Winter trekking with a load of camera gear, my trusted companions!

Gear for a professional outdoor photographer is the equivalent of a trumpet for a jazz player. These essential tools enable us to turn encounters with sea slugs, sand dunes and soaring eagles into artistic masterpieces worth thousands of dollars, a couple hundred Facebook likes and a prime spot on our mother’s fridge.


My camera gear goes everywhere with me and I know it so intimately I can operate the basic functions with my eyes closed. It’s like a best friend who’s always there and I count on it for my livelihood. The key pieces, most near and dear to my heart, all have special nicknames.
