While I really think experience, skill and style are what you want to look for in a photographer rather than good equipment, I’ve been fortunate to accumulate some great tools over the years:

Canon 5D mark 3 (The machine)

Sigma 35mm f1.4 USM (The thing that’s usually on the machine)

Canon 50mm f1.2 L lens

Canon 85mm f1.8 lens

 

I also keep these guys in my bag, but I use them only when necessary:

Canon 6D

Canon 100mm f2.8 L Macro lens

Canon 16-35 f2.8

600EX Speedlite 

Phottix Strato ii triggers
