The Tools

When working a job the first part of any workflow is picking the right gear. Thankfully, I have an extensive working collection of new and vintage cameras that I can use in any job I'm hired for not to mention shooting for my own enjoyment. While this only represents a cross-section of my collection, these are the workhorses that come out on the job.

While the cameras listed below are my primary tools when photographing jobs I also have various early 20th-Century Kodak Cameras, SLRs, Rangefinders, and Toy Cameras.
