Photographers are often interested to see what other photographers are shooting with. Some viewers would be interested in gear, some are not. For those that are, and for myself, I like to maintain a list online of what I have and what I am using, but only as a curiosity. Chances are it won’t tell you anything necessary or useful.

Olympus OM-D E-M1.

Olympus PEN E-PM2.

Olympus Zuiko 14-54 f2.8-3.5 II and 11-22 f/2.8-3.5 lenses for Four Thirds

Olympus m.Zuiko 40-150 f4.0-5.6 and 14-42 f/3.5-5.6 II R lenses for Micro Four Thirds.

Sigma 19mm f/2.8 and 30mm f/2.8 lenses for Micro Four Thirds.

Sony Alpha a3000 (paired with Metabones Speed Booster and manual lenses).

Olympus OM Zuiko 28mm f/3.5, 50mm f/1.8, 135mm f/2.8, 50mm f3.5 macro.

Olympus OM 35-70 f/3.6, Soligor 19-35 f/3.5-4.5.

Assorted filters— uncoated polarizers and ND filters to fit the lenses I use them most on. Most important is my Tiffen HT 0.6 ND grad filter, which I use when I need a little extra bit of information for post processing.

Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod, with Markins Q10 head. I don't use the trick center column of the XPROB series tripods for low-angle shots; I actually replaced it for most purposes with a conventional center column that I sawed the bottom off of, so I can put the legs in their most extreme angle without touching the center column. Much more stable and easier to use that way; the more conventional 055XB would be a slightly better choice for this reason.

Lighting gear includes a Metz 48-AF1 flash and a pair of fully manual LumoPro LP160 flashes with stands and Westcott shoot-through umbrellas.

Peak Design Leash strap on whichever camera isn't in my bag. My usual bag is the LowePro OffTrail 2 waist bag, paired with a Think Tank Keep It Up strap; I also have Think Tank Skin modular bags which I mainly use as super lightweight bags while backpacking.

Post-processing done in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC.

Retired gear:

Olympus E-520, Panasonic DMC-GH2, Olympus E-PL1.

Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 for Four Thirds, Asahi Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4
