How long have you used Nikon products for/ what is your favourite Nikon gear and why?
I’ve been using Nikon products since picking up my first DSLR, the D70, in 2004. The brand has been a huge part of my career ever since!
One of my favourite cameras is the Nikon D810 because it offers amazing resolution and dynamic range, which equals great image quality. When I do capture the perfect moment, I want it to be with the highest quality possible.
The Nikon D5 is another camera I know I can rely on, namely due to its great ergonomics. When you’re shooting all day and have the camera in your hands for 10 hours, you need something that’s comfortable and durable. Speed and high ISO are also big factors with this camera. With so much of my work action-based and fast-paced, I need to be able to capture moments as they happen, because there are no second chances.
And finally, the Nikon D500 is perfect for all my adventure work. Its lightweight body with professional features means that, whether I’m climbing a 900m cliff or in the middle of the desert, it won’t weigh me down.
In terms of lenses, it’s all about the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED for me – amazing sharpness and a great zoom. In fact, I find I can cover a whole project with this lens. I also love the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II for its flexibility and the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR as a lightweight wide-angled zoom. In addition, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED prime lens is great because of its fast 1.4 aperture and stunning quality, at one of my favourite focal lengths.
