It’s a debate that’s gone on for as long as photography has been around. Does the gear matter? Photographer Erik Wahlstrom wanted a definitive answer to this question, and enlisted the help of five well known photographers; Thomas Heaton, Christine Bartolucci, Alan Brock, Dan Bullman and Ben Horne.
Each of them provide their own answers to this question. And they do vary a bit, but they all seem to suggest the same thing. Yes, the gear matters. Although probably not for the reason you might think. It’s not about having the latest and greatest kit. It’s about having the gear that gives you the results you want.
