I was looking at another wedding photographer's web site and in the FAQ section was a short paragraph on "what kind camera do you use". the photographer explained his/her gear. in all my years of wedding shoots, I've never had that question asked.

I've never asked my dentist what kind of drill he uses or a chef, what brand pf knife he used. I was wondering how many others have been asked about their equipment?

I see no problem with this kind of information being listed by the wedding photographer or someone asking what you shoot.

I am a motorsports photographer with a portfolio. A media outlet I have shot for have asked what I shoot with. I don't think its a big deal. It is just one piece of information that will help a person decide if they want to hire a photographer.

I would not hire a wedding photographer I barely new that was using old crappy equipment. What if it breaks during the wedding? What if they only used one camera?

If you go back to my original question, I only asked HOW many photographers get that type of question--simple question.

Thank you for your response and I apologize for my poor response to your simple question.

My guess is 250 other photographers on DPR were asked that type of question.
