Moment Gnarbox 2 0 Lifestyle 35

GNARBOX SSD

GNARBOX SSD

Price: $599.00

I honestly fell in love with the GNARBOX 2.0 SSD while shooting product photos for the launch. However, I really put it to personal use while creating photo work with a non-profit in a remote village in the Philippines. Due to the nature of the setting and conditions, I wasn’t going to be spending time at my computer backing up the images. No power outlets. Nowhere to really get set up with my hard drives. These photos were precious to me, so being able to back up to the GNARBOX was a clutch way to have a sense of ease while out there.

Moment Tele 58mm Lens

Moment Tele 58mm Lens

Price: $119.00

I love this lens and use it for any and all mobile portraits. Many telephoto lenses produce an unforgiving haze around the edges of the frame that drastically affect its quality, but this is tack sharp edge-to-edge.

As a traveling photographer, the 14mm fisheye is the perfect addition to my arsenal.
