I believe in order to create quality images, it is important to have quality equipment and knowledge. I have invested in quality equipment and a quality education in photography to be able to prepare me to create memories for myself and others.


I have multiple external light sources that I only use when I absolutely need to. I am not personally a fan of using artificial light nor do I care for the look of it in the final image. However, desperate times call for it and I like to make sure I am prepared.


Along with that quality equipment, I make sure I have what I need to keep it in good shape. I make sure to never be rough on my lenses. I always have lens caps on when I am not shooting. When I am transferring lenses, I always make sure to do so quickly, safely, and in a clean environment. I also have tools to keep my equipment clean throughout a shoot. Some added bonuses of my camera bag are that it rolls, it can turn into a backpack, and it has a rain jacket of its own! All of this helps insure that my equipment is safe inside.


In making sure I have the best shoot possible, I like to make sure I am prepared in every way possible. That means being prepared for any cuts, scrapes, accidents, or even just fashion needs. I am ready for my clients and myself.


So, that is what I have in my bag. What do you have in yours? What do you think I should add? Let me know!
