Bags & Traveling

Having gear is pointless if you can't bring it with you. There are lots of bags out there, but these are the ones that we own, use, and recommend. Depending on the trip and where we are headed, we work with different bags based on a mix of features, durability, usability, and discreteness. 


Manfrotto Advanced Travel Backpack

This bag was created for the traveling video or photo pro. You can store your laptop and camera with lens attached, making run and gun easy. The Manfrotto Travel Tripod fits conveniently in a side pocket and I've worn this bag all day comfortably.

Tamrac 5788 Evolution 8 Backpack

This bag is similar to Hermione's bag in the Deathly Hallows, this holds everything. Every time I pack this bag my mind is blown. The main compartment dividers can be arranged to your liking and you will be hard pressed to fill the 5788.

Shootsac Lens Bag

This bag is used when we are shooting on the go and need to switch lenses quickly. With no zippers, you can access the six compartments of the Shootsac quickly and without making any noise. It doesn't look like a camera bag either.

Tenba 48" Rolling Tripod/Grip Case

We sometimes need to travel with a lot of stands. Durable with one cavernous compartment, this bag allows you to put all your gear into one place. Although the Tenba can get heavy when fully packed, the wheels and sturdy handles keep it nimble.

Ona Brixton Leather Shoulder Bag

This is my conference/town bag. It looks great and fits my one-day shooting gear plus my laptop for working on the go in my favorite coffee shop. The velcro dividers are customizable too.
