23 Jan 2017 Goal :: Simplify My Gear

Source: Fujifilm Insider

2016 was one of my busiest years of my career and at least 80% of my work was done on location. I flew just shy of 80,000 miles last year and drove just over 17,000 miles for work all while packing cameras and lights and all the rest of it.

Traveling is stressful as it is but last year my life was far too stressful because my gear has splintered into multiple systems, adapters, triggers, and the like. I have got to get this shit under control and that means simplifying. If it hasn’t been used in the last year then it’s gone. If I cursed at it last year then it’s gone. If I used it once then it’s probably gone. If I kept using one thing wishing I had a different option for it then it’s gone.

I’d love to get to a point in my life where I have one bag of cameras and one bag of lights and that’s it. My ultimate utopian fantasy is two X100’s and four clamp lights with dimmers on them. Unfortunately that is not an option for the work I do.
