Photography is a great hobby for those that love gear and love to get geeky about the latest offerings from manufacturers. It’s also increasingly a great hobby for looking back too – and reliving and reviving some of the equipment of yesteryear.


I’m no different, and have a range of cameras and accessories from the latest Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM to a (growing) collection of film cameras such as an Olympus A-1, and a Canon Canonet Half Frame. And my latest obsession – drones!


For serious project work, I typically shoot with the following;

Cloudy Day







Canon 5D MKII with;

  • 24-105mm f/4 L
  • 50mm f/1.8
  • 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM
  • 85mm f/ 1.8
  • 100mm f/2.8L macro


For more creative stuff, I also have;

  • Lensbaby Spark
  • Samyang 14mm f/2.8

When I’m out and about;

Panasonic Lumix TZ-60_spiral Cow and web

Great zoom range and some very nice creative features.

Also shoots full manual and in Raw format.

I took my old G10 and had it professionally converted to Infrared – takes some great images.


LeafSony Xperia Z5

Favourite apps include; Snapseed, Pixlr, Vignette, Hypocam and Mirror Lab.
I’m not an Apple person, I love Android. I’ve also tried just about every photo app going and have narrowed it down to the few listed.


Film Cameras

A growing collection, much to the annoyance of Mrs C;

  • Lomo Russia Day Limited Edition (pictured at the top)
  • Self built plastic TLR that takes 35mm film
  • Olympus A-1 rangefinder
  • Agfa something or other
  • Canon Canonet (in need of some TLC)


Too numerous to mention here, but the usual collection of flash guns, tripods, monopod, some filters. Also a home lighting studio with three strobes and a background stand with black, white and green screens and several printed backdrops.

Numerous light modifiers and softboxes, strip softboxes and two umbrella boxes (80cm and 120 cm) these are great with a flash and so quick to set up – highly recommended.
