Productivity Hacks: Roller Cart


As photographers it is easy for us to get caught up in buying new gear. A lot of times it is the less sexy gear that makes the big difference. It is easy to drool over the new camera, lens, or flash, while it is other little things which make the big difference. My red roller cart is a perfect example of this.

Before buying this red roller cart, I would carry around several large bags. A big camera bag with all of my lenses and a wide variety of accessories. Plus a big lighting bag with light stands, Alienbee, and modifiers. This was a pain. Especially for shoots in new locations I was less familiar with. It got to the point in many new locations I simply shot with natural light, instead of lugging around my massive kit. In 2018 I switched up how I carried my gear and got several smaller bags. I started only bringing the gear I needed to shoots. This was a big step forward, but still not as efficient as it could be. I ended up buying this red roller cart at Shopko in September 2018. Now I will load the cart with the gear I’ll be using on location, instead of lugging around several large bags. This makes doing shoots with off camera flash much easier. I have used this cart on almost every outdoor portrait session I have done since buying it.
