You did the shoot at the school? Or did they come to you? Just curious about lugging the gear. I'm setting up a spare room for my "studio" and plan to try high key. I'll be begging for help when the time comes.
The shoot was at the school, as for lugging the gear about my lights and stands fit into large roller cases then another large bag for background stands and a 9' roll of paper.
I've been doing a few events so have worked out quite quick ways of setting up.
