At the time I’m writing this, I am packing for my wedding in Mexico. I thought it would be suitable for me to share some packing tips for photographers about to travel.
- Think about it: Think about where you’re going, what you will be doing and what you might need. No need to overpack with gear that you will not use on the trip
- Remember the essentials: Batteries, cleaning cloth, memory cards, etc.
- One bag to rule them all: Choose the right bag. Too small and you’re gear might be too tight or not fit. Too big and it can be cumbersome. Choose wisely.
- Offloading: Extra memory cards are great, but if you’re going on a long trip, a memory backup drive (built-in card reader) can be useful. An iPad can always be a great tool for photo backups.
- Juice: Be sure to bring a battery charger. You never know if you’re going to shoot enough to kill all those extra batteries you packed.
