Commercial Photography by Peter Ashby-Hayter

Photography equipment recommendations

My main cameras are the Nikon D4 and Nikon D800 DSLR’s (D4 for speed and the D800 for its 36 megapixel image). Back-up equipment includes two Nikon digital cameras the D700 and D2x. Currently in semi-retirement is all my non-digital equipment including many classic Nikon 35mm cameras and the Horseman Large Format view camera system.

Lenses with 'photographer's stars' for various different reasons and in no particular order:

Digital media by Lexar. Lighting by Bowens, Nikon & Metz. Tripods and stands by Manfrotto. Reflectors & backgrounds by Lastolite. Calumet Photographic is the Professional dealer I recommend. Photo printing by Clifton Colour.

I use Apple Mac computers and Creative Suite 6 software by Adobe, including Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Other mac software used including the excellent Phase One Media Pro browser, Graphic Converter, onOne Software PhotoTools 2.6 and Google Viveza.
