Michael Heiman, Getty’s Director of Global Event Operations, has his work cut out for him in Rio.

From the not-so-glamorous task of installing cables, to the confusion caused when he wore a green shirt to a local hardware store, his posts have offered a fascinating look at what it takes to cover a colossal event like the Olympics.
And of course, there’s the gear. Observe:
