Los Angeles-based photographer and photo assistant Shawn Corrigan has spent the past 10 years traveling the world assisting and shooting. Over time, he has developed an “everything but the kitchen sink, plus the kitchen sink” kit that he brings to each set. In addition to the absolutely essential leatherman and light meter that every assistant should carry around, here’s a checklist of others things you should consider packing.
Corrigan was recently profiled by Photoshelter for a free Photo Assistant’s Handbook they released. It’s a good resource for some free photo assisting tips and advice.
