My Gear

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about the gear I use so here I am to let the people know. 


Cameras


Olympus FE370 | 2007-2009

I wasn’t going to put this camera here at all because I got this back in junior high school. My mom probably doesn’t know but she’s part of the reason why I got into photography. She always had a camera around us growing up where she would take on my field trips back in elementary school. So this was the first camera she bought me back in the 6th grade. 


Nikon D3300 | 2015-2017

This is the camera that I learned all the basics on. This is what I used to start building my foundation. 


Nikon D500 | 2017-2020

This camera here is what I’ve been using since 2017 summer to about ending of October. It’s still a crop sensor camera but it was a workhorse and got the job done. A lot of the work y’all saw over the years was done with this camera here. 


Nikon D850 | 2020 - Present

It was definitely time for an upgrade to a Full Frame camera. Not much of a difference between this and the D500 though, besides the quality of the camera. 


Lenses 


Nikon 50mm 1.8G

The first prime lens I bought back in 2017. This is definitely my go-to for almost any shoot.


Nikon 24-70mm 2.8E ED VR 

Got this when I upgraded my camera. Whenever I want some wide-angle shots or I’m shooting an event this is the lens I would use. Mostly use it in a studio as well. 


Nikon 35mm DX 1.8G

Mainly used this on my crop sensor camera. It acted like a 50mm. 


Sigma 18-35mm 1.8

Another lens I used on my crop sensor camera. When I got it, it was my go-to lens.
