The Well-Worn Cameras of a Professional Photojournalist

You know you’re a professional photojournalist when you try to take good care of your cameras but they still end up look like these.

These belong to photographer Timothy Allen, who photographs the world’s indigenous societies for the BBC documentary Human Planet. He uses two Canon 5D Mark II DSLR cameras with 16-35 f2.8, 50mm f1.2, 85mm f1.2, 200mm f2.8, and 400mm f4.5 lenses. You can see some of Allen’s jaw-dropping work here and here.
