Gear

Equipment itself does not take pictures — photographers do that — I am often asked what equipment I use.    I choose the equipment I actually take with me depending on the job requirements.

But as a famous photographer stated: " Concentrate on equipment and you’ll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light’s magic colors and your images will stir the emotions.”

Here’s what I use:
