Gear Bag

Ever since I started in photography I have always used Canon, as my collection grew the interconnecting of Canon’s EF series lenses became the norm, upgrading along the way as photographic equipment is rather expensive. Many companies offer equally as good products but in my opinion Canon has the edge both in lenses and camera bodies. I’m lucky enough to be a member of Canon’s Professional Services (CPS), which if needed is a massive bonus both in terms of repair and loan of equipment. ( Text in Red Links to products)

Listed below are some of the items I use for my Wildlife Photography, some of these are Amazon affiliate links and if purchased will not cost you anymore but I may get a slight commission to help me to keep producing Videos on YouTube & my Wildlife Photography. Thanks.
