Always carry spares

When you are shooting for pay, always make sure that you carry:

  • A spare camera battery.
  • Spare batteries for your flash.
  • Some Alkaline AAs.
  • Spare memory cards.
  • A spare flash.
  • Spares for essential cables (e.g. to connect your flash to your camera or pocketwizards).
  • Even, if at all possible, a spare camera.

That way you can offer your customer peace of mind, and you can rest assured that the price you charge is worth it – “Uncle Bob”, after all, does not carry the spares above.

I have been saved more than a few times by the spares above – yes, all of them.
