The Equipment We Use

Here is a partial listing of the gear we currently have in our bags.  Certainly not all the equipment is required for every photo shoot, and the equipment has also been accumulated over the years.  Generally outside of the basic gear, new pieces have been added or upgraded as specific needs have arisen.  We have always tried to keep in mind that it’s not the equipment that makes the photograph; it’s our vision and seeing the light.

We use a Gura Bag 30L and Pelican cases to carry our equipment in the field.  We also have several smaller Lowepro Photo Backpacks which we use as needed. Here's what’s currently in our bags:
