Wedding Photographer and Videographer for the past 8 years. I also shoot everything from automobiles and architecture to events, headshots, nightlife, and glamour as well.

Lastolite Hi-Lite Portable Backdrop

The HiLite background allows the photographer to work in a way that was extremely difficult to achieve in the past, ‘High Key’ photography on location and in restrictive spaces. By rear lighting the white background itself there is no longer a need to use a background light behind the subject. Furthermore, because the background is actually illuminated it means the subject can stand virtually right in front of it without casting a shadow. The HiLite backgrounds also works as a large rear softbox and illuminates the subject as well, meaning you can use just one other flash head to light the subject from the front. What’s more, the whole thing is collapsible and portable. Much easier and quicker to set up than a roll of seamless paper (takes up less space as well!). No need for light stands, crossbar, or a long roll of paper! You can also use hot lights in short periods for high key video as well!

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

If you're looking for a great, sharp, all-purpose portrait lens with Image Stabilization, you've found it. Compact, internal focusing, and one of the best IS systems (Hybrid, which corrects for up/down/left.right as well as in/out) make this lens an awesome addition to a kit. Oh, and it takes pretty good macro shots as well.

Great lens! Brandon was super easy to coordinate with. Will totally rent from him again!

Met twice in neutral locations for pick up and drop off. For the pick up he was an hour late and for the drop off 30 minutes late without any notice that he was running late.
