Ben Briones Studios Equipment List

One of the first things beginners always ask industry professionals is what equipment they are using. I know when I started off it was it was a question I would always ask.

Now I am not a gear-head nor do I care to have the latest gadgets in photography. I do not want to break the bank. In my opinion, an artist creates with what he is given.

The most common misconception in the photography industry is that the equipment makes the photographer better. My advice to any aspiring photographer looking to make a living off the trade is to stick to the equipment they begin with for 2-4 years at least before switching out or upgrading. The reason I say this and many industry leaders agree is because you must master your equipment and not let it control you.

I have owned my equipment for more than 7-years. The newest piece of equipment I own is probably my Canon 6D purchased in January 2013 and my travel light stand. The rest of the items I have had for 5-years or more.

Today you will get to see all the equipment I use;

CAMERAS: Canon 5D and Canon 6D

LENSES: Canon 25-35mm f/3.5, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Canon 40mm f/2.8 and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8

LIGHTING: Canon Flash 430ex II, Canon Flash 380ex, Alienbee 800

TRIGGERS: Pocket Wizard Plus II Transceiver and Cowboy Studio Wireless Triggers

LIGHT STANDS: Manfrotto 420B 3- Section Combi- Boom Stand and ProMaster LS-CT Compact Travel Light Stand
