Cameras:

Sony’s 42MP beast of a camera with 15 stops of dynamic range, no AA filter, 10fps burst mode, dual SD cards, amazing EVF, the list goes on. It also has amazing video features for when I need it with 1080p 120fps and 4K FF with no pixel binning. Definitely my favorite camera to date.

DJI’s latest compact travel drone, basically a mini Phantom 4 Pro! The 1″ sensor paired with the new Hassleblad camera, active track 2.0, new hyperlapse features and new 10 bit / log modes make this a total winner.

My go to camera for mounting on top of my camera. Perfect for BTS and a camera POV perspective. Excellent for aerial photography as well.

 

Lenses:

1504629047000_IMG_863927Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master

My go to ultra wide angle lens, very sharp corner to corner, no vignetting or color fringing. My filter system works on there too, all around a big win.

The workhorse lens! This is on my camera 80% of the time, great for portrait, landscape, aerial photography, street, literally almost any situation. Fantastic image quality and optics, a must have for the Sony mirrorless system.

 

sony_sel85f14gm_fe_85mm_f_1_4_gm_1222775 Sony 85mm f/1.4 G Master

My favorite portrait and small telephoto prime lens. Sharp wide open and excellent for video work, portraits and street photography. When I need a lighter kit this replaces the 100-400mm.

My favorite telephoto zoom lens, super sharp, excellent image quality, perfect focal range for landscape. Overall a big win for the kind of work I do.

 

Support:

rrs-4 Really Right Stuff TVC34L / BH-55 Ballhead

Probably one of the most rugged and solid tripods money can buy in the photography world. It’s the perfect combination of weight, folded/extended length and overall durability. Always super stable and never fly’s away in the wind.

 

1500559995000_1334066 Really Right Stuff L-Bracket

I absolutely can’t live without an L bracket on my cameras anymore. For my A7R3 it completes the grip which feels perfect in my hands as well as makes verticle shooting on a tripod a total breeze. 100% recommend for every landscape shooter and anyone who needs a bigger grip ono the A7III cameras.

pkd0008Peak Design Sling Strap

100% the best camera strap I’ve ever used. Super comfortable and never gets in the way, also holds a ton of weight.

 

LensCoat_LCRSMBK_RainCoat_RS_Rain_Sleeve_870829LensCoat Rain Cover (Medium)

Super important for any kind of outdoor photography, you never know when it’s going to rain. Perfect for walking around as well as having your camera mounted on a tripod with full access to controls. It’s lightweight so I always keep this in my bag!

 

Camera Bags:

Since I switched to Sony mirrorless I was able to cut down the size of my camera bag. Lightweight, rugged and durable and has plenty of space plus an expandable front pocket which is amazing.

This bag is gigantic, I only bring this when I need to literally bring everything or if I’m doing video work and need the space for the stabilizer. It’s also the max size for an overhead carry on.

Favorite messenger bag of all time when I just need my laptop and/or my camera and extra lens. Awesome bag all around!

 

Misc Accessories

1504542047000_1357402 Dell XPS 9560 15″ Laptop

My favorite laptop I’ve ever owned. It’s outdated now that the 9570 is out but still gets the job done on location. Having a 4K color accurate touch screen that can handle 4k video files, large Sony A7R3 files on the go is a game changer. Highly recommend!

fh-7 Formatt Hitech 100mm Filter System

My favorite filter company, they make the firecrest filters which are completely color neutral and have a range of different solid / graduated filters. I use the 3 stop, 6 stop, 10 stop and 16 stop solid and the 3 / 5 stop graduated 150mm filters along with the 105mm polarizer.

Noise canceling headphones will save your life on long flights, it makes all the difference to not hear screaming kids for 15 hours on the plane. Great sound quality, 3 levels of noise canceling, 30 hour battery that charges via micro USB, an absolute must for any traveler.
