About me:

Photography has always been my lifelong passion.
I will not let commercial interests get into the way of this passion.

Right now is a great time to be a photographer. The tools that are available are unbelievably accessible and extremely powerful.

My passion, experience and the technology is all wrapped up into one with you, my client being the winner of all this.

Commercial, Architecture, Portraiture, Weddings, Reunions, Parties, Events and more.

All professional work is kept strictly confidential and on password protected web galleries.

Currently I am based in SE Asia, located in Thailand. Have camera, I will travel.

  • i noticed the RRS L bracket has a hex wrench which attaches to it.  Tools are prohibited items for carry ons IIRC.  Not a word has been said about the bracket.
  • I think the 3 primes you're mentioning, 85, 135, & 200 would work great for what you're needing them for especially in a minimalist mode.

  • Replied in Buy It Now
    I just rebought the 85's sister the 100 f2 and I own and use the 70-200 f2.8L II. The two lenses (prime vs zoom) are two different tools.  I will use the 100 for low light shooting in crowded ...
  • I use the Think Tank Digital Holster 50 all of the time with my 100-400 MkII including the foot and a lens plate attached without any problems. Maybe a little tight but it works fine. Also ...
  • I'm not necessarily buying that there is a problem with the lens foot from Canon or that there's a problem with their foot or any other at all. I will comment that a longer lens foot actually makes ...
  • Replied in IS and BIF
    Here's what works for me. Leave the IS on. Install a Really Right Stuff replacement foot. Use a Think Tank Digital Holster 50.
