Not really a question but had to share. Found this pic in a power point presentation sent to me in email.

This guy is taking the "walk around" lens to an extreme... me thinks he needs a burro to share the load!

Sheesh! 5 cameras?!? I'd be afraid to drop/break one. He must be using all primes?

I'm impressed with his innovative use of duct tape.

Anytime I see a Craigslist listing for a lens that says "I'm a Professional Photographer, so the condition is mint" (or sumthin to that effect), I send them a pic of this guy :p

I can relate, although this is freakin' silly. I shot golf for the PGA in the early 80s and the demands are tough. I carried 2 bags, 4 bodies, lots of lenses up to a 1000mm. Only once did I get to bring an assistant and thats when I shot it all with 2-1/4 70mm backs for some art director. The kneepads are a nice touch.

But I don't see the mandatory PRESS arm band. Is he a weekender? Is that a poodles head in the bucket?
