What’s In My Gear Bag

Every so often a prospective client, or more frequently another photographer, will ask what type of gear do I use. As a full-time professional photographer, my gear list is quite substantial. What I use to photograph your wedding day will be whatever tool is best for your day. I’m a member of both Nikon Professional Services and Sony Professional Services. I firmly believe that it isn’t the tool that makes the photographer. Rather, it’s up to the photographer to make the best use of the tools at their disposal. That said, you’ve seen my work, now on to my tools …
