My Equipment

In reality it is not the make, quality or cost of a camera and lenses that is important. It is the photographer behind the camera and whether, or not, they have the ability to use the equipment in a way that portrays their vision to the viewer of the image.
However, for those who are interested, I list below the equipment I am currently using.
