Below is a list of the equipment that I currently use, as well as some that I have used in the past and can strongly recommend but no longer own.
My current camera, the Sony A7RIV.
This 61 mp, 10 fps beast of a camera delivers the best of the best image quality, as well as incredibly fast autofocus and animal eye tracking.
A truly amazing peice of equipment that will always have a place in my bag.
The SanDisk extreme pro and Sony tough 256gb cards are some of the fastest memory cards available for the high end sony mirrorless cameras, and when shooting in high speed situations, memory card speed is very important.
Sigma 105mm f2.8 Art Macro
Laowa 85mm f5.6
This is my current lens for my mirrorless macro setup. Being only 259g, its perfect for a lightweight small macro photography setup! as well as being as sharp as Laowa's 100mm f2.8!
Laowa 100mm f2.8
In my opinion, this is definitely one of the best macro lenses on the market. I used to use this lens for most of my macro work before upgrading to Laowa's 85mm f5.6. When this lens is combined with a good flash and diffuser, the images are tack sharp. And because of its ability to focus to infinity, it can be used to photograph larger creatures such as frogs or lizards too.
Laowa 15mm f4
The widest macro lens on the market today, the Laowa 15mm f4 is an amazing lens that can capture really unique wide angle images!
Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5-5X
The Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5-5X lens is excellent for super small subjects such as slime molds or mites!
Sony 20mm f1.8 G
An amazing lens that is just perfect for landscape and night photography, that f1.8 aperture lets in a great amount of light in order to capture as much detail as possible.
Gitzo Adventury 45L
The best camera backpack that I have ever used, the Gitzo Adventury 45L bag is perfect for holding all of my equipment, as well as my tripod on the side, spare clothes and a drink for those long treks in nature! A high-quality camera backpack can make all the difference in the world, allowing you to focus on capturing the perfect shot without worrying about the safety and security of your valuable equipment
Sony 200-600mm f5.6-6.3 G
Personally, I see this lens as the best long range zoom lens out there. Definitely a must have for any photography adventure where bird and mammal photography opportunities may occur!
Godox v350ii S
This flash is tiny and lightweight, making it my primary camera flash that I currently use for 99% of my photography, I definetly couldn't leave for a shoot without this in my bag!
A great macro lens especially for people first getting into macro photography! also nice to have a macro lens with autofocus to capture some nice sharp flight shots of the insects in the garden and local meadow!
Godox V860ii Flash
My previous flash, now my backup flash!
Yongnuo YN560iii Flash
A reliable flash that I use for focus stacking
Rollei Alpha Mark II Tripod
My primary tripod that I use in conjunction with my focusing rail for focus stacking!
K&F Concept Travel Tripod
My first tripod, a great peice of kit for travelling lightweight!
Wimberly Macro Clamp
An amazing tool for macro photography, allowing me to carefully hold a plant in place while holding the camera with both hands!
Rollei T7S Mark II Ball Head
A great quality solid ball head for my Rollei Tripod, perfect for mounting big lenses or focusing rails onto!
Sony RMT-P1BT Remote
An amazing tool for reducing camera shake, ultimately improving sharpness and image quality in a lot of scenarios.
