Christian has used many different camera systems over the years. Images from most can be seen in the gallery. They are –
Leica SL2 mirrorless full frame digital camera. The SL2 is the only mirrorless camera designed and crafted in Germany. The unprecedented resolution of the SL2’s CMOS image sensor in full-frame format results in an unparalleled level of detail rendition and image quality. This is Christians current camera system. He uses three lenses from Leica the SUPER-VARIO-ELMAR-SL 16-35mm f3.5-4.5 ASPH, the LEICA VARIO-ELMARIT SL 24-90mm f2.8-4 ASPH and the LEICA VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 90-280 mm f2.8-4.

Sigma SD Quattro H. A range of Sigma Art Series lenses (14mm, 50mm, 85mm) Offering breathtaking resolution, rich gradations and colors, and exceptional realism, the Foveon X3 Quattro direct image sensor is a symbol of this never-ending pursuit of excellence. Value for money, you can’t buy better.
Christian prints his own work on two state of the art Epson printers. The 44” wide Surecolor P10070 and the 64” wide Surecolor P20070 offer unrivalled performance and output with superior resolution, gradations and colour density. To ensure colour accuracy he uses professionally made icc profiles from Dr. Les Walkling.
When editing he uses software such as Capture One for RAW image processing. Photoshop CC for detailed precise image editing. Other third party software such as PT Gui, 3D LUT Creator, Sigma Photo Pro and Helicon Focus.
To maintain an accurate colour managed workflow he uses a Wacom Cintiq 27HD display.
