So I get this question a lot, "What do you bring to a photoshoot?" While there is no real catch all answer for that since every shoot is different and I'll need different gear depending on what I'm shooting, I have narrowed my gear down to what I bring on EVERY shoot. I have two Pelican cases built for traveling and when I need extra or specialized gear I just add it, but these two cases get me through just about any situation.
The video posted above shows the two cases and all the important toys they contain but I've also included a list below.

Similar to the Alienbees Vagabond, this is my battery source for my strobes when I'm on location and don't have outlets to use.

Size is probably OK but what about the weight as many are limited to only 5KG......my case and gear is nearly 12KG

Next I want to see a tutorial on how to properly hashtag a post on Instagram like a pro.
