About Robin Whalley
I have now been seriously involved with Photography for over 10 years. Over this time my work has been published widely in the photographic press including Outdoor Photographer, Photography Monthly, Practical Photography, What Digital Camera and EOS User Magazine. My work has be used widely on web sites, calendars, greetings cards, book and magazines. I also write a monthly technical article for the leading online photography magazine ePHOTOzine.
Initially the Lenscraft website was a vehicle to show my work as a landscape photographer. Now it has grown into much more than a collection of my photographic work. Whilst I love to share my photography, I also enjoy helping others develop their own photographic skills. As a wise man once said, you can’t understand a subject until you have spent time teaching it. Whilst it has taken me many years of dedication and practice to develop my skills, I know firmly believe such skills can be developed in a fraction of the time it took me.
My Photography Tools
For the technically oriented of you, I use a variety of tools to create my work. My main camera is Canon 5D MkII with which I use three Canon lenses (17-40 L, 24-105 L and 70-300 IS).
My compact kit is a Panasonic GF1 with Olympus & Panasonic lenses (9-18, 14-45 & 45-200). I use this when travelling or when hill walking. I also have a Panasonic LX5 compact camera that I like to carry in my pocket.
I also still use film and have a number of film cameras including a Hasselblad XPan 35mm panoramic camera + lenses (45mm & 90mm), Pentax 67 MKII medium format camera, Holga medium format camera and Canon EOS3 35mm.
I have a number of Tripods and monopods made by Manfrotto, Giottos , Velbon and Benbo. All have different characteristics and serve quite different purposes.
