Leicester Wedding Photographer Equipment
While its true the eyes behind the camera are more important, I believe having the right tools & equipment will help a photographer to excel in all conditions & situations. I take great pride in the equipment I use and have invested heavily in gear that suits my Style.
Although I am always changing my cameras and lenses. I have always stayed loyal to Nikon as my choice for camera & lenses for various reasons.
By the time you are reading this I would have replaced one or two of the lenses above…
Currently, I am running with
2 X Nikon D750’s (love these but just wish they were a lot faster)
9 x prime lenses (I like to remain secretive here). Without going into too much detail I use only prime lenses, and pretty much all of these lenses are best in their class!
I usually have tons of memory cards, and would normally copy a wedding twice in each camera.
2 x Lacie thunderbolt external hard drive (although you only see one in the picture) very handy when shooting 3 or 4 weddings in a weekend.
For all my personal work & Some selective Portrait & engagement sessions I will be using my Leica M & Leica 50mmf1.4 Lens
I put a lot of thought & effort into the pictures I take, so I am obsessed with protecting those pictures and keeping them safe.
I use 1 x 1Tb thunderbolt Lacie drive + 4tb Raid thunderbolt Lacie drive So that my files are backed up X 3 when I am working away from home. Not only do these look good but they are also rugged & have the thunderbolt cable inbuilt.
When I am back at the office, I would immediately back my weddings to my 4 x bay, 16tb G-studio hard drive, for peace of mind & security. RAW files are kept at a minimum of two years in case you loose your pictures and want them in the future.
