Tony Gale: What’s in My Bag When Anything Goes

Sony Artisan Tony Gale is a photographer on the go. In an era of doing more with less, Tony gets tasked with shooting portraits on location with limited time to do the shot and often with limited advance knowledge about the environment. Still, as with any gig, failure simply isn’t an option. We met up with Tony in June at a shoot in San Diego. After a travel day that resembled something out of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Tony's luggage was lost, but being the pro that he is, he had all of the photo gear he thought he might need in a densely-packed carryon. It was an impressive collection in a relatively small bag so we asked him to unpack and show what’s in his bag for people and portrait photographer when there are a lot of unknowns.
