I get asked quite often what i shoot with. So the following is what i carry in my camera bag.


Canon 6D Mark 1- I am very happy with my decision to go with the Canon 6D for my first camera. It is a very professional full frame Camera without the usual hefty price tag! It is weather sealed and is currently the smallest and lightest full frame camera on the market which really helps when doing long hikes!


Wide Angle

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM- This is my go to lens which i use 95% of the time. It is lightweight, weather sealed and is definitely a lens i would highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional wide angle lens which does not cost a small fortune.


EF 50mm f/1.4 USM- As a landscape photographer i do not use this lens very often however it is a great versatile compact lens which really exceeds with Portrait shots.


EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM – This zoom lens is quite new to me however i have found it very useful when i want to isolate a subject such as a tree or some rocks on the beach or zoom in on some rolling hills up in the hinterland.


I choose the Manfrotto Befree Travel Tripod prior to my recent trip to New Zealand. It is a great little compact Tripod which still extends to a height of 144cm. This made it perfect for the many hikes i did as it is very lightweight but still performs like your more heavy duty alternatives.


After doing a bit of research i decided to go with Lee filters due to many great reviews on its superb manufacturing quality and the fact it produces little if any colour casting. They produce a great range of filters from ND filters to their number 1 favorite child the big stopper. The big stopper is my favorite as it reduce the amount of light by 10 f stops which mean you can do a long exposure minutes in length. That gives the clouds that wispy  look and makes the water smooth where otherwise it would be choppy. For an example see the below picture taken at Lake Wanaka, New Zealand.
