Arguments rage over the merits of the ‘2 major systems’ – Canon and Nikon. The truth is, they are both very powerful, top quality kit. It depends on the intended work. For assignments you view on this website, the Nikon system is excellent. It is rugged, versatile, with top quality optics. After a great deal of research and testing, we chose Nikon for its brilliant optics, ruggedness, and total reliability.

Manfrotto tripods are great for this type of work. Relatively light weight, very stable, with an excellent range of heads.

LowPro camera cases and bags are hard to equal. If you are lugging valuable camera equipment about through hostile environments, then Lowpro quality and capability will deliver maximum piece of mind.

PRODUCTION: All images are digital, and processed through a workflow utilising Adobe Lightroom  (LR4) then Photoshop (currently CS6 Production Suite).  Libraries are backed up with further storage off-site. Maxtor 1Tb drives perform this operation well. The computer system is PC (currently operating Windows 7 64 with an Intel  CPU E5 2690 @2.90 Ghz X 2 processors (32 core) / 36 GB DDR3 RAM) and 2X128 Gb Solid State Drives (Raid 0) backing up to a 2Tb High Speed internal drive. This combination (as of July 2013) allows workflow processes to happen uninterrupted, without frustrating ‘bottleneck’ delays, or ‘out of memory’ messages. However, beware! ALWAYS back up as you work. Raid 0 data is not easily recoverable! Post production editing utilises an NEC MultiSync 2690WUXi monitor calibrated regularly using NEC spectraview software and and Spyder 3.

Like all computer systems, while it is leading edge today, it will be hopelessly antiquated in 12 months time! Field editing and storage is accomplished using a Toshiba  notebook.

PRINTING: Both colour and B&W printing is by way of an Epson PRO 3800 Printer. Utilising K3 inks onto either Harman Gloss FB Al or Ilford Gallerie Smooth Pearl fine art papers, maximum colour dynamic range, lustre and brilliance with 100 year archival qualities are valuable characteristics.  Fine Art prints are supplied to client specification in sizes up to A2+, ready for framing.
