GEAR LIST

Shop my camera essentials below.

Here's a list of cameras, lenses, and some of the accessories I use during my travels and everyday shooting.
 
Some things I consider when buying gear: 
  • Price.  I'm not looking to break the bank which is why I tend to go with third party lenses like Tamron.
  • Weight and size.  I look for something that is relatively light and comfortable enough to walk around with, hike with, and travel with.
  • Ease of use.
  • And above all else, quality.  

Cameras

NIKON D780

My main photography camera.  It's a full-frame camera that has two memory card slots, built-in wifi, and does well in low light situations.
DJI MAVIC AIR 2

The drone I use for all my aerial footage.  It's lightweight, easy to travel with, fits in the palm of my hand, and the image quality is great.
SONY ZV-1 CAMERA

My vlogging camera.  The best thing about this camera is how easy it is to use.   It has autofocus and a flip screen so you can monitor yourself while recording.

Lenses

TAMRON 24-70MM f2.8 G2

My all-around go-to lens.  I love this lens because it's versatile, ultrasharp, image-stabilized, has nice bokeh, and does great in low light.
TAMRON 28-300MM F/3.5-6.3

My main daytime hiking lens. It's very light and super versatile. I love not having to pack more than one lens while using it.
TAMRON 70-200MM f2.8 

This high-caliber telephoto lens is ultrasharp, image-stabilized, and great in low light.
NIKON AF-S 50MM f/1.8G 

This prime lens gives you a lot of bang for your buck. It's very small and light, excellent in low-light, and has lovely bokeh, making it a stellar portrait lens.

Accessories

K&F CONCEPT
62'' DSLR TRIPOD


I'm not a fan of being weighed down by heavy bulky gear, especially while hiking or traveling. This is a great compromise between quality and weight.
BREAKTHROUGH
PHOTOGRAPHY ND FILTER


A neutral density filter is essential for achieving that silky-smooth effect in your photos.  It's what I use when shooting long exposures of waterfalls and sunsets.
VANGUARD HAVANA 
41" CAMERA BACKPACK


I love this bag because it fits everything, including my laptop and some clothes with room to spare.  It's comfortable to wear and perfect for travel.
