The Right Stuff: Gear for a New Generation of Multimedia Journalists

I was delighted to come across this post on Media Storm. It’s an interview with a friend and Media Storm producer, Rick Gershon, speaking about what gear he carries with him on an SLR photo/video shoot. A former student photographer of the year in the US, Rick was on the cutting edge of SLR video when he worked for the Dallas Morning News. He then went on to work with Getty Images as their first multimedia journalist where I spent a day with him in New York in 2008 and then made the switch in 2010 to Media Storm. Here he gives some hard won insight into what gear he carries and why. Years of learning the hard way, for free!
