Ask a question

Please use this form to contact me about professional photography services or workshops, or just ask a question. I’ll do my best to reply to everybody, I promise. However, please read the Twenty Questions FAQ before sending me an email, your question might already be answered there.

Please note that due to an increasingly impossible volume of emails on this topic and rude, demanding people abusing my time, I will not answer or read ‘what should I buy’ or ‘should I buy X or Y’-type questions. This is simply because in all cases, the photographer makes the greatest difference, not the equipment, and moreover, every individual’s requirements and shooting styles are different. I will also not reply ‘are you going to review X’ questions – I don’t have the time or money to review something I’m not actually using because a) I sell images not advertising for a living, b) I have to buy my cameras, and c) a throwaway casual opinion is meaningless and it takes a lot of time and a variety of different situations to test a camera adequately.

I recommend education instead – the Teaching Store is a good place to start. There is no point in having better equipment but lacking the ability to use it, and my needs and evaluation criteria will almost certainly be different from yours. However, if you feel you must have validation, then I suggest looking at my Recommended Gear List; or Camerapedia: if I’ve used or recommend something, my opinion is already here.

    just want to thank you for sharing your folio, it has been an inspiration to me espically the japan catergory. It really shows me a different view of the same place i so very much love. Can’t wait to get a FF and a 85 f1.4 and try and learn more the ‘through the human every day eye’ sort of feel for images. your images tell their own stories and an 3D feel about them.

    thanks very much again!

    BTW your japan GT link doesn’t seem to work.
