My Gear

A lot of people, other photographer but also models ask what kind of gear I use, maybe it’s way to see if I’m serious about photography !? I’m not sure good photo gear makes a good photographer ! However I’m quit sure good gear help good photographer ! ;-)

I personally use Nikon gear ! Why not canon ? Do I think Nikon is better than Canon ? Not at all, It’s just that before I start photography I saw a Nikon D1 in a photo store in Costa Rica which really pleased me. Then, as I wanted to learn photography on the hard way, I bought a Nikon F-80 and since then I stick to Nikon due to the lenses.

Here are the most important pieces of my gear:

  • Nikon D700 (main camera)
  • Nikon D200 (backup camera)
  • AF-S VR NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED
  • AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
  • AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
  • 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor
  • 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor
  • 4 Nikon SB-900 (with their SD-9 battery pack for location shooting)
  • 055CXPRO3 Manfrotto Carbon Tripod
  • BH-55 Really Right Stuff Ball heads for the tripod (Their ball head and L plate rocks!)

Of course I got several stands, backgrounds, bags and some other stuff, but I guess the people interested by my gear got happy with that list ;-)
