This morning I posted a quick snap on Instagram of the camera kit that I'm taking out for Jason Aldean's 2014 Burn It Down Tour. My brother Chris and I are doing official tour and live music photography for the tour. We've shot three dates earlier in the year, and this month we're on deck for a run of 5 massive gigs in baseball stadiums across the US (basically a concert photographer's dream).
A lot of people have been asking exactly what all the pieces are in the kit, so I thought it would be helpful to list out everything. Hit the jump for the full list of gear!
