Equipment List

Fundamental to any shoot is a comprehensive, reliable kit. I am proud to have all of my own equipment and I carry spares of almost everything. As an electronics engineer previously I take maintenance seriously and carry out PAT testing in-house.

Whichever cameras I bring on a shoot, you have full access to my lighting and support kit. Much of this is included in my rate, but I may make a small (pre-agreed) charge on some extras or where a large amount of non-standard kit is requested. Please note that items marked * are not normally kept in the vehicle and should be requested before the shoot.
