Travel photography is an exciting thing. As a photographer, I always look forward to my next travel adventure as soon as I get back home from a recent trip.
Here are some 5 ideas to have in mind while you prepare for any travel photography:
Travel Photography Smart Gear Checklist:
- When on the go, it’s very important to have comfortable access to your equipment. That can be anything from camera bodies, lenses, filters, batteries, etc. Long are gone the days of the classic photographer camera bags!
There are many new alternatives such as the photography back-packs, messenger bags – and my all time favorite – sling photo bags. I like them best since they force me to pack light. The added advantage is the extra support for changing lenses and filters. Beware, always make absolutely sure you close those zippers tightly. I had lenses drop and damaged because of unzipped pockets.

That’s the case of Keith Carter, who would not travel more than a 50 miles radius from its location to capture very interesting photos. It’s true that not everyone is Mr. Carter and also the fact that, as wisely expressed by the Greco Roman mythology, which tells us that it’s not the final destination, but the journey what matters. A photography tour, in many instances, can produce a feeling of trepidation at exploring a new horizon, but the experience from conquering a new landscape can’t be ignore lightly.
