Christian’s Photography Equipment

Quite a few people have asked me what photographic equipment I use. Here is the info. Just send me an email if you have any further questions.

Canon vs. Nikon

Well, since I started with wildlife photography in 2001 I use Canon equipment. The only reason why I do use Canon and not Nikon is because I started with Canon. I teach a lot of people with either equipment and it is a bit like with religion – the basic message is the same – just different implementations 🙂

In my opinion it does not matter which equipment you use, as long as you make good use of it. In case you are interested in my Motion Photography Method go to https://sperka.info/motion-photography-rules/
