BODIES AND LENSES

I shoot Nikon cameras and am currently using the D810 & D500.  Most of my work is done with the Nikon D810, however,  on occasion–when shooting performances – I need the extra magnification of a crop-factor sensor.  I use both Nikon and Tamron lenses including the Nikon 16-35mm F2.8, Nikon 24-70mm F2.8, Tamron 70-200mm F2.8, Nikon 24-120 F4, Tamron 90mm macro F2.8, Nikon 85mm F1.8 and the Tamron 150-600mm.

Lighting

Broncolor Siros 400 Monolight

The Siros is a reliable studio flash unit with a variety of different features. The three most important features for me are: a flash duration of 1/8000 second to really stop motion; A very quick recycle time; and a speed mode of up to 50 flashes per second, helpful in freezing motion and high volume event photography

Video

I love shooting video with my Nikon D500–using the variety of lenses available produces a wonderfully cinematic look.  Sometimes, though, I need the speed and features of a dedicated video camera.  I chose the Panasonic because of it's size and light weight, but an added bonus is the Leica lens.  Along with that I get zebra striping, focus assist and a nice clean way to do everyday time-lapses.
