For your camera bag - Memory Card Case.

When you are in the business of capturing special moments or shooting for high end commercial clients, you will want to safeguard your memory cards. I just love the Vanguard memory card case. Durable and easy to use. The memory card case keeps your memory cards organized. You can number your memory cards so that you can work systematically through them when shooting. Never getting confused about which card is full and which ready for shooting.

These handy holders are available from Cameraworld. For the price it is a bargain, seeing as it stores memory cards with your valuable images on it. Your images are your income.

The following steps are my basic memory “make & save” cycle. Repeat steps 2 to 7 before and after every shoot.

Step 1 - Buy a trusted brand of Memory Cards at your specialist photographic equipment dealer.
Step 2 - Test your memory cards and format them before using them at a big event.
Step 3 - Number your memory cards.
Step 4 - Store memory cards in the card holder.
Step 5 - Shoot you heart out and fill memory cards with beautiful images.
Step 6 - Do a back up of all your memory cards as soon as possible after the shoot.
Step 7 - Catalog all your images. I prefer Microsoft Expression Media 2.

Happy Shooting. x

Holds 6 CF Cards.

Holds 12 SD Cards.

For your camera bag - Fun stuff

Here are a few affordable products & gadgets for your camera bag if you shoot weddings that I find essential. These items come in handy when you least expect it.

Also, remember to have an identification card in your camera bag.

1. Business Cards - {by Pink Pigeon} - You might get an enquiry at a wedding.

2. Hand Cleanser - Just after the bridal couple have enjoyed their first piece of wedding cake, you will have something for sticky hands.

3. Wet Wipes - Always handy.

4. Cable ties - Something to keep your cables organized.

My favourite!

5. Labels by Nikon to mark your equipment. Small sticker that can make a big difference.

6. Pocket Tissues - You are the only one following the bride & groom the whole day, be there for them in case of a teary moment.

7. Pocket Towel - Once at a beach engagement shoot I had the couple walking through shallow waves, they were very happy to dry their feet afterwards. Footnote {pun intended} - Baby powder is a great sand remover.

8. Plastic bags - For keeping things dry or separated.

9. Fresh & Sweet - Tic Tacs are my favourite, especially the orange flavour. I like them because you can share them with the couple, no chewing gum to be disposed of and they taste great. Not as overpowering as mints.

10. Desert Rose Hanger - A gorgeous wedding dress should hang on something special.

For your camera bag.

I love gadgets and photographic accessories that make life easier. Especially if it is well designed,affordable and comes in green. ;)

Thys Visser, who I met at a Kiki meetup, { Kobus Tollig on lighting techniques & other clever photography tips } , showed me this simple product. Storacell, battery management system. It holds your AA batteries together and it is available in different sizes, so it will fit into any camera bag. Excellent quality

I am a big fan of Hähnel Synergy rechargeable batteries, they are perfect for wedding photography, they last forever and they are good for the environment because of their battery life. No need to replace batteries that often.
Small tip, it may be very obvious, mark your batteries as soon as you take them out of their packaging. It is important not to mix your batteries.

Willem Foster ordered these army green 12-packs for me. Thanks, Willem.
