I am frequently asked as to what equipment I use, this my Photography Equipment and Gear:
“Cameras and lenses are simply tools to place our unique vision on film. Concentrate on equipment and you’ll take technically good photographs. Concentrate on seeing the light’s magic colors and your images will stir the soul.”
Canon EOS 5D Mark II: The EOS 5D Mark II features a huge, full-frame sensor 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, And since it is full-frame, all lenses will deliver the angle of view they would on a 35mm camera without a conversion factor. Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.
Canon EOS 40D: comes with a ten million pixel CMOS sensor, It can accept EF and EF-S lenses. Like its predecessor, it uses an APS-C sized image sensor, resulting in a 1.6x field of view crop factor.
Profoto Studio Lighting and Strobes: Studio 1000/1000 Air Flash Heads, Sync Cord, Zoom Reflectors, Umbrellas, Light Stands and etc.
Speedlight Flashes: Canon Speedlite 580EX II, Sigma EF-530 DG Super Electronic Flash and Canon Speedlite 430EX II.
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens: The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens is one of the best Canon general purpose lenses made, designed to include outstanding image performance, ultimate operability and weather resistance.
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens: has an excellent focal length range that includes the longest focal length found in a Canon zoom lens. This long focal length and focal length range combine with very good image and build quality to make the 100-400 one of the most serious wildlife and sports lenses Canon sells.
Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG APO HSM Macro Lens: This large aperture telephoto macro lens enables you to shoot up to 1:1 life size close-ups. Its large F2.8 aperture makes it an ideal lens for digital SLR as well as film SLR cameras. Super compact and lightweight, this large aperture telephoto lens features life-size macro capability.
Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM: This lens, like most of the Canon stable, is nicely finished in a slightly off-gloss plastic and sports an all-metal mount. Real freedom of framing in a lightweight, compact and fast-focusing lens. The EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM is an excellent all-purpose lens for EF-S mount EOS cameras.
Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f3.5-4.5 DX Fisheye Lens: The Tokina AT-X 10-17mm fisheye zoom is a very unusual super wide angle lens. with an up to 180 degree field of view. With this lens an entire view or vista can be captured, wider than the human eye can see.
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens: One of the finest telephoto zoom lenses in Canon’s EF line, this 70-200mm f/2.8 lens offers comparable optics to a single focal-length lens. The lens employs four UD-glass elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, creating sharp, high-quality images regardless of the application.
Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens: High performance telephoto zoom lens. This lens has two SLD glass elements in the front lens group and one in the rear lens group It is able to shoot with maximum magnification 1:2 at the focal length of 300 mm.
Lensbaby 2.0: a simple lens with a bellows or ball and socket mechanism for use in special-effect photography. The aperture can be varied from f2.8 to f8 via the use of a series of fixed aperture stops.
Kenko Extension Tube Set: Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality.
Canon Extender EF 1.4x Converter, Canon Extender EF 2x Converter: The Canon Extender is an easy and very affordable way to dramatically extend the reach (focal length) of compatible Canon L Series lenses (and a few additional lenses).
