Camera Bag

Bodies - All of the images on this site were produced using a Canon 10D, 20D and 40D digital SLR's with the exception of a few old film shots from Canon A2 and EOS-3 bodies. I converted to digital in April of 2003 and have not regretted it for one minute. Not only is it more fun and easier to shoot and produce digital images, but I swear I get images with digital that I could never get with film.

Lenses - I use Canon L-series lenses and have the 17-40mm f4L zoom, 28-70mm f2.8L zoom, 70-200mm f2.8L zoom, 300mm f4L IS, and 500mm f4.5L.

Tripod - I almost always use my Gitzo 340 tripod with Kirk BH-1 ballhead when shooting unless it is just not possible.

Accessories - I often use the Canon 1.4x teleconverter on the telephoto lenses, Canon 550EX flash and Canon electronic cable release. The only filters I use are a circular polarizer and a 2 stop soft graduated ND filter. I also almost always have my Hakuba double bubble level on the camera. On occasion, I use a hand-held Sekonic L-358 Flash Master light meter for ambient and flash exposure measurements.

Digital - I use several SanDisk 1Gb CF cards and a 100Gb Hyperdrive Space for image storage in the field. At home, I use two Maxtor 250Gb external hard drives for image storage (one primary, one backup).

Camera bag - I fit all of this and a few other misc items into a Lowepro Photo Trekker AW backpack with a modified carrying pouch on the side for the tripod. It will all fit into the overhead bin of most airliners and I've never been denied to carry it on. In the field, it's too heavy for me to carry very far, so I enlist my wife to carry two of the smaller lenses in Domke lens pouches.

Prints - Prints up to 13x19" are made on an Epson 2200 printer with Ultrachrome ink and normally I use Epson's Premium Luster photo paper that provides ~71 years of lightfastness or Epson's PremierArt inkjet canvas (roll) sealed with ClearShield Canvas 30 Satin UV protective coating for >100 years of lightfastness.
