My Gear

Most people want to know what kind of gear you use as a photographer. Though the gear can make a difference it is really the skill of the photographer that makes the image amazing.

This is most of my gear that I use on a normal basis. I do have tons of little accessories that I have bought over the years, but are not really worth bringing up.

One thing you want to make sure if you are a beginner photographer is not to go out and buy tons of gear that you do not need. I have done that myself thinking that this item is cool, but later find out I have NO use for it.

Doing that is a big money waster. If I was to back up and start all over I would have been MUCH more careful on what I bought. Then maybe I would have been able to afford better lenses that I could really use and not just some junk trinkets just take up space.
