Macbook pro 13’ (Touch bar, 2018)

I do a good majority of my design work on this bad-boy. With this laptop being 13 inches, it is super portable and light allowing me to get work done anywhere.

Airpods

The Apple Airpods have become an essential part of my life. I take them with me anywhere I go just like my wallet. If you enjoy listening to music or use music to focus these are perfect for you.

 

Asus 27’ monitor

I’ve been using the Asus VN279Q 27 monitor for about 2 years now and it hasn’t failed me yet. The screen size is great as well as the thin bezel design. The colors on the monitor are well-done, however, I did needed to turn up the brightness to about 75% to get a better picture.

Nikon D5300

The Nikon D5300 is a great entry/mid level DSLR. The auto-focus points are great. At first, I didn’t think I would need all the features that this camera offered but once I started playing around with it, I found myself using the features every time I shoot. With this being said, I would not recommend this camera for HEAVY filming purposes.

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 art for Nikon

This Sigma 85mm lens is a beast! The focus is very sharp and the bokeh produced by this lens is simply amazing.
