CANON 5DS With­out a doubt my favourite cam­era is the canon 5DS. The qual­ity is amaz­ing, and the ver­sa­til­ity, weight and bal­ance of the cam­era makes it just the best. I have used medium-for­mat cam­eras in the past but I find them to be a littl too cum­ber­some.


LENSES My go-to lens would be this canon 24-105mm, though I’ve also got a canon 24-70mm f2.8. I pre­fer work­ing with the 105 be­cause of the depth of field op­tion. I also love us­ing my sigma art lens 1224mm f1.4. It’s fan­tas­tic for shoot­ing fash­ion and nudes, and it’s a ra­zor­sharp lens.


21ST CEN­TURY TRI-FLECTOR i use this in most of my shots. It has the abil­ity to fine-tune re­flected light to the nth de­gree which in turn gives to­tal light con­trol in the shad­ows and high­lights.


LIGHT­ING in the stu­dio I tend to use the Elinchrom 500 ELC Pro and Style RX 600 flash heads. I also have some older 1K packs, which are ex­cel­lent be­cause they are fit­ted wiath a 650watt halo­gen bulb, en­abling me to shoot a lot of tung­sten.


LIGHT MODIFIERS one of my favourite light modifiers is the Elinchrom octa 170cm. The equal­ity and light spread of this unit is ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful. it’s es­pe­cially good for fine-art nudes as it pro­duces a crisp, clean light. I also add a 100cm Elinchrom strip light on a small floor stand. This fills in shad­ows from the waist down whilst the Tri-flector give us these beau­ti­ful catch­lights. It also fills dark­ness un­der the nose and chin ar­eas.
