Gear List

If my gear can survive the rigors and abuse I put it through, you can rest assured this gear will perform for anybody. My approach to gear is striking the perfect balance between efficient and effective. In other words fast and light, and superior quality. My clients expect the absolute best from me and my products, however it might not be realistic to have a large foot-print Hollywood style filming setup – that would be effective maybe, but not efficient. My studio is the outdoors, and moving quickly through my environment to keep up with professional athletes is paramount. My gear choices are a reflection of my niche, and my shooting style.
