My Gear

I’m often asked about gear, so here’s a list of almost everything I use for photography and videography.

Camera Body

NIKON D7200

This is my only camera body at the moment. It’s a crop (APS-C) sensor but the dynamic range is best-in-class and it does a great job with still photographs.

Lenses

Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6

This is actually a kits lens but it is better than the standard 18-55mm kit lens, because of the extended focal range and overall sharpness.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

This is my workhorse lens for landscapes. The range is relatively short, but this lens is sharp and fast. As such, I routinely use it for astrophotorgraphy as well.

Tip: Get the Nikon D7200 bundled with this 18-140mm kit lens to save some money! Click here.

Nikon 35mm f/1.8

This is a beautiful lens. The perspective is true to life and the optics are good. It’s a sharp lens. Use it for environmental portraits and casual shooting.

Nikon 50mm f/1.8

Known as the “nifty fifty” this is a great prime lens for portraits and food photography. It is tack sharp and has great bokeh.

Note: Neither the 35mm nor the 50mm have vibration reduction or optical stabilization. So if you have shaky hands like me, be careful!

Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8

This is my newest lens and I got it for outdoor portraits and all-round shooting. The low f-stop gives shallow depth of field (great for portraits) and the vibration reduction is top notch!

Sigma 105mm f/2.8

This is a relatively new lens for me, but it’s probably my favorite right now. It’s a macro lens, so it’s very sharp. But the optical stabilization and low f-stop makes it a good for portraits as well!
