Request a Shotkit

Shotkit features the camera gear of the best professional and amateur photographers from around the world, giving you a unique peek at the tools of the trade. I have contacted or been contacted by many photographers who have kindly opened up their camera bags and given us an insight into their technical process. However, there are still a multitude of great photographers out there just waiting to be discovered!

Shotkit is a way to see what gear photographers use, and also to showcase their work on a global stage. In the first couple of weeks alone, Shotkit was proud to welcome over 60,000 visitors from all over the world. This means that if you were involved, your work has been under the eye balls of a lot of photography enthusiasts!

Which photographer’s gear would you most like to take see? Leave their name along with why you think they should be on Shotkit in the comments below and let’s see what we can do ;-)

  1. Helene on March 20, 2023 at 2:47 am

    Hey Mark,

    I recommend Natalia Kempin (Natalia Die Hexe) from Germany.
    She is 100 % into concert / live photography!
    Most of her works represent big metal and rock events such as Wacken (80K visitors), Summer Breeze (40-45K visitors), but also “single” shows and concerts.
    Her works were published in the music magazines (e.g. Metal Hammer, Legacy, Dark City, Perkusista, Batterie), bands’ biographies (e.g. Behemoth) and CDs / DVDs, but also were seen on NAMM, TAMA drum festival and Musikmesse (e.g. for the Pearl Europe’s booth).
    Apparently, she is also a singer who had released 5 albums with several bands and a model (modeled for a thrash / death metal band from the Netherlands).

    Metal is not an easy genre to photograph since apart of the difficulties a photographer may meet at a show, in order to be successful as a rock / metal photographer (and especially on a festival), one has to be able to shoot under the rain and while being blown away by a hurricane, almost being killed by crowd surfers and pyro effects on the stage and always fighting oceans of dust (a gentle reminder – Wacken, 80K visitors) and a fog machine!!!

    I love her works a lot and follow her pretty much everywhere :)!
    Big thumb up and give her a go!

    • Mark Condon on March 20, 2023 at 10:31 am

      Thanks Helene – we’ll invite Natalia for sure :)

    And the list goes on…

      omg! This will keep me quite busy Rodrigo! Thanks so much for your recommendations.

        Let me know if you need help! eheh

  39. Greg on August 5, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    Hi mark

    I have an idea for you. As a newbie it’s both intimidating and inspirational reading the posts by those turning out stunning images (I’m a wedding photographer but this may apply to others too). I have picked up numerous tips from this site and been amazed at how some of the photographers on here use such simple kit to produce the results they get. Then others use a tonne of kit, homemade gadgets, crazy techniques etc. It’s a brilliant insight into how photographers have found their ‘style’.

    It would be great to have a newcomer Spotlight. Photographers that have been in business for under 2 years. What kit they started with, how they have evolved, influences and the direction they want to head in. Then perhaps the established pros can comment with hints, tips etc. there could be a set 6 questions the newbies have to answer. You could do one a month.

    Anyways, keep up the good work. I thoroughly enjoy reading shot kit for all the styles and genres of photography.


    • Mark on August 5, 2015 at 7:23 pm

      Hi Greg, that’s a great idea – thanks so much for sharing. I need to get my head around how to work something like this into the site, but I agree that it’d be a great resource for newbies. Watch this space ;-)

    • George Neill on August 6, 2015 at 10:05 am

      I’d be open to sharing my noob photography journey. Been shooting for less than two years.

      Everything shot on that page was with a Fujifilm X-20 on my first photo class/workshop.

      • Mark on August 6, 2015 at 8:30 pm

        Not bad at all George! I’ll be in touch if I proceed with this.

I would love to know what these guys take along when they go to work, how they take it with them – ie. packing and transport (on airplanes), and how they carry their gear while working in the field. And of course, at the end of the day when they’re done shooting, what their processing workflow is like.

    Hi Mark,

    There are some beautifully amazing european photographers, especially from Croatia and Slovenia.
    I’d sure love to see some of them featured such as:
    Marko Marinkovic (marinkovic-weddings)
    David and Ena Mihoci ( and
    Samo Rovan (
    Hrvoje Golubic ( he has several websites suvh as golubic-weddings, for his amazing conceptual and fine art and
    Zoran Marinovic (

    Also Jeff Ascough and Kevin Mullins would be great to present themselves.


    • Mark on June 26, 2015 at 3:04 pm

      Thanks so much Sasa! I’d love to have more European photogs on the site. I’ll look at their work for sure :-)

      • SASA on June 26, 2015 at 5:38 pm

        Hi Mark,
        Thanks for your reply, surely they are eager to share their kits and tips with the world :)
        Also – I’ve just remembered that Kevin Mullins is already featured here, but Bert Stephani isn’t :)

    Hello form NYC! I’ve just discovered your website and and so happy that I did. I’d like to see a great newcomer to the photography scene, Shavon Meyers featured on your site. Not only is she a photographer but an amazing filmmaker as well. I’d love to see what she carries in her bag or learn more about her in a feature.

    • Mark on December 18, 2014 at 7:30 pm

      Hi Greg! I’m glad you’re liking the site. Thanks for the tip :-)

  79. Rich on September 11, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    Thanks Mark! I really look forward to seeing all those guys, thanks again!

  80. Rich on September 10, 2014 at 5:15 am

    Hey Mark,

    I would love to see any of these awesome wedding photogs on Shotkit please:


    Thanks so much for all you do to keep us informed and inspired, Shotkit rocks!

    • Mark on September 10, 2014 at 6:36 am

      Hey Rich! Thanks for the comment and kind words – I’m glad you enjoy Shotkit. I’ve already contacted all those photographers in the past actually and they all agreed to contribute :-) Erika just submitted today – weird timing! I’ll be publishing them all in the coming months.

  81. Michael on September 9, 2014 at 12:59 pm

    My older brother, Chris Glenn, he recently left the confines of his desk job to tackle his photography career head on… he’s been killing it lately, granted I never see him anymore I can only assume he’s out shooting (or in a dark corner editing like crazy). Most of his work is down in the Florida Keys. Thanks!

    • Mark on September 9, 2014 at 6:57 pm

      Thanks Michael – I’ll take a look!

  82. Joel on August 22, 2014 at 4:21 am

    I would love to see Sam Elkins, hes a photographer in the Washington area and his style is so emotional. Really well done. Lost of landscapes and portraits his use ( or lack of) color is really amazing. I would really like to see him on ShotKit!

  83. Reese on August 3, 2014 at 3:54 pm

    I hope you can feature Rylee Hitchner. She’s a film photographer specializing in weddings and editorial. Just found your site via Ben Sasso and I’m enjoying it so much. Good luck and keep up the good work here.

    • Mark on August 3, 2014 at 4:02 pm

      Thanks for the tip Reese and I’m glad you’re enjoying Shotkit! I’ll reach out to Rylee this week ;-)

      • Reese on August 5, 2014 at 5:08 pm


  84. Lance on July 28, 2014 at 1:02 am

    I would love to see Aaron Goodis Shot kit. Aaron is an amazing photogrpaher specializing in; landscape, flyfishing , and lifestyle in British Columbia. He is a very generous photographer who has been a big inspiration to me, and always let’s you check out what is in his bag.

    • Mark on July 28, 2014 at 6:24 am

    • Mark on July 3, 2014 at 6:44 am

      Tried to contact him a few times in the past but didn’t even reply to my emails to say no – obviously way too cool for this site :p

  86. Magnus Persson on June 30, 2014 at 6:11 am

    I met James in Bangkok, 3 weeks ago. Nice guy!

  87. Magnus Persson on June 28, 2014 at 9:02 pm

    I would like to see…

    Fabio Bucciarelli
    Jan Grarup
    Pep Bonet
    James Nachtwey
    Guiellm Valle
    Manu Brabo
    Antonin Kratochvil

    • Mark on June 29, 2014 at 7:19 am

      Thanks for introducing me to such a fine selection of photojournalists Magnus! PJ is definitely an underrepresented genre on Shotkit. James Nachtwey’s name cropped up in an interview with Nordica which I’ll be posting soon. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any contact details for him, but consider all the others contacted ;-)

  88. Abbey on June 27, 2014 at 11:20 pm

    Kurt boomer photography! Amazing work with film!

    • Mark on June 28, 2014 at 7:52 am

      We do need some more film shooters on Shotkit! Thanks Abbey, let’s see what he says.

  89. Katie Rudrick on June 17, 2014 at 1:25 pm

    Can you please upload Matt Donovan’s kit from (@itsworthashot on instagram).
    I’ve been following him for a while now he takes the most beautiful landscape photos from all over Australia. Top questions would be: what did you start off with vs what you have now. And what equipment hacks do you have for emerging photographers who can’t afford all the wiz-bang stuff?

    Thank you thank you thank you in advance!!!!!!!!

    • Mark on June 17, 2014 at 8:02 pm

      I’ll see what I can do Katie!

  90. Eric Linneman on June 14, 2014 at 3:03 am

    • Mark on June 11, 2014 at 6:31 am

      Coming soon!

  92. Rudy on June 4, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    Definitely would like to see what she carries in her kit bag as she is more of a environmental portrait/editorial/commercial photographer, and would also add to the female roster as someone asked for.

    • Rudy on June 5, 2014 at 4:31 pm

      (Mackenzie Stroh) for some reason her name and link did not make it with my first post.

      • Mark on June 5, 2014 at 8:42 pm

        Thanks for the suggestion Rudy – Mackenzie’s work is amazing! Fingers crossed she’s keen on submitting to Shotkit!

  93. Joel on June 4, 2014 at 10:55 am

    David Burnett, one of my all time favorite photojournalists. He is legendary for doing things like covering Olympic events with large format cameras or shooting portraits for Time with a Holga. It would be interesting to see what he’s carrying around at the moment and more love for PJs here would be cool.

    Justin Hackworth, he’s does weddings, portraits and some concert photography in Utah. His images always convey an incredible sense of intimacy with his subjects so I think it might be neat to see what he’s using or more importantly not using while getting his subjects to let down their guard.

    • Mark on June 5, 2014 at 8:37 pm

      David has kindly agreed to send in his submission soon :-)

  94. Guillermo on May 28, 2014 at 4:07 am

    I’d love to see a bit more on kits used by lifestyle photographers. Love the site, sometimes it feels like window shopping!

      Not sure what to make of Jared… he hit me up a few months ago, asking me to get in touch, then when I did, he was like, yeah whadda you want?! If he wants to submit, I’m not chasing him for it…

    Would love to see Richard McLaren’s kit as he seems to have shot everyone………..his Mandela image in the presidential palace is amazing.

    • Mark on April 1, 2014 at 10:08 pm

      Was a bit of an effort but have finally got him for Shotkit ;-) The amount of gear Richard owns is phenomenal! Watch this space…

  106. Nicholas gonzalez on March 23, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    I’d love to know the favorite gear of Carey Nash and Two Mann Studios. They are some of the very best in Canadian Wedding photography.

  107. Mark on March 10, 2014 at 8:39 am

      They’re both live on the site now! :D

    It would be nice to see more female photographers since so few have been featured so far, in comparison to the number of male photographers.
