One Small Bag of Skateboard Photography Equipment for Any Situation

Suppose you want to shoot on location but you don’t have access to a car or a crew to move equipment. Impossible? With the right setup, it doesn’t have to be.

Photographers work and travel in all sorts of situations. The key to success is assembling an appropriate set of equipment that works for a given scenario, including schlepping on public transit. Matt Price, photographer for The Skateboard Mag, gives us an inside look at his mobile, compact gear kit that works for getting to and shooting at just about any locale:

Price is able to fit everything he needs for magazine-worthy skateboard photos into one over-the-shoulder camera bag. Inside the bag, you’ll find the following gear:

Resourceful use of his simplified kit eliminates the need for Price to carry light stands. He often sets flashes on the ground or found objects, like rocks or hydrants, to serve as makeshift light stands. Another trick that gives his photos a different look is the use of shoelaces to tie flashes onto fences. Because the placement of flashes without stands isn’t always precise, he compensates by zooming his flashes out until the light hits the subject.

The downside of storing all of your gear in a small bag is the difficulty in finding and removing gear from the kit when you need it. By using a compartmentalized camera bag, Price stays organized and knows exactly where to find each piece of camera gear.

Price’s photographs demonstrate his mastery of working with minimal equipment:


“You need shoelaces always. For everything.”
