I’m in the process of gearing up for full-time PFRE, and was wondering what other real estate photographers use in terms of bags and cases. Just ordered a Pelican rolling case to house two camera bodies, four Yongnuo flashes and controller, along with a few lenses and other accessories.
Sounds like you are on the right track. I would say the Pelican 1510 is very popular with real estate photographers because it has rollers, is a hard case and it fits in overhead compartments in airplanes if you ever need to travel. Scott Hargis recommends this case in his book Lighting Interiors along with the close second is the Pelican 1560 which is slightly bigger.
Some RE photographers additionally use a small over the shoulder bag like a shootsac which I talked about on the blog back in January.
Anyone else have advice for Jarrett?
