I never “just” take a photo, I always use photography as a way of collecting material to create something that is not possible to capture. Something surreal or something impossible. But photoshop isn’t magic, it’s all about the material. The source images dictate the resolution and amount of detail in a photo so therefore although I’m much as digital artist as a photographer a good camera system is very important to me.

I’m shooting with a Hasselblad H5D-40 camera with a 35-90 mm lens, to me this is a quite small, yet heavy, combination for capturing the best material possible. The zoom lens allows me to carry just one instead of 3 prime lenses.

In the bag I also have (from left below bag) Battery charger, extra battery, usb cable, backup hard drive, card reader and a waist level viewfinder. In addition to the gear in the photo I always bring a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod and a Macbook Pro 15″.
