So with Google Analytics I can see what keywords people use when arriving at my site. It seems ALOT of you have typed in Jacki Bruniquel Equipment, Jacki Bruniquel Lenses, Jacki Bruniquel Wide Angle lens. So I decided to do this quick blog post on my equipment. I am a Nikon girl and I have shot Nikon since moving over to digital. Here goes …..
IN MY BAG EVERYDAY
2 professional Nikon full frame bodies – 1 Nikon D4 D700 Bodies
Fun waterproof point and shoot Nikon Coolpix – AW100
Nikon SP 800
Nikon SP 900
STUFF WHICH I DON’T USE ALL THE TIME BUT HAVE
Jinbei Rechargeable RD Battery Pack with 1200 Watt head (I have had alot of problems with this light … I do use it but wouldn’t recommend buying one … it takes forever to recycle and is HIGHLY temperamental)
Mamiya RB 67 with various lenses
A few other vintage film cameras
I have bought pretty much most of my equipment from Orms in Cape Town. The reason for this is that I have a long relationship with Mike Orms and consider him a friend. He has given me really great prices on everything and has personally looked after me. I really appreciate the service that they give me and am therefore a loyal customer. Nikon also really looks after pros who have bought their equipment here and paid their taxes. If anything goes wrong or even if you just need a service they bump you up to the top of the queue so you don’t have to wait around for weeks to get your gear back.
YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT!!!
As a newbie photographer you may look at all of this and want to curl up into a ball and cry. This equipment has cost me a fortune but that is why I am not a cheap photographer, I take my craft very seriously. Let me tell you though that I remember feeling like I would never ever get there and that buying all this extremely expensive stuff was just never going to happen. But ….. I put my mind to it and I worked hard, bloody hard, I made sacrifices and I made the decision that I WOULD BE ABLE TO BUY MY GEAR. And then ….. I did!!!!!!! The truth is there are now other things that I want like fancy lighting and better bodies and so on. With photography it just never seems to end.
