Camera Gear


When I travel abroad, I only take one Nikon DSLR camera with me.  With my 17-50mm f/2.8 lens and my 50mm f/1.8 lens, I’m pretty sorted.

But when I go out on a job, traveling, and to make sure that I can cover the range of subjects I know I’ll encounter, I always carry both my Nikon D810 and Nikon D750 DSLR cameras, one with the 17-50mm lens and the other with a 70–200mm lens. I only carry the tripod, the 50mm, the 85mm lens, and my Yongnuo flash unit when I know I’ll need them for specific shots. I shoot all images in the raw file format.

I take the same gear on every trip and it consists of the following:

  • Nikon D810 camera body
  • Nikon D750 camera body
  • Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens
  • Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 lens
  • Nikon 85mm f/1.8 lens
  • Nikon 50mm f/1.8mm lens
  • Yongnuo YN560 II flashes
  • Hoya HD UV filters (permanently attached to all lenses for protection)
  • Sirui T-1005x aluminum tripod with Velbon FHD-51QN aluminum tripod plate
  • 128GB, 64GB, and 16GB Extreme Pro Sandisk SD cards
  • Mac Book Pro Laptop and an iMac, loaded with Adobe Lightroom 6
  • GoPro Hero3 Black Edition
  • Hähnel Remote Shutter Trigger
  • 2x extra Nikon EN-EL15 Batteries (and chargers)
  • Black Rapid Wrist Strap
  • Black Rapid RS-7 Camera Strap
  • Lowerpro Pro Runner 300 AW Backpack
  • ThinkTank Hydrophobia 70-200 rain cover
