I often wonder.....
I look at these craiglist ads "photographer needed for xyz location" do you ever wonder if it's legit if it's not some sort of psycho who is trying to lure you in and then take away your equipment? Not to mention might hurt you very badly? I am wondering how do photographers protect themselves?
Also traveling to 3rd world countries. I was thinking of going back to Russia one day to visit but being myself from there I know the crime there is quiet high. Moscow is #3 in world in crime. How do you protect yourself and your equipment? Looking how 7d goes for $2000, each lens is roughly another $1000-1500 so talking about $5000 worth of equipment hanging on your neck in foreign country.
I never see anyone talk about safety just wondering if anyone knows a good article/section
