The best photography gear is not always the most expensive gear

I have always been a frugal camera gear buyer.

Consequently, I’ve always tried to buy the least expensive equipment that would adequately do my work.  Over time, I’ve bought some stuff that was not good enough and I had to upgrade; whereas other items performed exceptionally well.  This list outlines the photography equipment that I have learned to love and trust.

This page is an ongoing work in progress.  As equipment evolves, I will adapt this page over time.  I will also be producing videos for each item describing the quirks, my thoughts and detail on each one.

The links to the products I recommend are affiliate links.  In other words, I get paid if you buy the item I endorse.  You will not pay a premium if you buy the photography merchandise I recommend.  If you purchase any of the merchandise I hype, the vendor will send me a small commission for the sale.  Think of this as a fee for the time and energy I put into making this photo product review page.

This is my commercial photography studio and here is the gear I use

This is a photo of my Toronto product fashion and food photography studio.  Below is a list of the equipment I use every day.

As a professional photographer, I’ve bought plenty of camera equipment.  Some of it was useful, others not so much. 

On this page, I will list my favourite photo tools that I recommend that you should buy.More

I tested this photography equipment under real-world conditions.  I used this equipment to run my studio. I’ve shot with this gear on-site and in-studio. I’ve learned which products can take the abuse of multiple installs and the other products that can’t.

I will provide you with the low-down on each of these products that what I like and hate about each. I will also tell you how critical the product is to my photography business and how important it is to buy.

As a general rule, I prefer to own gear. I feel this way for many reasons.  It’s more convenient, I can test the product’s limitations, and I can get very familiar with my tools.  Fumbling with my equipment while a customer watches is embarrassing and undermines my credibility.  If I am struggling with my gear is stressful, therfore I pick the tools that will make my life easier.
