How do you make the most of your adventures?  

 

Every trip is different, so treat it differently.  As photographer/filmmaker, the trick has always been to match the medium for the moment. When you're filming... it's a constant dance as things can move freely in and out of frame, but when snapping you're trying to capture a moment in time

So what toys do you need? I'm not a gear head and I like to pack as light as possible, however no single camera can do everything & not all cameras are created equally.  

Keep your life simple when it comes to toys... pack less, so you can use them more.  Once you have a few trips under your belt, you'll start to develop a style and a level comfort with all of your gear.

My Packing style hasn't changed much over the years. Here is snap of my pack list to India in 2010 and it's pretty similar today. 

The most recent series I created for USTOA, was shot solely on Canon 5dm3's + GoPros.  I carry 5 lenses + 2 bodies at all times. Simple.   Bells and whistles aren't my forte... story is and anything to hinders my ability to do that isn't worth carrying.
