From creativity stand point equipment plays much lesser role if any. However a sport shooter needs his high frame rate body. Landscaper needs his hi rez equipment. Wedding shooter needs to knows his software and the market. Hence in basic terms equipment (camera, lens, software, etc) are secondary ONLY to basics of picture taking such as composition, exposure or what have you. I have seen truly breath-taking photos taken with very simple gears. On the contrary, I see day after day poor photos taken with hi end gears on this forum.

Equipment is a tool and consequently photographer's skill & creativity becomes a major player in final output. Given an advanced photo equipment to a novice can be disastrous.

All in all it really depends. In advance world of photography the photographer's skill/talent and the equipment's capabilities are mutually exclusive. That is meaning that both have to be satisfied in order to achieve the desired results.
