What's in my Bag?

Nikon D4s

At £6,500 new we expect nothing but superb image quality, high ISO performance, fast auto focus and rich features. It packs a huge punch and copes with any situation making it integral to my sports journalism work.

I own two of these APS-C camera's which are equipped with the same AF system as the D5, Nikon’s FX flagship model. You might call this a jack of all trades as all round it delivers in sport, landscape, portraiture and much more. 

Sigma 120-300mm f2.8

Sigma 120-300mm f2.8

A high-end super telephoto lens with a versatile zoom range and a wide constant aperture of f/2.8, designed with sports in mind.

Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8

Holding the same superb quality as my further reaching 120-300mm, this lens allows me to work in tight spaces. Perfect for group shots and portraits.

Covering a wide focal length allows me to get those lovely wide shots to great portraiture. Usually hanging at my side I find it a great back up, capturing some great candid moments.

This is an absolute necessity for both post processing of RAW files but also the ability to send images to their destination very quickly.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud is a set of applications including Photoshop and Lightroom which allows me edit and enhance my RAW files. A must for any photographer.
