The equipment that David takes with him on location will naturally vary according to the subject matter of the assignment and the lighting conditions/climate of the environment in which he is photographing. 

David favours two camera bodies above all else. When a subject is fast-moving, he looks no further than the Nikon D6. The high frames per second and powerful motor drive make for a combination that can capture any moment and allows for pin-sharp imagery. For everything else, David prefers the high resolution of the Nikon D850. David was asked by Nikon to spearhead the campaign that launched the D850 Camera in 2017 and also the D6 campaign in 2020. The D850’s supreme resolution allows David to blow his images up to the large trademark sizes for which he has become known.
