“Over the years my kit bag has become heavier and heavier as my interest in the subject has grown. One thing I’ve learned over those years is that it pays to buy quality. Using cheap products and materials can make your images suffer. Of course, a great kit bag doesn’t make you a great photographer but if you use the right equipment for the right job it makes capturing the right image a great deal easier in my opinion.”
