As a location fashion & beauty photographer, I have selected the following camera equipment because it compliments my shooting style. As a Think Tank Photo Brand Ambassador, all my equipment travels securely in a Think Tank Airport Accelerator Backpack or Airport Takeoff Roller. These 2 types of bags keep my gear safe and secure while giving me a peace of mind during travel. I’m always on the go from hotel to location or location to airport, I realize my limitations when it comes to traveling with a big setup. Understanding the limitations and knowing my equipment is #1 priority and a definite factor of making thru a location fashion or beauty shoot. My 2 travel bags holds my Nikon D800e, Nikon D4s, and a Hasselblad H5D-50c.

My Nikon D800e is my go-to location camera where it’s durable enough to brave the elements, but rugged enough to take the pounding of continuous shooting without skipping a beat. My glass of choice is the Sigma 85mm 1.4 if I’m shooting natural light, but when it comes to studio strobes or mixed lighting conditions, the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 is my must have go-to lens.
