What's in the bag?

Most good photographers will tell you the most important camera they own is the one they have with them. To an extent, I believe that is true. However, I would say that the most important piece of equipment I own are my eyes and the vision to see what others might often miss. That said, technical aspects and capabilities of a good camera (and there are so many of them these days) do contribute to the quality of a photograph. So what do I carry? Here's a list of all the cameras I have used (and mostly still own) over the years:

• Kodak Instamatic - took it on a road trip out West and that's all she wrote. I was hooked. 

• Olympus 35C - my first "real" camera. No light meter. A great learning tool.

• Nikon FE2s - Tanks with 24-120, 70-200, 24-28 Nikon lenses. Made it all the way to France. I still have them.

• Nikon F100 - Still film, but with a panel of electronic controls - cool!

• Canon 20D - A great little camera - loved the wheel on the back

• Nikon D200 - A real workhorse and first "serious" camera. Added a 12-24 lens to my stable.

• Lumix DMC-LX7 - An incredible little camera with Leica optics. A derringer I always keep in my car.

• Fuji X-Pro1 - A rangefinder style camera that takes Incredible photos equipped with a 18-55 lens. Great for candid street work.

• iPhone 6s - Instagram becomes an obsession

• Canon 5D Mark III - The beast. Currently equipped with a 24-100 lens and soon to come 16-36 2.8 lens.
