Camera Bag


Day to day I keep my gear as simple as possible but, to cover the range of subjects I know I’ll encounter and to work as fast and as efficiently as possible, I always carry two DSLR cameras, one with a 16-35mm or 24–70mm lens and the other with a 70–200mm lens. I only carry the tripod, 200-400mm lens and flash unit when I know I’ll need them for specific shots. All images are captured in the raw file format. My default sensor sensitivity setting is 100 ISO.

I take the same gear on every trip and it consists of the following:

  • Canon EOS-1D X MKII DSLR camera body x 2
  • Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L III USM zoom lens
  • Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II USM zoom lens
  • Canon EF 70-200 f2.8L IS III USM zoom lens
  • Canon EF 200-400mm f4L IS USM Extender 1.4X zoom lens
  • Canon Speedlite 430EX II
  • Manfrotto Pro Protect filters (permanently attached to all lenses for protection)
  • Hoya Pro1 digital circular polarising filter
  • Gitzo G1228 carbon-fibre tripod with Induro ball head (I photograph landscapes, cityscapes and interiors, where possible, on the tripod; everything else is hand-held)
  • SanDisk 128GB & 16GB Extreme Pro CompactFlash memory card in each camera
  • Lenovo Laptop Computer with 14 inch screen loaded with Adobe Lightroom 6 workflow program
  • Samsung T3 500GB portable SSD x 2
  • Lexar Professional Dual-Slot Memory Card Reader
  • Ona The Astoria shoulder bag, which holds everything except the tripod and 200-400mm lens
  • Peak Design Travel Backpack 45L for carrying gear onto planes and when trekking
  • AquaTech Sport Shield rain covers
