My Gear - Justin Askew / Man And His Camera

I have always been told that it is not the gear that makes a great photo it is the photographer. As true of a statement as that is when I'm out in the woods at 5 in the morning I want to know that I have gear that is going to turn on whether it is warm and sunny, raining or snowing. I try to buy the best equipment to make sure I produce the best results for Fine Art Prints that will last a lifetime.
