One question that a lot of photographers get asked is what kind of equipment do you use? Well, I’m not much of a writer, but I’ll give it a shot. I know I’ll be leaving a lot of things out but here is the skinny on what’s in my camera bag. First off, what I carry on a daily basis really depends on the project at hand! For example, I would pack my gear differently when I’m doing a portrait session than if I were shooting a wedding!
I always have used Nikon cameras and lenses! They are an amazing tool for me and I’m very familiar with their options and abilities. My gear allows me the full creative control that I require when I work. There are so many factors to making a great images from the equipment you use, compositions on every shot, depth of field, and lighting.
Having the right tools to do my job as a photographer definitely improves my end results that my clients expects and also gives me the most creative control to create the images that are in my mind. Also not listed is my backup bodies and lenses. This list is what I use most often during my sessions.My Main Camera Bodies Nikon D750 Nikon D700 Nikon D800 The Glass Nikon 24-70mm 2.8G Nikon 70-200mm VRII 2.8G Nikon 35mm 1.8G Nikon 50mm 1.8D Sigma 35mm DG 1.4 Art Series Sigma 50mm EX DG 1.4 Sigma 85mm EX DG 1.4 Sigma 105mm EX DG 2.8 Macro Lighting (when needed) Nikon SB-900 Nikon SB-910’s Paul C.
