What is in your camera bag?

I do my best to travel light whenever I can, so I’ve trimmed my bag down to the bare essentials. This lets me move around effortlessly, but still have the equipment I need. This is what originally led me to the Sony Mirrorless system - it’s compact but powerful.

  • 2 x Sony A7 III’s
  • Sony 24mm f1.4 G Master
  • Zeiss 55mm f1.8
  • Sony 85mm f1.4 G Master

What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

For as long as I can remember, my go to lens has been a 50mm or some sort of variance of it. At the moment my go to is the Zeiss 55mm and an A7 III. I love the versatility of the combination, and the overall size is incredibly lightweight and discreet. This helps me keep a low profile and get the shot I need without becoming a distraction.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

My most memorable moment with Sony Alpha didn’t really even involve shooting on it (although that did happen later). I was in New Zealand hiking up a mountain which had received an unexpected dumping of snow the night before. I hadn’t packed the correct footwear, or the correct clothing - and I was dragging myself up this mountain cursing myself for being so careless.

I had made the exact same climb a few years earlier with another camera system strapped to my back, and I remember so clearly reflecting on how much more miserable I was then (and in perfect conditions no less!). The images I took at the top of the mountain this time around were far, far superior - but the experience of getting there is what sticks with me the most.
