The Bag(less) Lady.

A few years ago when I left the film industry, I remember thinking “finally I won’t feel like a bag lady carrying a ton of stuff with me everywhere I go.”  Clearly, at that point, I didn’t know that I would end up being an Interior Photographer.  For most of my shoots I show up bright and early in the morning with an assistant, a handtruck, & about 7 bags of assorted gear.  Last year I started shooting for BizBash, an event industry trade publication.  I am sent out to document the decor, the space, & the unique design elements of the event.  What I love about shooting these jobs is that I have about 45 minutes to capture the essence of the transformed event space- and it’s just me, my camera, and one little flash.  I don’t even bring a purse with me!

    I’ve got 3 sets of lights…..One Speedotron set of 2400ws powerpack and 4 strobes….one set of 5 speedlites and 3 Morris wireless slaves….and one set of 4 Lowel hot lights. I’d love to just get it down to the speedlites and Morris slaves…..maybe next year.
