What’s In the Bag of a Commercial Photographer?

with Angela Marklew

If you’ve ever been curious about what’s in the bag of a beauty photographer, look no further. Below are the contents of my camera case. At this point, my camera gear moves around in a Manfrotto rolling suitcase. Make sure that your camera case complies with airline carry-on guidelines—I always advise against checking your camera gear. As we go on, I’ll break down the purpose of everything and why I always have this stuff. Pictured left are what I call the “essentials,” or my core gear. Even if I didn’t have anything else, I could confidently shoot anything from a test to a commercial job with just these things.
