When I first started out, I wasn’t sure what photography gear to buy. I knew I wanted to be fully digital, but hadn’t decided what system to start with. Canon and Nikon seem to continually be battling for first place, but many other brands are closing the gap. But honestly, gear is only a part of the equation, anyway, since it’s the photographer that’s ultimately in charge.
I ended up going with Canon since I’d been using their compact digital cameras for years and have been very happy with my images. Now that I also have more professional DSLR equipment, I can happily report that I’m still satisfied with Canon’s quality and durability. But I’m equally sure Nikon users would say the same.
Because of budget constraints, I simply can’t own everything I want. So the list below is what I currently have but it isn’t my ideal setup yet (I will update this page as I make changes to my arsenal). What makes sense for me right now is to rent additional gear when I need it.
Without further ado, I present to you my gear list.
