Does My Kit Fit? Airport Security

Posted on Updated on

We caught up with multi-award-winning Guardian Sport Photographer Tom Jenkins over the summer and took a look at what gear he fits in his Airport Security:

Tom Jenkins Airport Security 1

Here’s what Tom says:

This is the typical kit I take to a football match. Layout is as follows anti-clockwise from top left:

1/ 24-70mm 2.8
2/ underneath hidden 70-200mm 2.8 on top SB900 flash and 1.4 converter.
3/ mini tripod head (for remote), 28mm 2.8 for remote
4/ D4
5/ D3s, D3, spare battery
6/ 500mm f4 with on top mini tripod legs and pocket wizards.

For a football match I would also take another D3 body plus 300mm f2.8 in a laptop bag with my mac. Waterproof gear goes in front pocket of Airport Security along with stool. Monopod down the side of the bag.

Tom is offering a Masterclass to Fixation customers, in London.  He’ll be sharing his techniques and ideas, inspiration and creative drive, as well as suggesting essential tools for creating the perfect image of the greatest sporting moments.

Tom took this photo of Oscar Pistorius, South African paralympic runner at the Olympic Stadium, Stratford, London.
To see more of Tom’s images, see his page on the Fixation Gallery.
You will also be able to find more of his work here: www.guardian.co.uk and www.observer.co.uk
ABOUT TOM:
I started being a professional sports photographer in 1989. For the vast majority of the time since I have worked for The Guardian and The Observer newspapers. Of the many international events I have covered probably the 5 World Cups and 3 Olympics stand out as the highlights. As a lover of sport and photography it has to be the best job in the world! One of the best pieces of advice given to me right at the start of my career was to ‘get yourself down to Fixation. They will sort it out!’. Ever since I have relied on them to fix my gear (be it Nikon, Canon then Nikon again!) and find me new equipment. Quite possibly I couldn’t do my job without the back-up I get from everyone at Fixation.
