Here's a quick overview of my camera system and lenses:
My go to for portrait work and as much motion as possible. The sensor size and depth of color and detail out of this camera body and back is phenomenal. I'm addicted to Medium Format files!
40 Megapixels is just the start of this beast's capabilities. I love the files that this back produces and the breadth of info I have to work with in post.
The Canon 5D Mark III is my go-to camera body for all of my shoots. A full-framed workhorse that hasn't let me down yet.
These are the only cards we'll use. SanDisk holds the patent and they're the most reliable on the market.
The 80mm is great for taking photos that you'll perceive as if you were seeing them in real life. Epic lens and the Leaf Shutter allows for unbelievable sync speeds!
An absolutely epic lens. Sharp as a tack telephoto and you basically can not take a bad shot with it.
My go-to portrait lens. Beautiful depth of field, contrast, and bokeh and the 50mm focal length really brings the viewer into the image.
Great all around lens. If I'm not sure what the shoot is going to throw at me and I know I have to react quickly, this is the lens I'm going to have on my camera body.
My "hero" lens. It really gives the subject a larger-than-life appearance.
It's not the 85 1.2, but it's been one of my favorites since I started shooting. A beautiful portrait lens and it's never done me wrong.
The real magic in the bag... the lights!
This light has changed my life. Battery built in so you don't have to lug a pack and Profoto quality.
Affordable and great starter lights. I still keep 2 as backups to the Profoto setup.
I don't use these often, but they're great for a little kicker light in a tight spot.
This beast of a controller lets you make adjustments on the fly and keeps me working light with the Profoto B1 lights.
These little guys are great and cheap! I use these as utility triggers and the Einstein triggers are small and simple to use.
This is a great, lightweight little battery that can power lights or charge a phone if you're out in the field working and running low.
Gorgeous light modifer and one of my go-tos for sport portraits.
Huge, soft, beautiful light for portraits.
The 69"'s kid brother, this is a great light with a deep throw for close-up shots.
Inexpensive light modifiers that are a quality build and work as great backlights with grids.
I love the portability of this boom stand and the manfrotto quality means it'll hold up in the elements.
You spent the money on expensive lights, make sure they stay standing with a steady C stand!
Great all-around stands with a quality build and solid base.
All of the other stuff that makes the world keep turning and the work churning.
We just bought one of these masterpieces and the subtlety in the tones and textures is brilliant as a portrait backdrop.
I love this thing. A great flexible hood to control light and the added bonus of making your camera look legit.
These are used with the hood and help stop down light so I can shoot at thinner depths of field. I carry the .3, .6, and .9 variants.
This bag is a tank and perfect for rolling on board a plane and getting to the next destination. We store all of our camera gear in these.
A HUGE bag that works perfect for easily transporting all of our essential lighting gear safely on location.
Because roller bags can't go everywhere... This is the bag that gets us and our gear out to where we need to shoot.
Always keep your cards safe from the elements!
This is a great little device to clip on your belt and it gives us the freedom to view the images more closely on an iPad with the client.
We keep 1-2 of these on shoots to use with the Cam Ranger and view images on the go, with the client.
The more the merrier!
These are great for throwing different effects on the lights and adding some interest to photos.
The necessities to finish the job...
The workhorse we use for editing all of our images. I used to use PC but I don't think I'll ever go back.
My on-the-go computer and our onsite computer if we're shooting tethered in the studio.
I've been using Wacom tablets for years and finally retired my Intuos3 for the new Cintiq. Drawing right on the screen makes editing even more intuitive!
Back everything up and make it bomb-proof.
Make it bomb proof even when you're traveling. These things are built to take a beating and they dock extremely quickly with the G-Dock system for seamless transfers!
Screen calibration is key to getting true color and contrast out of your images across all of your screens.
The name says it all. You're not editing if you're not working with Adobe products...
Capture One Pro is a phenomenal RAW editing tool. All of my initial edits are in this program and the tones that come out of it are superior to anything else on the market.
