Selling my gear is one of the things that I really enjoy. Ever since I moved my office back home, I have had to reduce my gear and de-clutter. I no longer have space to my self where equipment flows out of shelves and fill every box or storage basket in the room. That's how selling my gear is easy and enjoyable. It's just stuff. A few people have asked me, why sell everything? We can't hold on to things. That's what they are, just things. Yes, gear costs a lot of money. Yes, I had to work my ass off, but I've worked hard for everything I own.
Why switch brands?
Honestly, I'm just tired of having a lot of stuff. Already sold a lot of lighting equipment, camera bags, lots and lots of accessories, lenses, flashes and camera bodies. I'm constantly experimenting with new things and constantly looking for awesome equipment but I find myself stuck with the same gear year after year. Ever since I started charging for my passion, I have had Nikon. I've had the Nikon D70, D90, D2xs, D700, D800, and the D810. If that is not brand loyalty, I don't know what is. But what has Nikon done for me? Nothing. Even being a member of Nikon Professional, the brand it's self has done thing for me. Yes, the images I made were sharp and colorful or good quality. Sure.
I also had the Fujifilm x-t1, and all kinds of lenses, flashes, and accessories. I have successfully gotten rid of all of it!
I'm considering selling a few of my unused film cameras. I have about 5 film cameras that I never use, and I'm sure someone can enjoy the nostalgia of film. Traveling light and cutting down clutter is making me very happy.
