The #1 question people ask me is, “What kind of camera do you use?”

I’ve used a wide variety of cameras, lenses and other gear over the years – from film cameras in 35mm, medium and large (4×5) formats to modern DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. I’ve owned more photo backpacks, slings, bags and tripods than I’d like to admit. And I have a cabinet full of filters, adapters, cable releases and other odd and ends. 

While I enjoy using the newest and most advanced equipment, these things are still just tools. I use them to make images. And no matter how good the equipment is, it still requires an artist and craftsman to create good photographs.

Current Cameras & Lenses

I’m currently using the Fujifilm X Series mirrorless system, taking advantage of the smaller, lighter gear. Fujifilm builds wonderfully tactile, ergonomic camera bodies and very high quality lenses.  My current Fujifilm system includes:

My photo kit for international travel: 2 bodies, 4 lenses, filters, batteries, Gopro (older model pictured with gimbal), tablet, phone, watch, notepad & pen, and passport - F-stop Gear Lotus (not pictured)
