Here’s what I can take along on my Rock-n-Roller cart with “offroad” tires for location shoots:
24″ iMac with 8GB RAM.
17″ MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM.
Wacom Intuos 4 Drawing Tablet.
FW800 AC-Powered Scratch drive
Various small, bus-powered backup drives.
Powered 7-port USB Hub.
Various high-speed CF and SD card readers.
Various parts and pieces with which to solve small problems.
Apple Airport Express to create local or extend existing wireless networks.
iPad with and the ability to wirelessly show and rate images as they are shot (when shooting tethered into CaptureOne on my Mac) This is handy in tight spaces or to have a larger almost-live preview.
I also have iPad/iPhone camera-control software with Live View which you can use to adjust, focus and trigger Canon and Nikon cameras. This latter is touchy and a small amount of time to test on location should be scheduled before counting on it.
APC Battery Backup/Surge Suppressor that will run the rig for about 10 minutes.
Photoshop, Capture One Pro, Lightroom, Photo Mechanic, CS Suite 5, Card Rescue
Canon 5dMkII with 24-70mm f2.8L
Electronic Intervalometer/Cable release
Manfrotto Tripod w/ball head
580EX flash gun & modifiers
Various CF cards
Grip bag full of tape, clamps, cords, small tools and canned air.
Generally speaking, I import files, backup, rename and add metadata all in one fell swoop. I organize everything according to the needs of the photographer/dictates of the shoot.
I use the file naming scheme YYYYMMDD_clientname_shootname_### unless someone requests something else.
I can generate, upload and host photographer-branded Web galleries at the end of every day (likely to incur some overtime charges)
I do pre-shoot planning, on-set compositing and all kinds of post work. Click for more information.
I am local to Boulder/Denver, but I have no fear of flying and have an up-to-date passport.
