What kind of lens did you use – now on my pinterest boards!


I shoot a lot of different types of subjects – but the overall theme is always natural and candid.

I need to be able to shoot quickly and capture the moments without a whole lot of set up.  For that reason I use very fast Canon lenses.

My primary go – to’s are the 24-70 2.8L, the 70-200 2.8L IS, the 35mm 1.4, and the 50mm 1.2. (Check them out on BorrowLenses if you’d like to try before you buy!)  I get a lot of emails about what types of lenses I use for what situation, so I have put together some Pinterest boards with inspiration.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy!

    I have yet to see a more compelling argument for the 70-200 f/2.8(s) than ‘the’ Shoep and John. Still grateful for that image.

    On my 5D II, I love my 24-70 2.8L for shooting everywhere. My Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS when I am at an air show or race track and I cannot get real close. The big lens also works great for outdoor weddings. You can hide off to the side and see the tears.

    I would love to see any thoughts/suggestions to your camera bags (roller/shoulder) and any tips to buying one.
    Thanks for your continued inspiration and joy in your pictures,
