Choosing the gear I can’t imagine living without is easy. The top of that list includes the following must-have tools that are always with me: my Phase One medium-format camera system, the Mola Softlights Demi Beauty Dish and the Elinchrom 27.5-inch Rotalux Deep Octa (not pictured). This gear, plus a lot more, is what I use on a daily basis. It’s built to last, delivers professional results and makes me better at what I do! I call that a win-win.
