I’m frequently asked the question, what camera is that? Or, what is your workhorse lens? I’m an extreme advocate of “it’s all about your eye, not your camera”, however in my field of commercial and print photography, lighting and gear play an integral role in quality. Whether I’m on assignment shooting a run-gun event or on location for a 12 hour fashion shoot, I have my setup on lock and a full proof system that works for me. As a disclaimer, this may not be the setup for you. Note: I’ve worked my absolute ass off to obtain these expensive products and I strongly endorse everything you see.
