I mean business!

Hiding my camera in a pretty bag.

My Lowepro Runner 450AW is my go to place. It keeps everything nice and safe and I know it has everything in there including the kitchen sink.

My JoJo Totes Abby Black is my event bag or day trip out with Jack. It’s for when I know my phone won’t cut it but I don’t want or need to take everything out with me. It’s great for friends parties or day trips out. 

Unfortunately, this one has been discontinued, however there are some lovely other ones like this Betsy one. 

So what's in my bag?

What’s in a photographer’s bag seems to be the number one question asked! So here it goes.

Canon Camera

Canon DSLR

I actually have three now, and I still use all three of them. I know, but you don't always want to carry the biggest, heaviest, most expensive one around. The important thing is how you use your camera. But if you're struggling to work out with one you want start with the an entry level one Canon 200D. A lovely starter camera for someone starting out.

17-55mm

Canon 17-55mm

My 24-70mm on crop sensor.

24-70mm

Canon 24-70mm

I love this lens

Tamron 70-300mm Lens

Tamron 70-300mm

I use my Tamron for macro work.

Canon 70-200mm L Lens

Canon 70-200mm L

A beautiful lens and a life saver for outside.

Canon 50mm Lens

Canon 50mm

My most affordable lens out there. Starting from £100 new.

Extension tube

A nice piece of kit for doing macro work.

Manfrotto Tripod

Manfrotto Befree Travel Tripod - Black

An absolute must for keeping the camera steady.

Yongnuo Speedlite

Yougnuo Speedlite YN560 + TX

A surprisingly lovely flash, that I wouldn't be without.

Spare batteries

You should always keep spare batteries, you never now when you'll need one.

SD Memory Card

SD Extreme Pro Memory card

It's always worth spending that little bit more on good memory cards. I love my SD Extreme Pro cards.

Wacom

Wacom Tablet

If I could only have one accessory, I'd buy this. It's life changing from an editing point of view.

MacBook Pro

MacBook Pro

What else are you going to use or storing, editing and generally having fun.

Other items to consider

Most Used Item in my bag?

Is my f2.8 24-70mm Lens. I love this for using indoors with toddlers and family portraits. It’s great for when there’s limited space. 

Least used item in my bag?

My flash. It’s a very reasonable flash and I’ve started using it in a varitey of ways, but I always prefer to use natural lighting where possible. I’m sorry I just do.  

Why the photographer is more important than the camera.

  1. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

  3. Right here is the right website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that’s
    been written about for ages. Wonderful stuff, just great!

  4. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I’ve truly loved
    surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing
    to your rss feed and I’m hoping you write again soon!

    g
  5. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your website. It appears as if some of the text in your content
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Kudos

  6. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp so much approximately
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you simply
    could do with a few p.c. to drive the message house a bit,
    but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read.
    I will definitely be back.

  7. My partner and I stumbled over here coming from a different page and thought
    I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i
    am following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page for a second time.

  8. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this brilliant
    blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and
    adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  9. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
