All of the travel photography gear I use for my blog

my travel photography gear I use for my travel blog

A lot of people ask what type of equipment we use when we travel so I wanted to let you in on exactly what we’re using! Trust me, I know photography equipment can get out of control so it’s important to only take what you need. Luckily most all of the equipment we listed can fit into the backpacks below. When you’re traveling, the most important thing is to not look like a tourist so I always try to only have one piece of equipment out at a time, especially if I’m in a crowded area. It’s also why I use a non business like anti theft backpack. The zippers are concealed and you can’t tear it with a knife. It’s also why I bring multiple SD cards. You can either photo dump at the end of every day or just change your SD card – just in case.
