Hey guys.

This is kind of my 'big break'. Been a nightclub photographer for a while now and I just got an offer from a travel agency to come to Prague and shoot some video and photos for them.

It's going to be a six day trip /w travel (bus from Denmark), so that kinda counts as a day.

I get everything paid on advance: The travel, food, drinks and a special club card for a shit ton discounts on nightclubs.

Don't know of I'm ready though. I feel pretty confident, but by "moving" I don't feel I'm in my element.

Do you have any tips for a rookie? Anything I have to be cautioned about?

Shooting with a EOS 500D. Going to get myself a microphone for sound while video recording.

Pretty nervous.

also, get a backup camera (or get another camera and use 500D as backup)

Actually, you might want to get a bigger camera with a bigger lens. It doesn't really matter what it is, it just has to look slightly terrifying, signifying that you are a good and professional photographer. It's kind of sad but it is what it is.

if you're planning on doing video OP you're going to need a new body for sure. use the 500d as a backup and upgrade to at least 600d. the new body paired with a solid mic and LED light will for sure make your videos look better.

other than a new body grab a fuck-ton of extra batteries and a vertical grip.

OP here guys.

Thank you so much for all the suggestions.

Definitely going to check the LED suggestion and vertical grip.

Is a 24-LED panel large enough?

The 500D is all that I have and a Canon 18-135mm lens.

I actually have 2 videos shot and edited by myself.

They're a piece of shit, but I'm short on equipment.

https://vimeo.com/82832723 (best one in my opinion)

>>2234487
To be honest with you. I won't need a bigger one.

As >>2234521 said. There is a 720p @ 30 fps.

I was offered the opportunity to go to Prague with everything paid for. No wage.

I shoot pictures in a local nightclub every other weekend.

No i mean, initially, how did you start being a nightclub photographer. I mean, you just shoot for a while by yourself and then just asked the mamahment to shoot in their club for free? I mean why not, they get free promotion.
Just it`s what i am planning to do.

Nono. Just be confident and tell them you know your shit and you want to create a win/win situation for them.

Win for you: Couple free drinks? Free entrance + 1 friend, opportunity to get closer to the people @ the club.

Win for them: Photo coverage of events and big nights.

Trust me, costumers fucking love the camera. Even though some don't show it. Just go up to them and tell them you need to take a picture of them cus there aren't many pretty girls and you can't make a good album /wo any chick pics.

Be confident brua. Sorry for the language, I'm in a hurry

To be honest with you, you will.
It's not about need in the strictly pragmatic sense, but rather because the grip further enforces your authority as being a 'professional' there to take the fuck care of business.
It's there not so much for the utility of a vertical grip, as that of shear intimidation.

You will if you want to make this into a job (a shitty one, but if you have to play what you've been dealt..). The quality of your photos is sadly less important than if you look professional enough, meaning, if your camera is bigger than the camera of the wife of the guy that hires you. In long term, the photos start to be the things that matter, people up the chain will want good photos, people down the chain will want a good "photographer".
Again, it is what it is.
