This is my main camera.....

Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR

  • 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen

  • 45-Point All Cross-Type AF System
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Expanded ISO 25600, Up to 7 fps Shooting
  • Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC
  • RGB+IR 7560-Pixel Metering Sensor





     This is also my main camera, this 80D and the 6D Mark II are almost always with me at the same time. My 80D is used just as much or more than my 6D but is  "somewhat" a backup camera to my 6D Mark II. It takes amazing photos with its great dynamic range and many available settings. This camera also has outstanding video making capability and I use it for doing many of my YouTube videos and many photos in my photo gallery were taken with this camera. This camera is a blast to use! The 80D is an all around top shelf camera in my opinion.

Camera Lenses....

Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens


This is my #1 lens for my Canon 6D Mark II Camera and is almost always on it. One of the sharpest lens I own and best wide angle lens Canon makes in my opinion. I use this lens most often for home interior photos of my cabinetry work and as my main wide angle lens for landscape photography.

At 35mm it's also an awesome walk around lens for casual shooting.





Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens

This is my #2 lens and is an awesome telephoto lens! Great color, sharp images, and super fast and accurate focusing. This lens basically lives most of the time on my Canon 80D. It's also a really nice lens for events and wildlife photography when the reach is needed and for telephoto landscape shots.

This lens has never let me down! ;)


Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens

This is probably my most favorite lens that I have. It's takes extremely crisp and clear images and most of the close up macro photos of insects and flowers etc., that I am taking I am using this lens. It does have its limitations when it comes to taking everyday type of normal picture taking, but, I must say, I often have the most fun with this lens!




Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is a great portrait and still's lens that nicely separates your subject from the background, and it's also great for certain types of landscape shots. I often use this lens or my Vintage Takumar 85mm for many of my flower/plant life types of images and other stills. I also like to use it for certain telephoto landscape images.

The lens is very sharp with great optics and built tough!




Tamron SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens


This is a great focal length walk around every day multi-purpose type of lens and I am really using the lens a lot recently. It's amazingly sharp and the color rendition is beautiful. I usually always make sure this lens is with me regardless of the type of images I am going after on an outing....it's one of the most useful and versatile lens in my kit!  

The 5 Lenses above I carry with me almost all the time in my gear bag....


Super Zoom/Telephoto Lens....

Sigma 150-600mm 5-6.3 Contemporary DG OS HSM Lens

I call this lens, "The Beast". It's quite the zoom/telephoto lens and great for wildlife and sports shooting. It's really sharp and takes great images, and it's a blast to use. Here's some photos I took with it at Lake Nottely. Click Here 

Other Lenses....

Canon Ultra Wide EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens

This lens is basically my main video lens for my 80D and T6i and does almost all my videos when I at home making YouTube Video's and most other video's made away from my house. The face tracking and silent focusing motor in this lens is absolutely amazing. It also takes amazingly sharp and colorful images, it's a great wide angle multi-purpose lens.
It's also an amazing landscape and home interior type of lens too!

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens


This is also known as the "nifty fifty" lens or the "plastic fantastic"! This lens is super sharp and is a great portrait and video making fixed lens. I also use this once in a while with extension tubes for some pretty amazing shots doing macro photography. It's just an all around cool lens!

Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Lens


This used to be on my 80D most of the time before I got the 70-300mm Lens, now it actually doesn't get used all that much. It's a great all around lens, from macro shooting to zooming in on distant objects and scenes. It's a pretty sharp, crisp, and clear in almost any situation. It's a really high quality lens. 

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens


This is the kit lens that came with the REBEL T6i Camera. This is a really nice lens and takes quite crisp and clear images. I am mostly using this lens for videos as it has a rather silent auto focusing system built in it.
