Camera Equipment and accessories I use when undertaking a corporate headshot shoot.
When I undertake a headshot shoot the camera equipment and accessories I take are all portable. For this reason, it’s important for my clients to not be away from the workplace for too long. As a result, this saves them time and money by taking the studio to them.
Consequently, being away from the Office brings challenges with it. Therefore if you forget a piece of kit this could cancel the shoot. For this reason, I like to work from a list that I can alter depending on the shoot.
What do I take?
The important bits are:_
Normally for these items, I double up so that if one item fails I have a backup, yes, it happens.
A collapsible backdrop 2.4M x 2M with a choice of green or white background.
Three light stands, two for the lights and one for the backdrop.
Two-pocket wizards for remote control of the flash guns.
One pocket wizard controller to set the flash exposure remotely
Batteries for flash, pocket wizards and camera.
Battery charger for the camera, just in case.
Tripod to mount the camera on
Stand to mount the laptop on.
Laptop and leads.
Camranger to operate the camera remotely.
Lens cleaning cloth. These can be lifesavers when dust shows up.
Cables for cameras and lights.
Sandbag weights for light stands and backdrop
Reflectors. To help boost natural light.
Clamps of various sizes for holding down anything from fabric to backgrounds.
Bags and cases for everything.
Food and water. Snacks and hydration are keys to success on set.
In this case, the beauty of a list is that I take everything I require.
Accordingly, you have now had an insight into the equipment I take on a shoot. Therefore to book your session contact Martin to find out how he can improve your first impression.
