WHAT'S IN THE BAG?
Today the tools of the trade have all at once become more simple and more complex. They are faster, lighter, smarter and more intuitive. They make the making of images easier, allowing us to push the edge of what is possible in ways we never have been able to before. Sometimes they allow us to be there when we are not, as well as minimize or even eliminate disturbance altogether. But sometimes these tools can also be a trap. We can get too complex, or too lazy, or lean too much on technology to do the job for us.
So I lay out this list of gear mostly because folks are curious. But understand this: they are all just tools each with a job to do that collectively helps share and tell stories of the wonders and challenges of this world. - MIke
