What is in your camera bag?

I love to travel light when I can, so often all I've got in my bag is:

- my Sony Alpha 7R IV;

- a wide angle prime and a standard zoom;

- a couple of filters; and

- my lightweight travel tripod.

What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

For the kind of work I do it's hard to go past the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM - good focal range for most landscape situations, but versatile enough for my commercial work too. Plus the sharpness and contrast is stunning throughout the frame!

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

Waking up for an epic view of the monasteries of Meteora in central Greece. I used my Sony Alpha 7R II to capture a series of shots, which I later stitched into an ultra-high resolution panorama. Despite it being a tourist hotspot, no one else had braved the morning conditions and we were rewarded with a vibrant spring sunrise all to ourselves!
