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.
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.
These lights are the easy little cousing to the B1. While there is a battery external to the lights, the entire pack is so lightweight its amazing for shooting in the field.
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 lights.
The original Profoto Air Transceiver is perfect for use across camera platforms and works seamlessly with the Profoto lights.
Gorgeous light modifer and one of my go-tos for sport portraits.
Not quite as clean and sturdy as the rigid Beauty Dish, but the collapsible OCF Beauty Dish from Profoto is great for travel and still throws some beautiful light.
Controlling light spill with modifiers is a key to really taking full advantage of the light the Beauty Dish has to offer.
These modifiers are perfect for back lighting a subject in a 3-light setup or acting as a front light to create a lean profile.
Huge, soft, beautiful light for portraits.
The 69"'s kid brother, this is a great light with a deep throw for close-up shots.
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!
My go-to for behind the scenes footage to help bring all of you onto the job with me and share the creative process. We've worked with GoPros since the Hero 3 and love these little cameras.
This drone is perfect for traveling with it's sleek setup, and the handheld gimble is perfect for creating smooth footage everywhere we go!
I loved my Air but the Pro is perfect for not only sharing with clients on a jobsite, but also as a laptop when you're away from the studio. Pair that with the Apple Pen and its a beautiful tool for photographers.
Making the move to Epson printers was entirely worth it. I never used to print much work, but now I love seeing images come to life in large prints from this printer.
My two favorites right now are the Ilford 13x19 DuoMatte paper and the 13x19 SemiGloss Duo papers for portfolio works.
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 never really knew how much I couldn't see in my images until I started using Eizo monitors. Now I can't imagine going back. I love printing and seeing colors in a whole new spectrum.
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!
I recently moved back to the Wacom Tablet for my everyday use and paired with the Eizo Monitor it make a beautiful retouching setup.
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.
