Lucio Landa

I’ve been a full time professional photographer for the last two years of my life, having started as a documental wedding photographer. Today I am known internationally for my Equine and Lifestyle photography work. I always was a Nikon user; my first camera was a Nikon D60 kit about five years ago…

Since I start with photography I was lost in gear… I bought every piece of glass and every body that I could, and then I discovered that the escence of photography is not about the gear… It’s about light, shadows and the story on the photo…

Now I try to keep it simple. I do 99% of my work with a Nikon D3 and a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII. I think it’s the best combo ever!

I also have a Nikon D600 (not in the picture) as a backup body and I use it when I need bigger resolution images and when I need to have a second camera with a fast wide lens.

The other 2 lenses that I use are Nikon 24-70mm f/ 2.8 and Nikon 50mm f/ 1.4.

I have a Nikon TC-20E III 2x Teleconverter for my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 but I really don´t like it… so it´s rare that I used it.

About the light I always try to use natural light, but when I need more I have a Nikon SB-900 Speedlight.

I use PocketWizard Plus III ‘s for remote triggering and off-camera flash.

I also have a GoPro Hero Black 3+ that I use only as a photo camera when I need to shoot in places where my other cameras don´t fit or it´s too risky.

I always shot in RAW, always! So for the postprocessing I use Adobe Lightroom on Macbook Pro 15″ Retina Display.

For my gear transportation I use a National Geographic Earth Explorer Backpack (the large one). I also had a lot of backpacks, bags, cases, etc… But I found everything that I need on this backpack! Everything fits in it! Extremely tough and huge! Looks cool and it doesn´t scream that it is full of photo equipment!
