Just thought I'd share an example of one of my portable studio kits look like when set up. I do a lot of shoots for clients on location and need the versatility and still maintain the same quality as one should, just like in any studio setting.
Originally I estimated there was about 60kg of gear in this photo, but since its missing a lot of things - that figure should be around 100kg, give or take a few. Normally dont use that Bowens head anymore in the photo but I had left another Bron head at home so this served as back up with beauty dish.
*Missing in this photo are generally bigger lighting modifiers ie. softboxes and parabolic umbrella, some more strobe heads and miscellaneous equipment - as this was set up for a hair shoot - the focus was mainly around the top half of the model*
