What's In Your Photography Bag?

I thought it would be fun to share what is in my Photography Bag. A lot of people ask me what I shoot with and what lenses I prefer, so here you go. This is my travel Lowepro backpack, I strictly use this on plane flights as I can never separate from my camera equipment and this backpack fits in the overhead compartments.Getting ready to fly and shoot 2 weddings and 12 photo shoots in 5 days, which has become a usual occurrence for me. So here is how I pack my bag to travel. I will be writing a follow up blog soon on how to travel with your equipment and keep your images safe! Since I have become more of a destination photographer, I have shot in different countries and regularly shoot out of state. Traveling with your equipment and already shot images can be very tricky and you need to be prepared for the worst case scenarios! While shooting I like to use my Kelley Moore bag if I have an assistant, and I prefer my Thinktank which is handy for all my lenses when I shoot alone and have no assistant.

What I shoot With:

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 5D's as Backup
Zoom Lens 70-200 2.8 ~ Most Preferred 
Zoom Lens 70-200 4.0 ~Backup, Used for Travel
Overall Lens 24-105 4.0 ~Larger Group Shots
Macro 100 mm 2.8 ~For rings and close ups
Wide Angle 14mm Fisheye ~Room and Venue shots
2- 580EX II Flashes
Gary Fong Whales Tale~ Have shot with it for years and cant shoot without it.

Not Pictured: Canon 50mm, Think Tank easy shoot waist bag, Kelly Moore Bag, Over 100GB of Chip Space, plenty of camera batteries and chargers
