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.

GOOD THINGS TO LEARN FROM OTHERS
- 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.
- Always have back-ups of everything. EVERYTHING.
- Create a business sense of under-promise and over-deliver.
- Never let your memory cards out of your site.
