What's in My Photography Bag ?

January 03, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I often get asked about kit and what's in my photography bag.... my husband would joke that it's "bags" not bag.... but I do have a large Tamrac camera bag that I can squeeze the essentials into to take to a wedding or portrait shoot for example.

The bag includes two cameras - (sometimes three) -  all Canon -  Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 1DS MarkII on top of that are a variety of Professional Canon lenses, a 70-20mm lens, a 24-105mm a 17-40mm wide angle and I also carry a 90mm Tamron  lens. You will also find a couple of Canon Flash guns, plus a selection of polariser filters, UV filters for every lens and ND filters too, shutter release cable, several lens cloths, memory cards, spare batteries, pens and notebook. Tripod is too big to fit in the bag - but for your knowledge I own a Giotto tripod - and I love it :-)

I have a rule that I stick to very strictly with my camera kit - as this is my full time Profession and not a hobby, my kit has to earn it's keep and pay its' way as it were and so I use everything I own.

I also have an Ikelite Underwater Housing for the Canon 5D Mark II and port for when I go diving and snorkeling. I hear you ask how it earns its' keep ?

I sell a lot of my travel images through large libraries such as Getty, Alamy and Shutterstock to name a few, the underwater photos go into these libraries and so the Canon and its' underwater housing also earn their keep this way.

My Camera kit has traveled the world with me, from Mt Everest in Both Tibet and Nepal to Antarctica down south across South America and out to The Galapagos and up north as far as Svalbard. Taking photographs is my absolute passion, whether they are travel images, equestrian and pet portraits, wedding photography or product photography, I enjoy them all.

If you have had a camera for Christmas or would just like to learn more about photography and how to get more from your camera I offer half day and full day photography tuition, so please give me a shout, drop me an email, or call if you would like to learn more and embrace your passion in photography too.
