Professional Equipment

I am a Wedding Photographer based in Adelaide, South Australia. I do travel for weddings. Here's a list of my current professional equipment. Starting with 3 Canon full-frame camera bodies, 1Dx, 5D2 and 5D3. (1ds2 retired) Normally, I use 2 leaving 1 as a backup. 5D3 is really amazing with acceptable and usable ISO up to 6400. As a wedding photographer, I can't stress enough on the need of backup camera bodies/lenses that are equivalently good.

Below: This lens Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II is a superby sharp lens among the 70-200 series. It's one of my bread and butter lens. It's very heavy but worth the weight. Most of the photos on this page are taken with this lens.

Below: This Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM zoom lens is a ready good lens for my commercial and event photography. The flexiblity of zooming from 24mm to 70mm is a joy!

Below: I use this Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM lens for my holiday. Love the flexiblity to zoom from 24mm to 105mm and most importantly is the weight. It's lighter than the 24-70 f/2.8L.

This Canon 35mm f/1.4L USM is my favourite portrait lens where space between my clients and I are limited. Ultra sharp at 1.4.

I purchased this Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 when I was using a non-full frame camera. Now, I only use this lens at 16mm on full frame. One of the widest and fastest lenses, it is faster than Canon 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 lens.

My flash system. I was not keen on firing flash before I made the move into these wireless radio flashes - Canon 600EX-RT. I got 2 of the 600EX-RT and currently triggering them using the Canon ST-E3. Works very well wirelessly. Previously, I used my 580EXII's infra-red focus assist beam more than firing of flashes. Well, the photos on these page are taken using these flash unit.

Below: KATA bag 3N1-33 - I have another Crumpler bag but this is where i keep my equipment. The paddings are awesome. It has a laptop compartment but i have never used it. Keeps everything I have secured and safe.

Below: This is an awesome gem. Capture Camera Clip system by Peak Design. I always have one clip on my thick leather belt, with another one on the KATA bag. Due to the weight of the 1ds2, I only use this system on the 5D2 and 5D3. Great way to switch camera bodies while on locations.
