Well, since it seems every other photo/video blog out there has a 'My Gear' blog post, I figured it was about time to do one here as well. The following is the most common gear I use for both Photographic and film shoots. Enjoy!

 

First of all, my camera. I shoot with the Nikon D7000. Why do I shoot Nikon? Well, simply because it works. I started off shooting Canon, but switched recently and I absolutely love it. The quality of the photos is amazing, and extremely sharp. The video is gorgeous and I love the way this camera feels in my hands. I have one main D7000 and also use two extra D7000 bodies as backups or for extra angles during large video productions such as weddings or concerts.

 

 

 

 

I also own a Nikon D40 body for behind the scenes photos, or just for fun shots during vacations or parties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 This is my favorite lens. The Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED. This lens offers a great focal range, extreme control over aperture and depth of field and captures the scene in beautiful clarity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For lenses, I use the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (above,) the Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G, and two Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 prime lenses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I use the Nikon Speedlight SB-600 for on-camera flash and also for some off camera fill light, controlled by the Cactus V4 wireless flash triggers (seen below.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cactus V4 Wireless Flash Triggers (Radio Slaves.) These are the best flash triggers you are going to find for the price. At $50, these little triggers really pack a punch! Obviously because of the low price, they aren't nearly as good as Pocket Wizards, but for now, this is what I use because they are so cheap and work great!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Flycam Nano DSLR edition is a great part of my collection that I use a lot. This tool stabilizes the camera and gives some GREAT results for smooth video. This really comes in handy for weddings, or other large events which require a lot of "on-the-go" video!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, that's all I've got for now. I have a lot more equipment that I keep in studio, such as my studio flash heads, umbrellas, light stands, clamps, reflectors, props, backdrops, spare batteries, etc. But for this post, I mainly wanted to show you guys the basics of what I use for location shoots. I hope you enjoyed this!
