I have always been interested in seeing what photographers carry in their bag while on different assignments, thus I have decided to start doing my own weekly posts documenting what gear I take with me on specific assignments. The posts will show the gear I used, a list of the equipment, and some sample images that I took on that particular day/job.
This is the equipment I take with me while covering clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops in the West Bank.
1. Ballistics helmet
2. Newswear vest with velcro PRESS sign
3. Gas Mask
4. Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 ED
5. Nikon D700
6. Fujifilm XT-1
7. Nikon D4S
8. Loose change (for cab fare and a snack)
9. Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 G
10. Baby Doll head (found on the street, it has become a joke among me and my colleagues to put the dolls head in each others equipment bags to find while working)
11. Nikon 24mm f2.8 D
12. Fujinon 18mm f2
13. Audio recorder
16. Tobacco/rolling papers/filters
This is my typical loadout when covering high intensity situations abroad. The helmet, 24mm lens, and newswear vest are my girlfriend's equipment, however when she is not using them or covering clashes I use them. My own personal head protection is actually a construction helmet.
Here are some images from covering clashes that I have made using this equipment.
Hope this post is informative and enjoyable, stay tuned for another gear post next week.
