The first time I sold a photo – I was a little shocked when I did the calculation – was more than 25 years ago. Since then, the technological changes have been huge, and photographers now upgrade equipment on a regular basis to keep up to date and have an edge over the competition. 

I’ve certainly got through a frightening amount of kit, including a couple of system changes – firstly, when I switched from film to digital, and more recently when I moved to medium format. I currently use a Fujifilm camera along with LEE Filters and f-stop gear.
