Even though I’m not on photo assignment for this trip, I’m still a photographer and want to have a good kit with me. One of my favorite bags for these situations is the Lowepro Classified Sling 180 AW. I like that it holds my DSLR (Canon 60D on this trip) with 70-200 f/4, 16-35 f/2.8, […]
Another of my favorite components in the new S&F System is the Quick Flex Pouch for your flash. It’s SlipLock compatible, so you can use it with a variety of Lowepro bags and belts.

If you’ve never seen Uwe before, he teamed up with Greg Lowe years ago to help make Lowepro what it is today. I’ll let him take it […]
Here’s the challenge. Can I go on assignment for 5 days to New York City to cover PhotoPlus Expo with just the Pro Roller Attache x50? We’re going to find out together. I’m recording the journey scene by scene from San Francisco to New York, including while I’m working around PhotoPlus Expo and in the […]
