My favorite Canon gear


Camera Bodies

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Frame Digital SLR Camera Body - This is my favorite DSLR. The 5D Mark IV is the workhorse camera body for the advanced amateur and working professional. If I have to do a job for real money, this is the camera I want in my bag.

Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera Body - When Canon released their first full-frame mirrorless, it quickly replaced my 5D Mark IV as my go-to camera. This one is always in my bag. It has the performance of the 5D with tons of quality of life improvements.

Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera Kit w/EF-M15-45mm - Small and compact but creates great images like a larger DSLR. Now you have no excuse for showing up anywhere without a camera.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Digital Camera - This is a fun walk around camera. Stick it in your pocket. Shoots like a serious camera.


Camera Lenses

EF Lenses

Canon EF 16–35mm f/2.8L III USM Lens - Great for travel and nature. Super sharp,

Canon EF 24–105mm f/4L is II USM Lens - Standard walk around lens. Good for general travel and street photography.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens - Love this lens! Macro that you need for close ups. You can also use it for portraits.
