When you have to much camera gear to carry...

Like most of us, we usually have more gear to carry than we can safely carry. Oh, I know, some of you guys are real macho and will carry twice your own weight in camera gear... but some of us are a little realistic about our own limitations of how much we can carry. And then you have the crime factor. When you are carring lots of gear, you could become a target of a snatch and run theif at any time. So you have to consider that as well.

I know not everyone is as lucky as I am, but I am fortunate to have the perfect solution to both the carrying part and the protection part. Here is a good example... no LowePro, or Tamrac or Domke bag for me. Nope. I go a different route. This is a little dated, as this was taken a few years ago when I was still shooting film. But it gets the idea across.





If they should grab something off the pack, he can run them down and latch onto a leg with his teeth until I can get there and hit them with the tripod to subdue them until the cops arrive.

That's so funny . . . .

I wonder if you could rig him with a harness and a buggy and carry a portable generator set to run the flash units. . . !!?

What a handsome boy! And helpful too! Wonder if I could train one of my rotties to do that for me? The greyhound and the poodle wouldn't lower themselves to do manual labour, though they don't mind posing.

Thanks everyone. Yes, they come in different models. As for having him pull a cart with a generator... it's funny you should mention that. For the really big loads, here is the cart they pull... including seat for the tired photographer.



Although one can pull this cart, we like to hook up several of them. They love it as well. We've used them to hual everything from kids to an adult to several hundred pounds of dog food from the vendor to the van. And this is only one of several carts we have for them. The 4 wheel mushing cart is a blast with 5 of them hooked up in mushing harnesses and they take off across the fields.

Thanks for looking and the comments.

Mike
