My Photography Gear List – October 2017


** I did an updated Camera Gear List >> You can read what’s in my camera bag HERE **

I have been taking photos professionally for over 10 years and having two adorable doggies in our home, just opens a whole new avenue for photo taking.

My husband and I often get asked what gear we use, so to make it easy, I laid out our gear in this post.

We work with both Canon + Nikon cameras because we like what the equipment can do in different atmospheres and lighting conditions. We always shoot with multiple Canon or Nikon professional bodies and lenses. We are mainly natural light shooters so you probably will not see us use our flashes unless absolutely necessary. We do indoor studio work as well for headshots, newborns, and dog portraits.

Being Amazon Prime Members, we purchase all of our equipment through Amazon. Included are affiliate links for each product that can be purchased directly from Amazon, just as we do.

We love Amazon because they have super-competitive pricing and mega-fast delivery. I’m an affiliate for Amazon which means that anytime someone clicks over from my site and purchases something there, I get a teeny-tiny commission. If you’ve found the free information on my site helpful to you in any way, I would greatly appreciate if you would use the links on my blog to purchase your gear. It won’t cost you anything extra, but it will be a very nice way to say “Thank You, Ren!”
