I use equipment that I believe in and has served me well over the years.

I have a Nikon body, D300. I see no mileage in updating this at present, as it has proved to be reliable, robust, and produce excellent visual reproduction.

I use a carefully chosen selection of lenses to suit all requirements from proven manufacturers such as Nikor, Sigma & Tamron.

To supplement my imaging equipment I use manufacturers such as Bembo, Manfrotto, and Nikon.

All my images are printed in-house using Epson photographic printers and I can produce prints up to & including A3 (420mm x 297mm). I use the finest papers and pigment inks for a lasting print.

Images are shot in RAW format unless circumstances prevent this. Shooting in RAW format allows the maximum amount of information to be recorded with no loss of image quality.

I use Apple computers and professional software to manipulate images, as I believe they give the best results (others may disagree!).

All manipulation & reproduction equipment is regularly calibrated using professional equipment to ensure continuity of results.

If you want to know more, then please ask and I will be only too happy to help & advise.
