my camera gear

So, people ask me periodically about my gear and what I like to shoot with. I’ve been getting everything prepped for a trip to the rockies this weekend to shoot a wedding for friends of mine and thought I would share. It’s my very first wedding (not counting assisting Yvette way back in the day) and I’m really excited. Plus I’m bringing Morgan to help shoot and we get to mini roadtrip from Aspen to the wedding site with other friends.

So here is what I use, mostly: Canon 5D Mark II, 50mm 1.4 (for tabletop and portraits), 24-70mm 2.8 (this is the lens that lives on my camera normally), piles of memory cards, a Rolleiflex twin reflex for film, Portra film, SX-70 polaroid and new Impossible Project Film, and I just bought a little fuji instax to test out after playing with Emma’s.

Not pictured: the best manfrotto tripod in the world that they don’t make anymore, a 5 in 1, a wide angle lens (I normally rent either a fixed 14mm or, if I’m shooting for the NY Times or for an architect, a 17mm tilt shift lens. I also travel with a mini external hard drive, card reader and laptop. Also not pictured is my iphone, which is almost always in use. But I needed it to take this photo.
