West is the first place that comes to mind. What kind of equipment are you looking at?

well some more paul buff lighting stuff, i might buy more bee's and then look to rent light mods and power. otherwise just rent it all.

I have 3 Travelite 750's with umbrella's and softboxes (plus grid spots, snoots, even a fresnel attachment) if we can strike a deal instead of renting from down there.

that's a definite possibility, but im just gona see what i can budget and go from there most likely 2 more ab800's soft boxes and power sources.

West Photo's policy is 100 percent down, i.e. if you want to rent a $1,600 dollar lens, you have to write a check for 1600 and a guarantee that the equipment will be returned. Good company, bought lots of stuff their over the years.

HBRental Service has a nice ring to it. this could prove to be a fairly lucrative venture Brian.

oh man i think HBR's policy might be a lot better than giving them a bounceable check lol

Yeah, I'm kinda easy.

@Josh -- lucrative? Well, I'm not in it for that -- but paying in beer seems to work fine by me!
