As a professional photographer and videographer, it's crucial to have the right gear to capture stunning images and videos. In this blog post, I'll share the camera equipment I've been using and upgrading over the past five years for various projects, from weddings and events to portraits and more.
My go-to cameras are the Canon R6 Mark 1 and Mark 2. These mirrorless cameras offer exceptional image quality, fast autofocus, and excellent performance in various shooting conditions. Their compact size and lightweight design make them perfect for on-the-go photography and videography.
I use a range of L-series lenses to cover all my photography and videography needs. These high-quality lenses provide sharp images, beautiful bokeh, and excellent low-light performance. My collection includes the following lenses:
Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM: A versatile telephoto zoom lens, perfect for capturing distant subjects and portraits with beautiful background blur.
Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM: A wide-angle zoom lens ideal for landscape, architecture, and interior photography.
Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM: A fast prime lens with macro capabilities, great for street photography, environmental portraits, and close-up details.
Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM: A portrait lens with a wide aperture for beautiful bokeh and exceptional low-light performance.
Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM: A standard prime lens suitable for various photography styles, including portraits, street, and travel photography.
Stabilization and Support Equipment:
Stabilization is essential for achieving sharp images and smooth video footage. I use the Manfrotto 055 tripod and the DJI Ronin-S gimbal to ensure stability during shoots. The tripod provides a solid base for my camera, while the gimbal allows for smooth, cinematic camera movements.
I use a combination of flash units and continuous lights, depending on the situation. My go-to flash is the Profoto A1X, which offers excellent power and versatility. For continuous lighting, I use the Aputure AL-M9 and the Godox SL-60W, along with various modifiers to shape and
Capturing high-quality sound during video shoots is crucial for creating professional-looking videos. I use external microphones and audio recorders to ensure the best possible audio quality.
In addition to my cameras and lenses, I use various accessories to help me achieve better results and maintain my gear. These include filters, memory cards, camera bags, and cleaning supplies.
I rely on a range of software and tools for post-processing, such as Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and video editing softwares. These tools help me fine-tune my images and videos to create a polished, professional final product.
