About my Tree Photography
My images have been selected for various competitions, exhibitions and magazines including:
- Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2014 – shortlisted image
- FSC UK 2014 photography competition – shortlisted image
- Woodland Trust merchandise
Many of my images are also on 500px at www.500px.com/thetreephotographer
I shoot in micro four thirds format using Panasonic Lumix equipment. The small form of this format means it’s possible to carry a camera body and several lenses on a long trek, along with other hiking gear.
I always capture in RAW format and post-process my images using Adobe Lightroom.
I’m often asked what cameras, lenses and accessories I use. The following is a summary of the equipment that I’ve been using in the last few years.
Lenses (x2 to compare with 35mm format):
- H-H014 (14mm / f2.5) – tiny wide angle pancake lens
- H-H020 (20mm / f1.7) – a wonderfully compact pancake lens, excellent in low light
- H-X025E Leica DG SUMMILUX (25mm / f1.4) – quality standard lens with beautiful bokeh
- H-F007014 (7-14mm / f4.0 zoom) – superwide zoom & probably my favourite lens
- H-FS014042 (14-42mm / f3.5-5.6 zoom) – a workhorse zoom lens
- H-ES045 (45mm / f2.8) – quality macro and portrait lens
- H-FS045200 (45-200mm / f4.0-5.6 zoom) – medium telephoto
- H-FS100300E (100-300 mm, F4-5.6 O.I.S) – super telephoto
- Benbo Trekker (for use in macro work and where travel limited)
- Benro Travel Angel carbon fibre (for trekking and travel)
- Metz 58 AF-1 flash
- Billingham Hadley Pro camera bag – the perfect size for one body plus 4 or 5 lenses
- Lens cleaning equipment
- The Photographer’s Ephemeris (iPhone app)
