  • Here's the kit bag! Stocked full of camera's, lenses, batteries and memory cards. The 2 camera's shown are the Canon 5D Mkiii and Mkii, my main wedding cameras. Not shown (taking the picture) is the new addition to the family, Fujifilm X Pro1 (see below).

  • Here are my 4 Canon 'L' lenses. The 'L' denotes they are the flagship in terms of build, water sealing, sharpness and overall glass quality. From the left is the 'nifty fifty' ideal for use in dark rooms, churches where no flash is allowed. Next up is the 16-35 zoom, useful for larger groups and also some pretty funky shots where some artistic post processing comes into play. The third in the line is the 24-70 zoom, its an all rounder on a wedding day, if the truth be known you could cover pretty much everything on a wedding day with this one lens (the other lenses are really specialist lenses with specific jobs to do). The last is the 'big fella' and is just such an incredible medium to long zoom lens. Ideal for portraits, or for getting in close from a distance without being too intrusive.

  • Here's my top camera. The Canon 5D Mk 111 (I have 2 of these for weddings). 22.3 megapixel, beautiful in low light, great colours, just a fantastic wedding camera. This camera contains TWO memory cards, each picture is saved twice, once to each card in turn for extra contingency.

  • The new recruit - the Fujifilm X-Pro1 is retro styled but packed with up to date technology. Great for low light and detail photography but also handy when the 'big boys' are not welcome. A wedding camera in it's own right but for now a helping new member of the team. A super new edition to the kit bag and a handy 'third' camera to cover all contingencies. packing a punch with 16 megapixels
