My Gears

The camera doesn't make the photographer, but having the right equipment sure can help out a lot by making it easier to take a creative shot.

my cameras

My primary camera now is the new Canon 5D Mark IV.  This camera is amazingly good at shooting in low light conditions and is very fast for all type of action shots.

My backup camera is the previous model, the Canon 5D Mark III.  This has been my work horse for many years and it will still be used for a long time.

my lens

Almost all of my lens are prime lens, which are fixed at a certain focal length to get the best results.  I love shooting wide open from f1.4 to f2.0 to create that dreamy bokeh that gets everyone in awe! Love it.

Canon 35mm: The perfect wedding lens!

Sigma 50mm: The best all around shots for almost anything.

Sigma 85mm: My most used lens for portraits.  Love this baby.

Canon 70-200mm: The only zoom lens that I use and works perfectly during wedding ceremonies when you want to be hidden out of the way and taking great close up shots!

my lights

Mastering lights is going to take a lifetime and I'm looking forward to it.  It was scary at first, but now I'm slowly adjusting to how I can use it effectively and creatively.

I've now switched over from Speedlites to Profoto B1 & B2 along with all the other accessories for light modifiers such as softboxes & umbrellas.
