What Camera Do I Use?

I often get asked what kind of camera I use. The quick answer is a Nikon D800.

Like most professional photographers I use a DSLR camera with a full frame sensor. The full frame sensor allows me to shoot in most lighting conditions, even in very low light without having to use a flash or any artificial light. I find that being able to use natural light works really well for both online dating photos and corporate head shots. I know that when I’m getting my picture taken, I feel a lot more comfortable without a blinding bright flash going off. And feeling comfortable is a huge key to looking good in photos.

Here is a closer look:

1. Nikon D800: I love this camera. It has a full frame sensor which makes it very sensitive to light, and allows me to take all my portraits in soft natural light. Although after a full day, I have to admit it does get a bit heavy.

2. Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens: This lens is great for getting that blurry, out-of-focus background in portraits. I use this lens when doing slightly more creative headshots and details.

3. Nikon 28-70mm f2.8 lens: I use this lens almost all the time. It’s very versatile, and I’m able to get very striking headshots in all sorts of lighting conditions. If you book a shoot with me, I will most likely be using this lens.
