Photographic equipment

I currently use a Nikon D90, in a Sea & Sea D80 housing. I use two Inon Z240 flashes (strobes). Lenses: Nikon 60 mm, 105 mm, 20 mm, and 10.5; Sigma 17-70 mm and Tokina 10-17 mm.

My previous cameras were Nikonos V (I started with a secondhand Nik II), and Pentax LX in Hugyfot housing. I used these with a range of lenses, particularly Nikkor 15 mm for wide-angle and Pentax 50 mm for macro. My film stock was mainly Fujichrome Velvia 50, Provia 100, and Sensia 100.
