What is in your camera bag?

Matt's go-to lenses are his 70-200mm ƒ4 or 16-35mm ƒ4. For him, these lenses deliver superb optics but keep his bags light enough to get the job done in a variety of environments.

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

Sony Alpha 7R II along with 70-200mm ƒ4 is his go to combination. This lens is rugged but light and produces beautiful images in all conditions.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

Matt has many incredible memories shooting with Alpha. He recently spent a month in Northern Scotland hiking the off beaten tracks of Glencoe.
