Tools of the trade: Gear Container

Let’s face it, photographers are obsessed with equipment. Second only to equipment, photographers are obsessed with equipment bags and containers. We rush to see and investigate other photographer’s stuff the way dogs rush to sniff each other.

It doesn’t really stop there. I’d wager that the first place that any photographer goes to when visiting Home Depot is the aisle with the tool chests and gear totes. It’s not a scientific assessment, but I’d bet money on it.

The last time I was in Paris I was aimlessly walking along Rue Augereau when I was interrupted by an odd desire to own a production truck. Luckily for my wallet this gem wasn’t for sale.
