My Gear

I think that photographers should use whatever brand of camera they like and can afford. I’m a thrifty shopper and many of my cameras were purchased used or as “refurbs” at less than retail price. But over the years other photographers have asked me what gear I you use and this is my answer. I keep most of my gear in specific backpacks so that I can grab one, two or three  bags and go. Tip: I also keep chargers for each camera in each backpack.
