A Short Explainer Video

Creating something new isn't easy and not everyone understands it at first. We created a very short explainer video describing why Gear Offer is different and why you'd want to use it. Take a look if you want to know what we're about.

Canon and Nikon Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras Coming Soon?

After years of sleeping at the wheel, both Canon and Nikon are expected to release full frame mirrorless cameras sometime this year. What does it all mean?

Selling a Complete Camera Kit?

When selling your gear, it's tempting to just bundle your whole camera kit into a single listing. This makes sense on the surface, but in reality, it doesn't work out very well.

Fearless Street Photography

It took me a few years to figure this out. Wait, that's not quite right. It took me a few years to put a name to this. I have been subconsciously aware of it since I started shooting the streets, I just didn't know what to call it. Now I do. Emotional Intelligence. It's the single most important thing in street photography and if you master this, you can shoot the streets without fear (a healthy level of awareness, but not fear). So, what is it?

Gear Offer is Officially Launched

It's been a long time coming but the Gear Offer platform is finally here. I created Gear Offer because I'm frequently buying and selling cameras and lenses. I like to try new equipment and typically I sell something to fund another purchase. When selling gear, I visit the typical web sites: eBay, Craig's List and some online classifieds, but none of these "marketplaces" ever really felt right. eBay has the largest reach, but costs 10% per sale with some listing fees as well. That really cuts into the amount you can make when selling. Craig's List is great for some things, but when selling high-value gear, it's risky meeting up with strangers who know you have $2000 camera on you. And, as a buyer, meeting up is risky because the stranger you anonymously emailed knows you probably have $2000 in cash on your person to buy that camera.
