My Philosophy on Camera Gear

My thoughts on camera gear are to keep it light and simple. So if you’re looking for a gear-head with a long scrolling list of gear to browse through you’ve come to the wrong place. I want to do the most possible with the least amount to carry around.

Camera Bodies

Sony Alpha A7R ii – The A7R ii is my main camera body. It’s a 42-megapixel beast, and it’s the camera I turn to when I’m going on a serious landscape, portrait or outdoor shoot.

Sony Alpha a6300 – The a6300 my backup camera body, as well as my general carry around camera. I mostly use the 16-50mm kit lens that it comes with.

Lenses

Sony 16-35mm f/4 – The 16-35mm is my primary wide angle lens for landscape photos.

Sony 24-70mm f/4 – The 24-70mm is my most used lens for landscapes. It let’s me get wide, but a decent zoom at the same time.

Sony 70-200mm f/4 – This lens is my go-to lens for portraits. Believe it or not though, I use this a lot for landscapes too.

Sony 90mm Macro – I don’t do a lot of close-up work but when I do I need a Macro lens so I invested in this one. Honestly, it rarely comes out, but when I need it, it’s worth it.

Sony 16-70mm f/4 – This is my walk around and most used lens when I take my Sony a6300 with me.

Traveling With My Photography Gear

As I mentioned above, I like to keep things light and simple. If it doesn’t fit in the bag below (and it’s a small bag), it doesn’t come with me. However, if I’m traveling on a plane, I usually pack my tripod, ballhead, and chargers in my packed luggage. Mainly so I don’t have to go lugging them around in the airport.
