Tripods: The most underrated equipment in a photographer’s setup. Don’t cheap out on them!
Feisol CT-3342 legs + Feisol CB-40D ball head: Very well built and versatile tripod. The best feature is that it lacks a center column. I can get it really low, which I do quite often. It’s also very quick to adjust, which is absolutely necessary when trying to take a photo before the waves crash. It’s also very easy to clean as it can get filthy putting it in seawater and sand.
Slik Pro 723CFL legs + Sirui K-20X ball head – My workhorse for real estate and vacation rental photography.
Sllik Pro 614CF legs + Sirui C-10X ball head – My ultimate lightweight tripod.
Sirui T025X legs + Sirui C-10S ball head – Good all around lightweight setup.
Alpine Labs Radian – Motorized pan and tilt motion control device that I can control from my phone. It’s small enough to throw in my back and really adds to the dynamic of a timelapse.
Revolve Camera motorized slider – Affordable solution for motion in timelapse and video.
Tiffen 3-stop ND filter: Couldn’t shoot seascapes without it. Allows me to get long exposures.
Tiffen Circular Polarizer: Makes waterfall photos look really good.
B+W UV filters: Protects the front lens element from sea spray and prevents it from fogging up.
K&F Concept variable ND filter: Cheap filter for shooting wide open for video. It works well enough.
KimWipes Delicate Task Wipers – One of the most absorbent wipes. These are very handy for wiping down the lens when water gets splashed on it. Before this, I was using my shirt to wipe the lens. I missed many good shots because it takes so long for the shirt to absorb all the water, especially when you shirt is soaking wet too.
Lighting – Paul C Buff Einstein and DigiBee, Yongnuo YN-560 III flashes, flash triggers, stands, and umbrellas. Essential portrait tools for shaping light.
DJI Ronin-M – Amazing for smooth video. Possible for hyperlapses and drivelapses.
Mindshift Backlight 26l – Good bag to hold all my equipment for day hikes.
Lowepro Event Messenger 150– Small bag that doesn’t stand out. Great for places where I can drive to the location and I don’t need all my equipment. It can comfortably hold what I need for a photoshoot.
Osprey Aether 60 Hiking Bag – Great for backpacking trips, very comfortable, and holds a decent amount.
Custom built windows computer – Core I7 4970k, GTX 1060, 32GB RAM, SSD main and HDD storage, NZXT H440 Case, BenQ BL2711U 4k Monitor.
