FAQ: Photographers

What kind of equipment do you shoot with?

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and a 5DMKII.  Lenses I own - 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.2, 85mm 1.8, 16-35mm 2.8, 24-70mm 2.8, 100mm 2.8, 135 2.0.

How did you get into photography?

My mom was taking some community college photography classes when I was 14 and she took me into the darkroom with her.  It was love at first develop (which is ironic since I haven't been in a darkroom for a few years now).  I took classes in high school and went on to earn a BFA in Photography.

Do you bring back-up gear to shoots?

Absolutely! Getting back-up gear (or even borrowing from a friend to have on hand) is essential. Back-up batteries (I have more than I could ever use) for my camera and flash are just as important.

Did you go to school to become a photographer?

I went to Brigham Young University and got a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, but I know many incredible photographers that didn't go to school at all.

What photo-editing software do you use?

I use Lightroom for all batch-processing and Photoshop for fine-tune editing.  Everything that gets blogged or printed has been through both programs.

Is photography your full-time job?

Yes.
