Canon 24mm Tilt Shift 

If you are an architectural photographer this lens is hard to manage without.  When I was first starting out it was out of my price range but I had it in my sights and made sure it made it into my inventory.  

This lens produces tack sharp images and when needing perspective control this is where the magic comes in.  

canon 16-35

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

Another AMAZING lens.  Its a high performance, water-resistant, ultra wide-angle L-series zoom lens. Its the lens that I use on every shoot I do.  Its tack sharp and produces some amazing clarity and beautiful Bokeh!  

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Retaining the excellent performance at maximum aperture of the much larger f/2.8L but in a smaller size, the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM Lens from Canon is a professional zoom telephoto suitable for a broad range of applications from sports to portraiture. It is fully compatible with the Extender EF 1.4x II and 2x II teleconverters (requires f/8 AF sensitivity with EF 2x II) and features optical image stabilization (IS) to reduce the blur caused by camera shake. The image stabilization provides the equivalent effect of a shutter speed 4 stops faster and offers an IS mode optimized for following shots of moving subjects.


Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens from Canon is a fast prime lens featuring a particularly large maximum aperture for effective low-light and shallow depth of field capability. As a standard focal length lens, it is suitable for most any shooting situation and its lens coating and optical construction are optimized to minimize chromatic aberrations, ghosting and flare. A truly circular diaphragm results in pleasing out-of-focus areas.


Wow!  What can I say about this device?  It has changed the way I shoot.  Connect it to the camera and an iPad Mini or iPhone and you have yourself a way of completely running the camera from the device on the iPad remotely.  Its hands down one of the best pieces of equipment I've added to my gear bag!


carbon fiber tripod

Manfrotto MT290XTC3US 290 Xtra Carbon Fiber Tripod

This carbon fiber tripod extends from 12" to a maximum height of 65.2". It weighs 4.4 lb and can hold up to 11 lb of gear. The tripod's 3-section legs have flip locks to individually change the height of each leg.  I've really loved working with this tripod.  Its so much lighter than anything I've had in the past, carbon fiber is definitely the way to go!

Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Head

I love this head, its small and compact with nobs which will give you precise movement in three directions.  The head has a large camera platform with a leveling bubble.  

Godox AD200 TTL Pocket Flash Kit

The AD200 TTL Pocket Flash Kit from Godox is built around a unique flash light source that has a standard speedlite head and a bare bulb head that give you the option of 2 distinctly different qualities of light. The kit comes with the 2 heads, lithium battery, charger and carry case.

Airport Navigator Rolling Camera Bag

I was on the lookout for a smaller type bag with wheels that was a little more manageable for me.  Once the other camera bags were filled it was just too hard to carry up and down stairs. This bag is top loading and easily fits my 15inch MacBook Pro.  Its also a plus for traveling since it will fit underneath a seat!  I've really enjoyed the use of it.



Lowel GL-1 Power LED

The Lowel GL-1 Power LED is a compact handheld light source that is ideal for any type of event or location photography that demands portability, flexibility and ease of use. The GL-1's ergonomic appeal is readily apparent, from the rubberized exterior to the lockable trigger that enables dimming from 5.0-100%. The removable, rechargeable battery is located at the base for precise balance and its flat underside and low-profile feet allow placement on a table or other flat surface. There's also a 1/4"-20 threaded socket for tripod mounting.
