A little technical info for those that are interested. I'm a registered Nikon Professional User, and use high quality equipment for all of my work.

I use only Nikon dSLRs - currently, I use a 12mp Nikon D300s, but older work was taken on a 6mp Nikon D50


- Nikon 50mm ƒ/1.8 - Fast prime lens, great for use in low light or for portraits
- Nikon 35mm ƒ/1.8 AF-S - Fast prime lens, great for use in low light or for portraits
- Sigma 10-20mm ƒ/4-5.6 EX DG HSM - extreme wide angle lens, great for landscape work or quirky, distorted portraits
- Sigma 28-70mm ƒ/2.8 EX DG - my every day lens, useful for landscapes but best suited to portraits
- Sigma 70-200mm ƒ/2.8 EX DG HSM Macro - fast telephoto lens, great for wildlife, tight portraits or detailed work
- Lensbaby Muse - approximately a 50mm field of view, but on a wacky, bendy mount to give really distinctive out of focus areas. A specialist lens used only for effect (but the effect is great when done correctly)
