Over the years Andrew and I have spent a small fortune on cameras and gear for shooting my Youtube episodes and taking pictures. I have personally gone through many cameras, Gopros, tripods and microphones. Some things I have loved and some things I have hated. Many things broke due to cheap parts like my old lightweight tripod, or our Sennheiser shotgun mic that rarely ever lasted for more than 5 minutes. Sometimes gear is broken due to user error, like the time my camera strap came untied and my telephoto lens smashed on the concrete in Yosemite or the time our first drone took a swim in the Pacific Ocean. Through all my experiences in different countries, different climates, weather and situations I have come to love certain pieces.
Here is a list of the gear I currently own. This is also a guide for those trying to up their game in the photography or video realm and those looking for great gear for guerilla style shooting.
