current gear

There are people who say gear doesn't matter, but it does. Gear is not the most important, but it does affect the way your photos look and more importantly it affects the way you feel while you take a photo. It influences your work and, therefore, its part of the end product. 

The camera is important to me, especially how a camera feels in my hands, how the release of the shutter makes me feel. How a photo makes me feel when I look at it. Cameras have to challenge me like the iPhone does whenever I use it. I rather have an out of focus photo taken with a Hasselblad of my daughter than a perfect grabbed still of a 4K video. That's why I'm so attracted to film cameras, I love "getting the shot", the process of film and the look and feel of old film cameras.

I deliberately keep my gear to a minimum so I can concentrate on the actual shooting and the surroundings. I only use natural light and want to be able to carry everything in my camerabag.
