My Gear


  • Canon EOS 5Ds
  • Untitled photo

My Cameras are all Canon and include a much loved EOS 5Ds which I predominantly use for landscape, macro and some bird photography, it's incredible resolution at 50+ megapixels never disappoints, together with the robust weather seals it has proven to be almost bullet proof. The CMOS sensor has the best colour rendition I have found for my style and of course an almost limitless supply of EF L series glass!

I have recently replaced my aged 6D with a stroll into the mirrorless world and the EOS R series R6. This has proven itself already and I have to say the AF accuracy and speed are a complete game changer, especially the eye-detect for birdlife. I am still learning what this camera can do and the unique additions to opportunity proved by the Canon mirrorless system.

  • Manfrotto 055 Carbon fibre tripod
  • Gibal head for tripod and long lens
  • Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash gun
  • Remote camera release and interval timer

I use a Manfrotto 055cXPro 3 carbon fibre Tripod and cable release for long exposures. I have added a Promaster ball-head and a Gimbal head with Sunway L Brackets on both camera bodies and never leave home without a set of extension tubes which were picked up on-line for a very reasonable price but add so much more capability to otherwise stunning Canon L glass. Lastly a rarely used but non-the-less mandatory "flash"; a Canon 580 EXii Speedlight.
