Yesterday I was asked to cover a job for a photographer colleague who couldn't make it. The brief was very brief. All I got was that it was for a guy who runs a bakery who needed a couple of shots of himself interacting with his staff for an editorial piece that was going into a local magazine.
Deciding what gear to pack when you have such little information is always daunting, so I thought I would go through my essential kit that I take for most eventualities on shoots like this. Please excuse the coughing. I have been unwell for 3 weeks now and just when I think I am getting better it comes back.
