WHAT'S IN THE BAG

THE LIST BELOW IS SOME OF MY CURRENTLY USED EQUIPMENT FOR FIELD PHOTOGRAPHY

CAMERA BODIES
Nikon D800, D810 D850.

TRIPODS

My current default tripods are the Novoflex Triopod PRO 75 and the Triopod M medium. These tripods are cleverly designed and I use them for all of my macro and general nature photography.

I also have several others which I occasionally use. The Benro Mach3 TMA48CXL Carbon Fibre, Novo Explora T20 Carbon Fibre, Unilock & Benbo covering three sizes.

Novoflex ClassicBall 5 II, Uniqball 45X, Kirk BH1 and Novo CBH 46 Ball & Socket Heads. Really Right Stuff Universal base for Pano images. Also specially designed movable platform head made for working at higher magnifications.

FLASH

GPS UNITS
Nikon GP-1 and di-Geotagger Eco Professional 2 DC units; an essential piece of equipment for me in the field. All of my images have GPS information attached to the metadata; this is essential when working on subjects that are going to be archived by the National Museum. It adds relevant information to the image regarding its precise location, which turns your image into a valuable record. Geotagging has many useful advantages, especially for landscape and close-ups especially when photographing rare plants.

NISI FILTERS
NiSi S5 150mm filter system; Circular Polariser; NiSi IR Series ND filters 6 and 10 stop; NiSi GND 150x170mm ND8 (0.9) 3 Stop Soft; NiSi GND 150x170mm ND8 (0.9) 3 Stop medium.
