I’m the first photographer to admit that I like to keep my kit bag light. I like to be as minimal as possible. However, as a fashion photographer, there is always going to be a certain amount of essential gear that we need. So rather than leave you guessing, I’ve created a whole list of exactly what I use every. single. day.

No more guessing.
