In My Bag – by Dave Londres

Dave LondresDave Londres lives to solve problems. The best ones pop up during editorial, commercial and sports photography assignments. He started out homeschooled and ended up graduating from RIT. He hates glitter and really enjoys a good roll of tape. When he isn’t making photographs, he can be found tweaking phone software, managing fantasy teams, or throwing balls for his hound.

Since every job is a little different, my bag constantly changes contents. This is the normal starting point for me and what happens to be in there today. In combination with a stand, speedlite and/or AlienBee cases, I can show up to an assignment with everything I might need.
