Lenses

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens – My primary lens, almost always attached to the MkIII. This is the lens I use to shoot most of my LE pictures.
TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II – My second most used lens. It features both tilt and shift (especially convenient for architecture photography) and allows amazing blurry effects. Probably the sharpest lens I own, but tricky to use and understand.
EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM – A very polyvalent lens that is ideal to shoot at long focal lengths.
Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC – My backup wide angle lens. I used it to shoot many LE pictures presented here.
Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC – My backup zoom lens
Filters

Formatt Hitech ProStop IRND Long Exposure Kit – Joel Tjintjelaar Signature Edition – The Ideal companion for LE photographers.

I have been using screw in B+W ND filters for years, and even though they are great, having a holder and slide in filters is a huge improvement during the setting up phase.The Formatt-Hitech filters have also another advantage: they are much more neutral than B+W since they also block IR light.

I can definitely recommend them for any photographer with an interest in long exposure. They are way better than any other ones you’ll find!

 

Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Aluminum Tripod – My primary tripod. S little on the heavy side but very sturdy and reliable. Perfect for windy conditions, it stays stable even when waves hit it.
A light Vanguard tripod that I use as backup, or when I go for very long hikes.
Sirui K-40x Ball Head – It supports very heavy gear, and is extremely reliable and easy to use.
Canon Remote Switch – Absolutely necessary for LE shooting.
f-stop Loka backpack – My newest (and hopefully last) backpack acquisition. It is meant for demanding photographers and weather conditions.
Wish List

Canon Wide Tilt/Shift TS-E 17mm f/4L – The wider version of the 24 mm T/S. Another wonderful lens, that brings more opportunities as I could get even closer to the buildings.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM – The perfect lens for street photography and portraiture.
