One of the most common questions I get is “what camera do you use for your landscape/wildlife photography?” The answer to that question is below along with a summary of why I use what I do.
Feel free to ask any questions you have as well.
What I use for Landscape Photography:
Nikon D750 (full frame, great ISO, and 24mp is enough for me right now)
Nikon 16-35mm f/4 (best lens you can get for landscapes with Nikon)
Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 (for astrophotography)
Nikon 24-120mm f/4 (great all around lens)
Lee Filter Holder (it holds filters!)
Lee Little Stopper (for slowing down the exposure times for smooth water)
Lee Graduated Soft Neutral Density filter 0.9 (for toning down the sky at sunrise/set)
Cable Release (needed for maximum sharpness)
Really Right Stuff L-bracket (makes it easy to take vertical shots on a tripod)
Think Tank Pixel Pocket Rocket (memory card holder)
What I use for Wildlife Photography Kit:
Nikon D500 (10fps, and the crop sensor are the reasons I choose this for my wildlife camera)
Tamron 1.4 tele-converter (because wildlife is shy and that's not something to encroach on without rudeness)
Dji Phantom 4 Pro Drone (newest addition that will add a new perspective for some of my photos.)
Tripod and Ballhead:
Feisol Travel Tripod CT-3441T (the best lightweight tripod if you are freakishly tall like myself. Camera comes up to just under my eyes at 6'7)
Really Right Stuff Bh-30 (lightweight and build quality is second to none)
Gura Gear Bataflae 26L (great bag if you have a two camera setup, though discontinued now)
Think Tank Retrospective 30 (my favorite shoulder bag for times when I don't need my full complement of gear)
