Why Gear Matters?
We only use professional gear
Some of the gear we use
Canon is the choice for many professional sports photographers. There is a good chance you will see the distinctive white lens on the sidelines of many games and fields around the world. We invest in many different types of camera bodies and lenses to be able to cover many different types of sports and situations.
Basketball is shot in close and medium distant range and requires a fast lens for low light. Football and soccer can be at night and requires a mixed selection. Baseball we are limited on where we can stand and shoot, so very long lenses are needed to get the perfect shot. See the example below about how we can reach that hard to reach spot.
