Over the years, I’ve found myself purchasing, trading, selling, tactfully acquiring, or otherwise receiving and getting rid of lenses. I’ve journeyed through pages and pages of reviews and online forums, spoke to many wonderful skilled photographers and dissected people’s images to find out what I wanted and what I needed in terms of glass. My […]

In a recent podcast conversation, I was able to talk to the fellas over at LensRentals.com.  With their warehouse being full of every type of photography and videography gear, I was curious to know what camera is flying off the shelves in their warehouse.  And their answer might or might not be shocking to some.  Not […]

I’m a big fan of the CamRanger system… particularly when it comes to shooting unique and challenging camera angles.  By being able to remotely monitor and adjust my camera, I can put it in an inconvenient or hard-to-reach spot while still getting the best angle.  I can then use the CamRanger app and hardware to control the […]

I’ve been shooting a lot with small cameras lately. I’ve been on a quest to experiment with mounting multiple cameras in many places.  This has mainly taken place with GoPro cameras for shooting both stills and videos. My go-to piece of grip gear has been my collection of GorillaPods.  From mounting on the ground to wrapping […]

Whether you’re new to photography or a seasoned pro, gear is an essential piece of image capturing.  And finding the right gear for your needs is a very important part of communicating your point of view.  We as photographers deal with budgets and affording the most expensive gear is not always an option.  With that […]

I’ve been working with a great athlete lately Zach DiPaolo.  He flies through the air on motorbikes (a skill I can’t possibly fathom to develop). To do this I needed some specialty gear. This week, Director of Photography Jim Ball and I set out to really capture Zach in as many ways as possible. I […]

I got my hands on the new Nikon DF and let’s be honest, it’s an adorably attractive camera body.  My love of all things retro sparked some interest in this new DSLR with FX sensor.  I watched a few videos and reviews mocking the design and calling it a “marketing scheme” or desperate attempt on […]

I just got a great camera strap…and I hate camera straps. Let me tell why I don’t use camera straps, and why I’ll be using this one from Joby everyday. I don’t use a camera strap around my neck for three reasons. Firstly, it gives a me crick in the neck that won’t go away […]

There are some lenses I just feel bad for. They’re neglected, under appreciated, under utilized all while the stars (like the 70-200 2.8 IS II USM) get all the love. Well, today I’m going to give a little ode to my unsung hero: my Canon 17-40 f4L USM. It may seem a slightly unlikely fellow […]

It’s rare that I step up on my soap box about gear… after all to each their own.  But this one is just a pet peeve as it causes so many potential problems. The lens hood doesn’t point this way when the lens is out of your camera bag! Hoods are reversed when packing the […]
