So, what’s in the bag you ask?

Over the years I have carried different variations of equipment in many different bags.  I’ll undoubtedly continue to evolve in what I carry into the field, but for now, I have things pretty well situated for my needs.  My kit is primarily set up for landscape work, and is purpose driven to that end.  For the best flexibility with what I like to shoot, I have a collection of lenses that cover from 14-400mm.  My filter collection is 100% Singh-Ray and suits my needs very well in the field whether I am working landscapes or old cars.  Be sure to use my code (KISER10) with Singh-Ray to get 10% off your filter purchases.

I have also built up a rather capable kit for my portrait work which includes both studio and location tools.  Of course, these items aren’t typically with me in the field and are notated with (***).

From time to time I will do reviews on some of the different products that I have used, and those reviews are linked with the specific product, or groups of products.  I am not a paid reviewer and these are just my own experiences with the things that I use the most.

I am part of several different affiliate programs, so by clicking on the links within this page (and in my blogs) you are helping to ensure that I am able to do more and more with my photography.  Also, be sure to check out the recommended reading at the bottom of this page for links to the books that I have been using to further my own skills.  I can’t recommend this list enough for any photographer who is wanting to improve or learn about some specific aspects of photography or post processing.
