My Photo Gear

I get asked all the time about the photography gear I pack as a travel photographer.  Well, there’s not better way to show it all off than via video.

I think that people are most interested in the fact that my camera gear is not quite as top-end as they’d expect.  I really don’t have much money at all, and any extra disposable income I make goes directly into travel or photography gear.  I obviously have to make some concessions to get by a bit.  The things I don’t compromise on, in regards to cost, are the long lenses.  If you need to be shooting 200mm, don’t waste your time with a lens that only goes f/6.3 or f/5.6.  The one thing I keep compromising on is the body as it seems to be the most disposable aspect to my photography gear.

This is the short list of what I pack:

Now that’s obviously not a complete view of all the gear I pack with me, but rather a list of my photography gear. I also carry all sorts of accessories.
In total, my suitcase weighs 22 kilos and my camera bag that comes as a carry-on with me weights 13 kilos. That’s a solid 35 kilos or 100 pounds of photography gear.
