What's in Your Bag?: Traveling Light on Assignment with Model Shoot

This is a question often asked of photographers, with a range of answers. There are some photographers who work with an austere kit, carrying a camera, a few lenses, and the bare essentials, while others carry everything—including the kitchen sink.

Watch as headshot and editorial photographer Bob Harrington takes inventory of the contents of his bag for a day's work. There are no secrets here, or a bag of tricks. Harrington uses simple gear that fits into two travel bags. Whether Harrington is making corporate, editorial, personal images or running a workshop, his kit is simple and packed well into these two cases. He also describes how he modifies the kit to accomodate short assignments and travel.

Harrington shares with you not only what’s in the bag but also part numbers and certain essentials you should never be without so you, too, can build a kit that is efficient and cost effective for your work.

Like all of Harrington’s presentations and workshops, this event is broken into two parts:

• Part 1: Slideshow, Lecture, Q+A

• Part 2: Live shooting demonstration with a model. Harrington shoots as if he had been given an assignment, and shows you how to work at a given location with minimal gear.

Let professional photographer, author and photography educator Bob Harrington share his tips and techniques on how to acquire the shot, and help you build your own efficient kit.
