I’m a longtime Canon photographer. I have a pair of 5Ds, a 6D, and a classic 1N that I love. My favorite lenses are the 35mm f/1.4 and the 85mm f/1.2, but like most photographers I rely heavily on zooms, especially for news and event photography (see Three Essential Zooms for more on this). For on-location shoots, I use Profoto lights and modifiers, or, in less demanding situations, a set of trusty 600EX-RTs along with a Speedlite transmitter. My other equipment includes Matthews stands, Induro tri- and monopods, ThinkTank bags, B+W filters, and Joby SlingStraps. I have a special place in my heart for film and still shoot Portra 160, Tri-X 400, and Fuji 400H.
