The Photo Bar Podcast


Dec 15, 2017

In this episode, I talk about how I started my business with just a Nikon d3000 and a Nikon 85mm 1.8 lens. From there my gear collection exploded to multiple camera bodies, lenses like the Nikon 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm and many more, tons of flashes, and so much more gear than I ever needed. I had the dream gear setup most photographers dream of! Then I got burned out, exhausted and sore, and miserable of it so I sold it all! That's right, I sold everything except two camera bodies, a Sigma 35mm lens, 85mm lens, and a few flashes. I talk about the photography gear progression many of us go through, as well as, gear acquisition syndrome. I also discuss how renting is a great option too buying and the switch to FujiFilm from Nikon, and much more.
