According to PetaPixel, Jim Golden shot the photograph above after arranging more than 190 cameras, lenses, and accessories in his studio. He then set to work with his stylist Kristin Lane and his photo assistant Sam Slater.
The equipment seen in the photograph was provided by 20 different photographers in the Portland area. It includes all kinds of gear, from large format cameras with bellows to the latest and greatest DSLR lenses. Golden had the photogs drop off their gear collections a few days prior to the photo shoot.
The morning of the shoot, he and his team took all the gear out of their protective cases and arranged them on tables. They then set the largest cameras and pieces down on the ground first, and arranged the smaller items around the larger ones.
Neatly arranging all the items took roughly 10 hours to do.
