Travel Photography Gear Guide | John Greengo

For many photographers, nothing matches the excitement of heading off to a far-flung destination rich in photographic potential. The gear you choose to take will have a big impact on what images make the return journey home. Having the right gear on the road is important because when you’re away you typically have limited time, equipment and resources. The items you choose to bring need to match the purpose and scope of your travels. A clear understanding of what you want to achieve and the situation you will be in will determine what specific items you need and overall how much gear to bring. The obvious travel conundrum is how to bring everything you might need, have backups, and not exceed weight limitations. The key is bringing only the most useful gear and backing up the most likely points of weakness. Failure in any one of four key areas—camera, lens, power and memory—can put an end to your photography adventure.
