PHOTOGRAPHY TOOLS I LOVE

I cannot live without so many clever pieces of software to run my business and make my life run with simplicity. 

Here are some quick-links for you to take a look at what I use in my business.  I only share links to the things I have tried and tested and then implemented into the way we do things here at Peary HQ. Full disclosure, these links are affiliate links.

What you see here are my most favourite pieces of software.  I can wholeheartedly recommend them all.

I ❤️ CANON

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

I'm a Canon Girl forever and always. When I need diverse capabilities and something reliable, I reach for this model.

SAVE YOUR SPINE

Kata Pro-Light PL-3N1-25 Sling Backpack for DSLR Camera

Such a reliable bag. You can mix up the internal storage compartments to safely accommodate different kit's.

Power up

Canon Battery Pack LP-E6N

Having several back up batteries is just good sense. Keeping them charged in a neat sequence saves you ever having to worry about losing power too.

Testing sound on location

Sephia SP1050 Noise Isolating in-ear Earphones Headphones

I need to check the sound quality when I'm out on location recording a quick testimonial after I've shot a headshots session. I'm often in a loud place, or we have a noisy crew on set. I can keep this nifty lil' pack in my kitbag and pull it out to check sound recording levels are right on a microphone with a great cancelling out the effect of the rest of the noise on set.

This is perfect and I really love the cute little bag. I also have tiny ear-holes. The selection of attachments to get 100% noise-cancelling is perfect for me!

The only portrait pancake

Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM Lens

UM2 48kHz 2-channel USB Audio Interface with XENYX Mic Preamplifier

Love this pancake lens for crisp close-ups when shooting headshots on a wide aperture.

An outdoor lighting kit you can fit under 1 arm

Lastolite Collapsible Reflector 95cm - Sunlite / Soft Silver

I cannot live without my beautiful Rosie the Reflector! Perfect for making the most from natural light when out on shoots.

Rapid Image files transfer

Delkin USB 3.0 Dual Slot SD UHS-II / CF Card Reader

It's important to me to back up image files AS SOON AS possible. I use this card reader to make it an easy task when shooting out on location.

The Best lens Insurance & control UV

Hoya 72mm Pro1 Digital UV Filter

I use these on all of my lenses. I have saved hundreds over the years by having this as an extra protective barrier to lenses being knocked around. IT also does the job on the tin and helps to filter UV light.

Steady cam for your phone

Zhiyun Smooth 4 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer

I love using this with my crew on a session so we can all have fun and capture really easy smooth phone film footage. EVERYONE on my team no matter how non-techie can get to grips with how this lil beauty works. LOVE IT!

Back em up

SanDisk Extreme 32 GB UDMA7 CompactFlash Card - Black/Gold

Mega reliable and able to shore at least a couple of shoots in one place.

A Tripod that protects your spine

Portable Tripod K&F Concept 70"/177cm

Nicely lightweight tripod with the security of proper support at a wide range of heights.

Ultra-wide angle

Canon EF 17-40 mm f/4.0 L USM Ultra-Wide Angle Canon EF Zoom Lens - Black

Ultra-Wide crops require and ultra-wide lens. Surprisingly effective given its quite dinky size.

Steady Stabilizer & amazing all rounder

Canon EF-M 28 mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM Lens- Black

Shooting really close up is not something I do a lot of. But when the occasion calls for it this lil' beauty NEVER lets me down.

Be the pap

Canon EF 70-200mm f4L IS II USM

A great telephoto lens for shooting from long distances. Great stabilisation too.

GENERAL PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT

WEX - Warehouse Express UK

The first place I go to when hunting for new equipment is Warehouse Express, a really friendly company based in Norwich. They have such a nice team, they do trade in's and you can buy a wealth of good quality second hand too.

This takes you to my Mention Me account with WEX so you can get £20 off your next order.
