The Equipment Used by Larry Davis

Most people are interested in knowing the type of equipment a professional photographer uses to capture their images. While the equipment is an important part in the overall quality of the images in a photographer's portfolio, it is definitely not a means to an end. Dedication, hard work, and overall talent and skill are the predominant factors in producing good images.

For those of you who are dying to know what type of equipment I use when I go out in the field, I will detail it all here.

Currently, I am using only digital cameras, and have done away with shooting film. Here is a comprehensive list of the equipment I have used to create some of the images on this site:

  • Kodak DCS 760 Professional Digital Body
