Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of equipment do you use?

I’m a longtime Canon photographer. My primary camera is the Canon 5D Mark IV, but I also have a pair of 5Ds, a 6D, and a classic EOS-1N film camera 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 Kodak Portra and Tri-X as well as Fuji Pro 400H.

Do you sell prints?

Yes, I offer fine art prints of many of my photographs. You’ll find more information here.

Do you offer high resolution downloads of your images?

Sorry, I don’t share hi-res digital files or license my photos for others to print.

Can I hire you as a photographer?

My photography ranges widely, from news, events, and editorial work to fashion, lifestyle, and special projects.
