Below is a list of the equipment that I currently use, as well as some that I have used in the past and can strongly recommend but no longer own. 

OM Systems OM-1

My main camera for close up work, with the deep depth of field, focus bracketing feature, weather sealing and tack sharp images, this camera is an amazing piece of equipment for a macro and wildlife photographer!


Sony a7RIV

My secondary camera for all my wide angle work!.

This 61 mp, 10 fps beast of a camera delivers the best of the best image quality, as well as incredibly fast autofocus and animal eye tracking!


 M.Zuiko 60mm f2.8

This is my primary lens for my OM-1! Small size, extremely lightweight, weather sealed, tack sharp images, whats not to love


 Laowa 100mm f2.8

In my opinion this is definitely one of the best macro lenses on the market! Razor sharp images, and can also be used as a portrait lens too!


 Laowa 85mm f5.6

This is my go-to close up lens for my Sony macro setup. Being only 259g, its perfect for a lightweight small macro photography setup!

 Laowa 15mm f4

 The widest macro lens on the market today, the Laowa 15mm f4 is an amazing lens that can capture really unique wide angle close up images! most of the wide angle fungi images in my gallery were taken with this lens!

 Laowa 25mm f2.8

The Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5-5X lens is excellent for super small subjects such as slime molds or mesofauna!


 Sony 20mm f1.8

An amazing lens that is just perfect for landscape and night photography, that f1.8 aperture lets in a great amount of light in order to capture as much detail as possible. I mainly use this lens for my wide angle macro work, the close focusing distance allows me to get close to the subject and capture stunning sharp details, as well as show the enviroment!


Dust & Splash resistent, Water & Oil repellent coating, A great macro lens especially for people first getting into macro photography! Also a fun lens to photograph insects in flight in the garden!
