Equipment Used

Digital Photography

Paul uses Fuji X-Series cameras for most of his photography, specifically the Fuji X-Pro2. When he first got started with photography, Paul primarily used Canon camera bodies and lenses and still recommends them to this day.

Videography

Paul uses the Panasonic Lumix GH4 for videography and if the need arises, a Phantom 4 drone for aerial work.

Film Photography

For traditional “analog” photography, Paul uses a Nikon F2AS 35mm SLR. The Nikon F2AS (black body) was the camera of choice for most photojournalists of the ’70’s and is a highly sought after camera for collectors today.

Photographic Film & Papers

Paul exclusively uses Ilford® films and photographic papers for his “wet darkroom” black and white film work. Ilford’s consistent quality and unwavering commitment to the film community sets them apart from other manufacturers.

Tripods

Paul uses Gitzo® carbon fiber tripods for all of his photographic work. Gitzo® tripods are made in Italy and are the most durable and lightweight tripods on the market.
