Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.


Transcript:
Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

We use a wide variety of cases to store our equipment safely, so they travel from point A to point B.  Whether as we said earlier it’s a load and go day trip or we’re going overseas. 

We really like the Versa- Flex cases; from the small cases to the medium cases, large and then the extra long cases that we put our stands and our soft boxes in.  We just think the Versa- Flex cases do the job the best.  There are other cases that we have; we do have some Tamracs.  They are typically the older bags that we have had for some time, kind of legacy bags. 

We have some newer Kata bags.  And a really great case that we think really highly of is the ThinkTank line of cases; they really do the best job for carryon, bar none. They are designed by photographers, for photographers, and nothing was spared in making them the best.  So that’s a little bit about the cases that we use, hopefully you got a little bit of insight there into how we use them and why we use them. 

We prefer the Versa- Flex and the ThinkTank over some of the harder cases, like the Pelicans that we do have and have had more as a legacy case more than anything else.  The Pelicans weigh a lot more than the Versa- Flex cases and tend to eat up some of that weight allowance that we have when we’re traveling.  We do use them when we’re in the water and other really heavy-duty industrial situations, but those situations are few and far between relative to the things we do everyday.


Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
