Canon 5D MKII + Vello BG C2.2 Battery Grip

Since I started shooting professionally, I almost exclusively use my beloved workhorse the Canon 5D MKII. I never had any problems with this camera. I took her all around the word, hiked for over 5 weeks in northern Spain through harsh contidions and she is still shooting brilliant pictures. I guess I will never give her away anymore.

I also added an editional battery grip to the camera which allows me to shoot in vertical mode as comfortable as in the normal horizontal position. It also adds another battery to the system (so you shoot with two instead of one) which gives you a lot of power to shoot trough a full busy day. I decided against the original Canon adapter but don't have any complains about the Vello one.

Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS USM

One of my first pro lenses. In the beginning I used it mostly for filming my documentary about the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James). Today, I also use it as an allrounder lens if I don't want to bring to much gear with me.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

The lens I shoot the most with at the moment. I just like everything - but not the weight - about this lens. It's build like a tank, delivers very high quality shoots and just makes you feel like a pro. If you wanna get serious in shooting this lens is a great investment to step up your game.

Profoto Air Remote TTL-C

Triggers my Profoto B1. The remote works like a charm and its easy to adjust multiple flash heads without walking around the studio anymore.

Pocket Wizard Plus X

The classic Pocket Wizard's. Always in use when I don't use the Profoto system. Never had an issue with them other then empty batteries :)

GDrive Mini

Fast, reliable and also a classic. The GDrive Mini is always on my side when I'm shooting or editing on the road. Definetly it misses some of the protective features of the Lacie Rugged Series which is super important while working in the studio or on location.
