I am currently using a Nikon D7100 having upgraded from the D7000 which I now hold in reserve. The main lens is a Tamron 18-270 mm f3.5-6.3 which I find is both light and versatile. I also have a Sigma 10-20 wide-angle lens for landscape images, a 120-400 mm f4.5-6.5 for long distance work  and a Nikon 50 mm f1.4-16.0 for portrait type shots.

For occasions when I want something smaller and more transportable, I have a Sony A6000 with a 16-50mm power zoom lens. I also have the Sony 55-210mm f4.5-6.3 lens for longer work.

For processing, I use Photoshop CS4, the Nik Collection of filters; Imagenomic Noiseware and Photomatix. The starting point is always using raw files. For printing, I use an Epson R2880.

Support equipment includes a Manfrotto tripod and a Velbon monopod - both in carbon fibre for lightness.  I generally use a Really Right Stuff  BH40 ball head with the quick release lever clamp - an amazing piece of engineering which while being a bit pricey is worth every penny. With this I use a Kirk L plate which allows easy flipping from landscape to portrait while on the tripod. I have a spare Kirk plate for the D7000. I also have two Manfrotto heads in reserve.

When I am travelling, I am using the Nexto DI Nexto Extreme storage device to regularly back-up my SD memory cards for added security.

You may have seen some audio visual work in the Themes Gallery. For this, I have been using ProShow Gold.
