My Gear

Over the years, I have had the opportunities to different piece of equipment that helped capture some of the images in this site. I have tried to build a kit that is flexible enough to do several genre such as landscape, widlife and nightscape.
For the UK, I’ve linked to Wex who I believe to be a better supplier of photography gear than Amazon. Most of these links are affiliate links so if you click on a link and make a purchase then I receive a small commission.

Please let me know if you are having trouble finding the item you are interested in.
