This is a breakdown of all the gear I own and use.
Canon 5d mk iii.
This is my workhorse, although I will be jumping to the mk iv in the future. My first DSLR was Canon so I have just continued to buy into the brand. The Canon vs Nikon debate for most cases is rather arbitrary.
Minolta x-370 35mm. This is my father's camera and the camera I learned on.
Instax mini 8. Love this thing for memories.
Case of film
Vello Battery grip. I actually mainly use these to prevent the bottom of the camera from getting all scratched up, makes it much easier for resale.
Memory Cards: (4) PNY Technologies 128gb
Think Tank card wallet.
Canon- 24-70mm f2.8 v ii, 70-200mm f2.8.
Sigma- 12-24mm f4 Art, 20mm f1.4 Art, 50mm f1.4 Art
Macro tube: Fotodiox Pro 31mm. Great for wedding ring shots without investing into a macro lens.
Filters: Bower 8 stop Variable ND, Tiffen circular polarizer. Love these for landscapes.
Tripod: Slik Pro 340DX. This has been my go to tripod for several years now. Its very durable, small enough to travel with and also extends tall enough for a lot of commercial use.
Camera Strap: BlackRapid sport breath. My favorite strap on the market. From commercial work, weddings to hiking in Iceland this thing is awesome.
Think Tank airport security V3.0. The amount of gear this bag holds is sort of ridiculous, almost everything pictured fits in this bag.
Mindshift rotation 180 horizon 34L. This is by far one of the coolest camera outdoor backpacks I have used. Being able to access gear without taking the pack off is a game changer.
I love speedlites. They are cheap, and portable. But when I need more power I rent the Profoto B1’s.
(2) Canon 600ex-rt speedlites. Love the HSS these offer.
(2) Yongnuo 600ex-rt speedlites. They definitely are not as durable as the Canon’s but being a fraction of the price for the same system is definitely worth it.
Canon ST-E3-RT transmitter. I think one of the best things you can do if you use strobes is to use a system where you can control your strobes power on your commander.
MagMod magsphere, MagMod gels and grids. This company changed my workflow. I love how fast and simply it is to add gels and grids.
(2) Impact Turtlebase C-stands (not pictured) various Impact stands. These things are durable and super quick to set up with the quick release system. Invest in heavy duty light stands. I promise it is always worth it.
Lastolite 6x6 scrim. This is my absolutely favorite modifier. I use this on almost every shoot, whether it's studio or on location.
Westscott- (4) 43 inch apollo orb, apollo orb grid. These have been the best speedlite octoboxes I have found.
Impact 4 speedlite holder. Definitely need this when shooting outside and need to combine the speedlites for more power.
Savage paper- various rolls. The various colors and sizes Savage offers make them an industry standard for portraits.
Hand painted canvas. Love this for portraits.
Cinegel speedlite gels. Best 3 dollars I have ever spent.
PearlStone (now Vello) Shutterboss ii intervalometer. Great for star trails and long exposures.
Bag of Duracell rechargeable batteries.
Bag of lens cloths.
Sierra Nevada chapstick.
Moo business cards.
(2) Impact clamps
JBL Charge 3 speaker. This little speaker is pretty loud and portable, I always have it on my shoots.
Neewer 43 inch 5 in 1 reflector
81 inch PLM umbrella
