Tell us what your one must-have piece of gear is and why:

Holdfast moneymaker – Since I shoot with prime lenses, it helps to carry two cameras at the same time so I don’t have to switch lenses as much. Plus it’s super comfy!



Tell us what your one must-have piece of software is and why:

What’s your advice for someone just starting out?

Be confident in your abilities. When others sense your confidence they will trust you, when they trust you they will open up in front of you. Meaningful organic moments will come out of it.
