Gear Bag | Southern California hybrid wedding photographer


I’m a gear head so I invest in a lot of professional grade camera gear. My gear represents my investment and the long term commitment to what I do.  With professional gear, it takes my mind away from worrying about my equipment in the field so I can focus more on photography.  I also carry backup gear so I can continue with what I do even in the case that my main equipment fails. I will need more than a bag when I have to carry all these.


Film cameras: Pentax 67ii and Pentax 645nii medium format cameras.
Digital cameras: Nikon D800 and Nikon D750.
