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:
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
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.
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.
The Masterclass will be on Tuesday the 4th of December from 6:30pm.
Tickets are strictly limited to 35 delegates for this very special evening.
Ticket price of £45 will entitle you to a signed copy of Tom’s new book “In the Moment” (cover price £30) as well as access to a whole raft of very special discounts on the kit that Tom uses on a day-to-day basis including:
ThinkTank Photo, Pocket Wizard, Aquatech, Lastolite, Manfrotto, and more… plus special offers on Nikon Pro gear and accessories!
Call Fixation on: 020 7582 3294 to reserve your place, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can purchase “In the Moment” from Fixation or from The Guardian
