Medium Format System
As a Fine Art Photographer and with my images potentially being printed as huge scale prints, quality is everything and this is why I choose medium format for 80% of the work I do, I made the transition in 2014 and have never looked back. The quality and size of image exceeded my expectations and using this system is the right choice for my photography
Each of my bags has a purpose and they enable me to carry my camera equipment and lighting around in very situation, be it an abandoned building or travelling to the other side of the earth, I have great quality Lowepro bags that I know I can trust to keep my equipment safe. My bags have got my camera down a 110ft free climb down a slate cliff to and underground cavern, they have been tossed over and under fences and across lakes to reach abandoned locations where a bad bag could have meant the end of my equipment.
Having a good tripod is essential for my work, I work in dark locations and need to use long exposures, a sturdy tripod is important to create sharp, good quality images, I trust my 3 Legged Thing tripods to do this job, they are stable and light weight and extend to great heights and get really low down.

For my Underworld series I use Lowel continuous lighting to add drama and effect to my photo, I try to replicate a film like quality to my work and so using these lights is perfect for this cinamatic approach to model photography.
I use the printing services at Foto Speed, they have an amazing team ready to help and a great selection of papers, offering incredibly competitive pricing, I use their Platinum Etching 285gsm which is stunning.
