Actually I am on tour with Shantel in Canada and I got a question from Laure, which gear I am using on tour and how I transport it on a plane. Therefore, I did a short video to show you all the photography gear that I have with me.
Going on tour with a band is the most exciting thing that you can do as a concert photographer. I joined Shantel on his Canada tour 2014 and so far it was a blast. We played Montreal Jazz Festival in front of 30 000 people and it always gives me an adrenaline rush when taking photos on stage. Being on tour needs also planing on what equipment you are taking with you.
In the following short video I open my camera bag for you to give you a quick overview about the photography gear I I am using on tour.
Have a look at the video here:
NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 24-70MM F2.8G ED
NIKON AF-D NIKKOR 80-200MM F2.8 ED
