What gear uses Brandon Woelfel ?

Brandon Woelfel has become in a very short time a phenomenon on Instagram. The look he gives to his shots, is immediately recognizable. He plays a lot on pink and blue tones, a lot of accessories as well as on strong depth of field: the bokeh.

At the time I write these lines, his Instagram account has more than 2 million subscribers and his Youtube channel more than 230,000.

This article will introduce you to the material he uses, information which is much less often found than the articles dedicated to the retouching techniques he uses.

His gear

Brandon still left some information in the video that follows. To summarize, and against all odds, he does not use the latest high-end box:

EDIT: There are big differences between what Brandon presented on Youtube (see the video below) and what he displays on his website. It seems to use in addition now (which is consistent) a Nikon D850 (See on Amazon) and a Nikon D810 (Amazon). To confirm


  • Nikon D750 (Amazon) (after starting with a Nikon D5200)
  • Lenses:

His book

If you are also under the spell of his clichés, I invite you to watch or order his Luminescence photo book

His technique

Some creative youtubers have dedicated some videos on the technique of shooting but also and especially retouching. Here is a selection of those that I found interesting. As always, the idea is to inspire and not copy the technique
