All the tools you need to capture your story.
The number one question I get asked is “What camera do you shoot with?”
As such, I’ve decided to write my first journal post about it! Remember all these are just tools - tools to help you translate your message, vision or story. They do not equal experiences, passion, hard work and skills you learn in/from photography. They are storytelling tools. You do not need all of them, either, in fact it’s better to familiarise yourself with the right camera and lens that suits your needs - mirrorless vs dslr, wide-angle lenses vs a 50mm, compactability etc. I travel a fair bit and do hikes and walks and have found my Sony A7riii as the perfect fit for it’s small size and high resolution.

Weighing just 1.1kg, this is one handy tripod! Ideal for taking everywhere from mountain tops to tropical beaches.
Lacie Hard Drive 2TB
At the end of the day I always transfer my images to my hard drive and once I’m back from a trip it is also backed up into another drive. Memory cards aren’t formatted until I’m home as well - just in case!
DJI Mavic Pro
Beeway Waterproof & Shockproof memory card holder to make sure my SD and micro SD cards stay safe
Lucky Camera Strap
Sony 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G
This is my favourite lens to shoot with. I love zooming in from a distance to create layers in an image or find a different perspective on the landscapes I am exploring.
Sony Zeiss 24-70mm f/4
My go-to lens that is adaptable to any situation.
Sony 50mm F1.4
Rocket blower for removing dust, sand and water from my lenses and sensor
Microfibre cloth + Gobe packaging for my filters
I have a collection of UV and ND filters from Gobe. These guys are creating so much positive environmental support by planting trees for every filter purchase. Ethical and clever with 1.4m trees planted so far, the filters are great quality too.
