Do a search on Flickr for “What’s in your bag?” and you’ll stumble upon thousands of photos of meticulously arranged junk. Looks like there’s a movement to photograph emptied out bags to show what people drag around with them all day.

After every shoot, I empty out my Lowepro Roller 1, gather all the batteries for recharging, check lenses and cameras for damage, and make sure I didn’t lose anything. I was really bored today, so I decided to take one of those fancy gear photos. Turns out, my stuff makes a perfect square.

Here’s what’s in my main bag:

  • Nikon D700 with battery grip
  • Nikon D90 (back-up)
  • Nikon F-100 (I still shoot film)
  • SB-800 strobe
  • SB-900 strobe
  • SD9 battery pack
  • Nikkor 70–200mm f/2.8 VRII
  • Nikkor 24–70mm f/2.8
  • Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
  • Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro
  • Lomo LC+A
  • Canon HF-200 camcorder
  • Sekonic light meter
  • flash to camera cord
  • random defusers, memory cards, wires, and light hoods

Everything fits snug as a rug in my roller suitcase (one of the best purchases I ever made). This is my basic event and wedding rig that comes with me whenever I have a long shoot. If I ever get around to it, I’ll post my smaller bags for concerts and short events, and maybe my lighting gear if I’m feeling particularly frisky.
