The Ultimate Camera

I am a photographer who is interested in gear. However, I am not interested in specs or fancy new features (unless they are relevant) but I look at how gear is going to work for me and my shooting and how it can help take me to the next level of my photography.

Routine

What’s in my bag articles and videos have become quite popular over the past few years with just as many people interested in what gear people use than actually what they capture using it. I have always been 50/50 on this subject and find if I am looking for new gear or interested in the opinion about new gear, that I may purchase, I will watch these videos however I am not a real ‘gear-head’ who will just watch anything and everything gear.

Will Zuckerberg not be happy until he owns every single social media entity?

Inspiration

‘There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking’ – Brian Tracy

In college I remember sitting in my lecturer’s office waiting for him to come and discuss my portfolio for the end of term one. His office was a small room at the end of a giant corridor, which whenever you went to see him would feel like the longest walk in history. Here I sat though looking around at the many cameras littering the office and I remember thinking ‘wow this guy really needs to clean his office…but cool equipment’. Around 5-10 minutes later he walked in with my portfolio, sat down and after the usual pleasantries asked me ‘what inspires you in your photography’.
