There are a few things that I consider to be essential during a photoshoot. Some items are obvious, such as the camera itself or a memory card but other items may be forgotten until you really need them. In which case you will probably kick yourself for leaving it on the kitchen table. While having the best photography equipment does not make the photographer, there are certain items that can make your life easier. Below you will find a long list of items that help me when I take, cull and edit photos.
The type of bag largely depends on what kind of work you do or how much you travel. There are tons of bags out there to choose from and figuring out which one is best for you can be a challenge. Think about how much you want to carry around with you while thinking about your shoulders, neck and back!
Tenba Large Messenger – There is enough room for 3 lenses, your camera body and a flash unit. I also keep other miscellaneous items such as: Memory cards, grey cards, clamps, pens, my iPad, photo releases, hard drives, cables, extra batteries and a note pad! If you’re looking for a more stylish option you could try Kelly Moore Bags or Epiphanie Bags. If you want to be easy on your body, try a bag with wheels!
