What's in the bag? | A detailed list of my photography gear

January 23, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

People often ask me what I carry in my camera bags, so I thought this would be a great place to list my essential gear!

Cameras & Lenses:

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Canon EF 17-40mm USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 IS USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Lensbaby Composer

Speedlites & Modifiers:

And though I don't use flash very often when I'm photographing animals, I've always got my Speedlites with me, just in case: a Canon 580EX II, a Canon 430EX II, a Yonguno YN560-II and a Canon ST-E2 transmitter. 

My favorite light modifiers are the RoundFlash and the Rogue Grid & FlashBenders.


It's massive, and there's always concern my assistant Lauren might blow away while she's holding it, but my 6'x6' Westcott Scrim Jim is absolutely incredible.  I also love my Lastolite TriGrips and TriFlip, too!  The handles are especially convenient when I'm working without an assistant.  


I'm a big fan of Black Rapid's camera straps.  I use the women's RS-W1 strap every day, and the DR-2 Double Strap when I'm shooting events and concerts with multiple cameras.

Hope this helps!  Please feel free to post any questions if you have them.
