19 Oct What's in Her Bag: Jo Guihot, of JG Images
Tell us a little about what’s inside.
My bag contains an assortment of items. Currently I am shooting with a Nikon D750, but also own a D800. I have a memory card carrier, because I always want to have enough space. I take the lenses I think I’ll use for each shoot, and these vary from a 35mm right through to a 70-200mm. (The only zoom lens I own — I love my primes a lot.) I always have an iPhone floating around, whether it is my business phone or my personal – or both! My bag is a gorgeous teal bag from 3 Annies, which is an Australian camera bag company. I also have a Lowepro sling bag that is great if I’m traveling light or traveling overseas. I’m notorious for taking my bag on a shoot and dumping it on the ground and walking away! I generally try and take as little as possible with me to a session. I also have some chewing gum, just in case!
Which lens is your go-to?
I have a real love affair with my 85mm 1.4. I shoot Nikon, so most of my lenses are Nikkor lenses – however, I recently added a Sigma lens from the Art range, and it is amazing. If I’m shooting outdoors, it’s the 85mm, currently. If I’m shooting indoors, without a doubt it is the 35mm 1.4 from Sigma.
Most used item in your bag?
I use my Emily Ley planner a lot! I love it. I love pen and paper. Even though I have so many gadgets, I prefer to write things down, and I love the satisfaction of crossing them off! It actually wasn’t in my bag the day I did this – which is rare!
Least used item in your bag?
I had a 28mm lens in my bag that was never touched – it was so neglected. It was the least used item in my bag, so much so that I took it out. I also have a Shutter Hugger, who is really cute – but doesn’t come out often. I think my face is silly enough! So my least used items aren’t actually in my bag anymore.
I also have a SB-900 Speedlight, which I don’t use often – but it has come in handy a few times.
Thank you, Jo, for showing us what’s in your bag! We especially love your beautiful business cards.
