Gear Overview

Having the right tools for the job at hand is always important to a working professional photographer. It’s true the gear does not create the images but having gear you love does aid in the process of creating the images you see in your mind. Here is a look inside my tool kits at some of my favorite gear.

 

Nikon Camera Gear

Nikon equipment has been my only choice as a professional. The grip, dials, menus and quality all feel like an extension of me and what I expect in my Pro gear.
