I get this one all the time. My first DSLR was the Canon 10D, and I have stuck with Canon ever since. I usually shoot with the Canon R3 Mirrorless and the Canon 1Dx Mark III camera bodies. I also use a Canon 5D Mark III for landscape and outdoor photos, usually with the EF 16-35 f/2.8L III lens.
For most outdoor sports, my lens of choice is the Canon 400 2.8 and the Canon 70-200 2.8. This last year, I picked up the new Canon RF 28-70 F2 L USM lens, and I love it! While it’s pretty large, shooting at f/2 is incredible, and the colors and clarity are superb. I am slowly going to mirrorless, although I love the DSLR and EF lenses, and I plan to keep and shoot both as long as possible.
My last name is Buscema, which is Italian. It’s pronounced “BOO-SHEM-A”, but don’t worry if you butcher it, most people do.
I’ve had the privilege to shoot a few weddings over the years. I even shot one in the hills of Tuscany in Italy! It was amazing to say the least. However, my passion is really sports, so I leave wedding photography up to much more seasoned pros. If you want a recommendation, just let me know!
Yes, of course! I do have kids that attend CHS and play sports there, so it’s my home school and where I will always keep my allegiance and priorities 😉 Please Contact Us and let me know which school you’re interested in us coming to.
This is an oldie but a goodie. The answer is YES. The best camera to use for sports photography is the one you have. Seriously! Both Canon and Nikon make excellent camera bodies and lenses. Some years, Nikon will be a bit ahead of Canon in terms of technology, then the following gear, Canon will surpass Nikon.
Although I’m partial to Canon, you cannot go wrong with either setup. I happen to also have a lot of money invested in Canon lenses, so switching over to Nikon or anything else, is quite expensive.
I will tell you that a camera body is basically a computer and it ages quite fast. I would always recommend spending your money on really high quality lenses vs the camera itself. Over the years, you’ll swap out your camera body many times before upgrading your lenses.
First, since we’re in North Idaho, let’s quickly define “shot” as “photographed” ok? And actually, yes, I’ve had the chance to photograph a few celebrities a couple times at red carpet events in L.A. for a client of mine. It wasn’t something I was looking to do, but I had fun doing it. I took photos of Christina Hendricks and Jessica Alba on the red carpet.
