiliser
  • Sigma 100-300 f/4 EX – a zoom lens covering 100-300mm
  • Canon 24-105 f/4 IS L – a zoom lens covering 24 to 105mm
  • Canon 50mm f/1.8 – a 50mm lens.  Good in low light


  • 2x Canon 580EX II Speedlights
I also use Manfrotto monopods and tripods.  I have some studio flash equipment.   Processing is done on Apple computers.
