About me:

I've only been hit by a 12 tonne boat travelling at 30 knots once. Nearly fatal, but wasn't.

I shoot on:
Canon 1DX
Canon 5D MKIII
Canon XA 20

Equipment trashed so far:
1 550EX
1 Quantum Turbo
1 Canon 70-200 f2.8L
1 Canon 28-70 f2.8L
1 Canon 17-35 f2.8L
1 Pentax 6x7 mk II
1 Canon Eos 5
1 Canon Eos 1
1 Canon Eos 1n
1 Canon 1DS
1 Canon 1DSmkII

If you want to keep your equipment in working order, avoid yachting photography!

Studied photography, worked for Allsport/Getty Images, now I travel round the world photographing sailing yachts and motor boats of all shapes and sizes
