MY GEAR LIST
My main camera
Nikon D7200 DX-format DSLR
I love this camera. It produces quality images while still offering a resolution of 24 megapixels. A great choice for the amateur wildlife photographer.
My previous camera
Nikon D3300 DX-format DSLR
I’ve taken some of my best photos with this camera.
My favorite lens
Nikon 300mm f/2.8 IF ED Lens
This lens has transformed my photography. The 300mm focal length allows me to photograph numerous animals from a respectful distance, while the 2.8 aperture brings gorgeous brightness to the image even in low-light situations. As you may be able to tell, I’m absolutely in love with this lens.
My telephoto lens
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Nikon
This lens creates stunning, detailed images when there is ample light.
My light bright lens
Nikon 85mm f/1.8D Auto Focus Nikkor Lens
Oof, the glory of the 1.8 aperture! It’s the largest aperture lens I have, and the images do not disappoint.
My macro lens
Nikon AF FX NIKKOR 28mm f/2.8D Lens
An incredible lens for frogs, flowers and intimate portraits.
My close range lens
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens
I love this lens for close range shots of smaller, less active birds or larger birds when they’re flying. It’s a great lens as long as there’s plenty of light.
My kit lens
Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens
This is the lens that came with my D3300. It’s a highly underrated lens. Check out this article that showcases the power of the kit lens.
My gimbal tripod head
Annsm Aluminum Alloy Gimbal Tripod Head
I use this gimbal head with my big, heavy lenses. It’s another great find for the amateur photographer, as it allows me to track animals while they’re moving. Check out this great video that explains tripod heads.
