KNOW YOUR GEAR

I shoot with a Nikon D800 body and mostly a 24-70mm lens. If a additional light is needed, I have 2 SB910s for on and off camera flash. When photographing life in real time, your equipment needs to keep up with you, so purchase accordingly. 

-Dual card slot
-16GB minimum cards with at least 90MB/s
-Your gear includes more than glass.

GOOD THINGS TO LEARN FROM OTHERS

  1. https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/photographers 
    • A photographer should always know what they are and are not allowed to do while photographing and how to respond to the situation should they be approached.
  2. Always have back-ups of everything. EVERYTHING.
  3. Create a business sense of under-promise and over-deliver.
  4. Never let your memory cards out of your site.
