Equipment used

For those interested in the process and the technical gear required. Here is a list of my current equipment. I rarely take all of it on a shoot rather try and work out what I will need in advance. Its heavy stuff!
My first SLR camera was an entry level Nikon F60 film camera and since then I have become accustomed to the Nikon brand. After the F60 I progressed to the F80 for a short while before converting to digital with the D70. A few of the images on this website were taken with the D70 but the vast majority taken with my next camera the D300. Finally I took the plunge a few years ago and invested in a full frame Nikon D610. My previous cameras were all DX (APS or cropped) sensor camera like most consumer/enthusiast cameras are which deliver a good level of quality however the D610 with a full frame sensor takes the quality up to a professional level. I am now able to produce prints that are pin sharp at A2 size and beyond.

I previously used this set up:

Nikon D300 (DX senor):
Sigma DC 18-50mm f2.8 EX macro
Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm f4-5.6
Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 LD macro

And now I use this:

Nikon D610 (full frame sensor)
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm VR
Tokina SD Pro 50-135mm f2.8 DX
Samyang Tilt-Shift 3.5 / 24mm

I also use a head height Manfrotto 055X Pro B tripod with a Manfrotto 410 geared head. A heavy beast but brilliant for landscape work. And a lighter and smaller Manfrotto 190XB tripod with a 390 RC2 head for long treks or hill climbs.

I use the following filters:
Lee filters 100 system holder
Sigma 105mm DG circular polariser with a Lee filters holder adapter
Lee filters ND graduates, hard and soft sets of 1, 2 and 3 stop graduations.
Lee filters Neutral density overall
Lee filters Big stopper 10

Paramo dark cloth. Gets some funny looks but invaluable when needing to compose and view the camera back in bright light.

I use Lowepro and Vanguard rucksacks to carry my gear into the field and keep it all protected.

I produce my own prints on an Epson stylus pro 3880 A2 printer onto fine art papers. As good as it is to view images on a backlit screen you can't beat the feeling of seeing your images as a large print.
