My gear

My photography equipment is based around a selection of Canon digital cameras and lenses. I chose Canon because at the time (in my opinion) they provided more natural looking colours than the competition. Nowadays other manufacturers such as Nikon, Sony and Olympus all provide top quality equipment capable of taking first class images.

I have part exchanged a couple of lenses and a 1D MkIV for a Canon 1Dx MkII and also purchased a 35mm F1.4 L MkII.

My advice to anybody starting out would be to visit a few specialist dealers, handle the cameras and ask the dealer questions. Also search the web for independed reviews and join your local photography club. Buying the wrong equipment can be an expensive mistake.
