Photographer Erik Wahlstrom explores the question of whether or not having the latest and greatest photographic gear really matters.

How many times has this question come up? Does photographic gear really matter? Do you REALLY need the best, latest, top-of-the-line camera to produce great work? Well, there’s a bunch of different opinions on this out there. Some say your gear absolutely matters, while others feel that the gear you use doesn’t matter at all because at the end of the day it comes down to the photographer’s ability. Watch as photographer Erik Wahlstrom explores the answer, and asks for a bit of input from other photographers out there to see what they have to say.

If you’d like to see more from Erik, he has been building up a fantastic collection of videos on YouTube. A great source of information if you are interested in film photography. You can also stay in touch with Erik via his Instagram page, Twitter account or on Facebook.
