There was a time several years ago before I had gone on my 1 year hiatus from shooting, where I was carrying tons of gear to each one of my shoots. I had a large shoulder bag with 2 full sized dSLRs and grips, 70-200 f2.8 Lens, and a few others that were equally as heavy. My shoulders and back weren’t happy with my gear choices, but this taught me to really be more of a minimalist photographer.
When I switched over to using a Mirrorless System, I was well on my way to being a minimalist photographer, but combined with the size and weight of the new system, along with my choices to keep size / weight / cost down of gear, I have really found a great combination for shooting my Professional Hybrid Photography in Los Angeles. I wanted to share just what all I take when going on any of my shoots. These are the MUST HAVE items, but would you be surprised when I tell you that they only take up 1/8th of the size of my vehicles trunk space?
When shooting for my professional work, going on distance photo walks, or just scooting around town or the Zoo with the kiddos, I have found a very versatile system when it comes to the way I shoot my Hybrid Photography.
