The Equipment

Having good equipment doesn't make a photographer great - but it does help. 

I've started with all entry-level gear and have over time invested in higher-grade cameras and equipment as I see what works for me and what doesn't. 

Some people (and businesses) care about the equipment the photographer as a way to further gauge how serious photographer is about their craft which is why I decided to list out some of my gear below.
