a photographer. haha!


i like travelling: my travelogue


i'm currently in the process of writing 2005 up (er!), since it's nearly over - china gets the treatment first!


i currently work as CTO for Podio


gear by canon:


EOS 5D Mark II




EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II

EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

EF 100mm f/2.8 macro USM

Speedlite 580EX

ST-E2 Speedlite Transmitter

EF extender 1.4x

EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM (this is really shitty wide open, actually, post-servicing it's not anymore)

EF 135mm f/2L USM

EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

EF 35mm f/2

EF 135mm f/2.8 w/Softfocus (!)


If I could only have one lens - probably the 135mm. What a joyous creation. The 85mm is on the shopping list though, when I feel like throwing 1250 quid at it. I'm also quite partial to the 1D MKIII, although I am going to exert self-control for once in my life and pay off my student loan first! Also, apparently the autofocus is dodgy. Can't be as bad as the 20D though...


A short list of my former digital cameras, and the reasons for their demise:


9) Canon IXUS 800 IS - stolen from my coat in "Woodys" nightclub, Notting Hill. A right shithole that place. I paid 7 quid for the priviledge.


8) Canon IXUS 750 - sold to a Mr. A N Hunter for a bargin £120 quid


7) Canon IXUS 40 - (recently left in valencia airport)


6) SONY DSC-U40 (sold due to appalling image quality - never trust your friends to review cameras!)


5) SONY DSC-V1 (someone started a fight with me at a party and tipped beer on it - the demon drink was only indirectly to blame here)


4) Canon Digital IXUS v2 (dropped by a friend the night before I left to live in France for a year - couldn't afford another! drink was involved in this incident too).


3) Kodak DC4800 Zoom (stolen on a night train from Rome to Venice after drinking far too much)


2) Kodak DC210 Zoom (lent from my dad then stolen when i was burgled in hulme hall, manchester uni)


1) Kodak DC3400 Zoom (stolen at a formal dinner to celebrate the end of the year at imperial college)


Which makes the EOS 20D the longest surviving camera I've ever owned! Hurrah!
