In your bag 731, Andrea Di Lorenzo
A professional food photographer, a bag and a cat…Wow. Andrea shares his  professional work bag with us. Check it out.

My name is Andrea Di Lorenzo, I’m a food photographer based in Rome, Italy.

I generally work on location, high-end restaurants, vineyards, resorts and luxury hotels, and, I must admit, I’m the kind of photographer who is used to back up a lot of things in his bag! :D


In this days I work with a Canon 5D MarkIII (but I always travel with a backup camera, 5D MarkII, and a Micro 4/3 Fuji X10) and a couple of lenses: the Canon 24-105 f4 and the Canon 100 Macro f2.8. This is the basic setting but, as you can imagine, I prefer to be safe than sorry! So, let me introduce you to my other friends: Canon 16-28 f2.8, Canon 50 f1.8 and Canon 70-200 f2.8. You don’t know what you can find on your way nowadays!

Being a food photographer means that I have to work a lot with the light, both natural and artificial: I always carry with me two small flashes, the Canon 430EXII and the Nikon SB-900, a 126 LED light panel, a small light-box, a tripod, a monopod, radio syncro-flash, battery charger and a polarizer.

Then I have my agenda, pens, 2 CF cards waterproof bag, 4 Canon 5D batteries, a bunch of AA batteries, a Rode Stereo Mic and other little stuff. The cat is not included in my bag! :D

By the way: I’m actually working with a Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW Nero. Not very satisfied with it, I think I’m going to change it with another one. Any advice?
