Mitch - Bristol  👨🏻‍💻Freelance Photographer 🗃Admin for @igersBristol & @igersBath 📸Canon 💪🏼#antimitchclimbs

Hi. Long time no see. I hit up some rooftops last night with @bentiley and @alexmillichamp, but I left my tripod mount on my other camera. Many tears. Here’s a photo from a previous mission. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hope you’re all well! 🤙🏼

Whenever I have people in my photo, I like it to be just one. An isolated figure. That’s just my style, what’s yours? 🤔

Here be @_fukq, taking a feet dangle photo. Who would do something so dangerous? 😱😏

What I really want to know is what camera/lenses do you guys use?

Equipment. People are obsessed with equipment. I’m obsessed with equipment. Everyone says it’s not about the equipment and you know it’s not about the equipment, but you’re still obsessed with equipment. One of the most common questions I receive are about equipment (see also: what rooftop is that bro?). Ok, I’m going to stop saying equipment. 🤗

I use Canon equipment (sorry, I like that word). I use Canon because I think they’re the best around. I don’t think Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm etc are bad, I just think Canon are better. I learnt using Nikon, but when I wanted to go full frame I bought a Canon. Because they’re better. I’m not here to tell you to buy Canon although if you were to ask me, that is what I’d suggest. ANYWHO. I thought I’d share the gear I use because some people (me) care about that kind of thing. 🤓

I don’t have much equipment, because it’s expensive. I also avoid buying brand new if I can, because it’s expensive. So here’s a small list of the basics I use.
Canon EOS 6D
Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM
Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC USD
What’s in my bag if I’m packing light for a climb or a wander? Canon 6D and 24-105mm f/4L. A pairing which produces most of my photos apart from the ones that are ultra wide and astrophotography. Seriously, the 24-105L is the best walk around lens in the world and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s also possible to get the Mark I for under £400 second hand. (I sold a spare one recently for £360).

I won’t bore with speedlites, filters, remotes etc but I will say that Manfrotto BeFree ALU tripods are savage and only £120. 👌🏼

“Oh look, a camera” 🤷🏻‍♂️

Had a fun night last night with the Cardiff Boys, playing with fire and behaving like children. I’ll post a story up shortly of a photo we set up, which consisted of @_smurfious and I firing Roman candles AT each other. I got hit three times, but I managed to land a kill shot to Benji’s chest so I think I won? 💪🏼

Edit: I did this shot with a fractured rib. So much pain but anything for the shot! 🤙🏼

The first of three Instameets held over the weekend as part of @instagram’s fifteenth Worldwide Instameet. It’s such a pleasure being a part of the communities we have here in Bristol and in Bath. Saw lots of familiar faces and so many new ones! 🎉

Lots of cool stuff planned on @igersBristol for the month of April, keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for more info.. 🤙🏼

In frame: The @igersBristol squad! 👋🏼

Just another view of Bristol. #antimitchclimbs

It always surprises people when I tell them I’m not really arsed about climbing anything outside of Bristol. The reason I started doing it was to see my city in a way that was impossible. We don’t have the Shard, Skygarden, a helicopter service to fly you over. Unless you go up in a hot air balloon (which is the best way to do it), you just don’t get to see the city the way I do. I have climbed stuff outside of Bristol and I’m not opposed to it, I’m just not that fussed.🤷🏻‍♂️

The thing that really motivated me early on was the messages I’d receive from people who would say things like “I’ve never seen Bristol like that before”. It made me want to go out and photograph Bristol from as many different angles and view points as possible, to share the beauty of Bristol in a way only a handful of us do! So yeah, there’s a little story about why I like to go on rooftops. Bye. 🤙🏼

Had a really fun weekend with @richimal_bristol and @matthewpriceartist, exploring various parts of Bristol. They both know so much about Bristol's wildlife and have made me excited to get out and capture it! (and maybe take some photos) 🌝

Just been watching @madeinbristolTV and it got me thinking about the Bristolian accent and whether I like it or not.. 🤔

Afternoon. Wanted to head out today but this weather is shit so I'm sitting in bed watching films. Next week I'm challenging myself to go for a wander with my camera every single day regardless of weather!

Hope you all have a great weekend, and don't ask me questions about this photo you know I'm not going to answer. 🤙🏼

We announced another @igersBath meet the other day, so keep Saturday 25th March free if you wanna come and take moody photos of the UK’s most beautiful city. It’s @instagram’s Worldwide Instameet Fifteen so make sure this is the meet you attend! We had over seventy people last time, so plenty of awesome photographers to meet and network with! 🤙🏼

Looking forward to clear skies now the temperatures are up. Standing outside for hours when it’s -5 is not fun for either myself or my equipment. 😓
