When I don't photograph, I...:
Spend far too much time in front of the computer, either tweaking photographs or doing real work, and far too little time traveling the world.

My Gear

Canon EOS 40D

Great size and great handling. Oh, and pretty decent image quality too.

Canon Speedlite 430EX


Tamron 28-75mm Di

Quite a handy travel lense: sharp, light, incredibly compact and f2.8

Sigma 12-24mm EX

Good, solid wide-angle, can be used on full-frame cameras too. Virtually no barrel distortion, which is pretty amazing considering the angle of view.

Canon 100-300mm

Old and clonky, but the optics are sharp and the build quality is decent. I hardly ever use a tele lens, but it's always useful to have one lying around just in case.

Photoshop Lightroom 2

Powerful editing capabilities, the local and gradient adjustment capabilities in version 2 are pretty impressive. It's also great to do everything in one place; file management, processing, an excellent printing module and equally versatile web capabilities.

Manfrotto 055 Tripod

A basic but incredibly solid and durable tripod that will never fail you. I use it with a large 3-way head that gives great precision, even for macro work.
