Checklist before you go out photographing:

***** DO NOT PACK YOUR GEAR AT THE LAST MINUTE****

  • Fresh battery and formatted memory card already inserted into the camera.
  • Bring freshly charged batteries
  • Lenses for what you are photographing; wide-angle lens, mid-range lens, and zoom lens. If you have a prime lens, bring it and experiment.
  • Tripod
  • Filters
  • Head Lamp
  • Lens cleaning cloth – you can buy them at Dollarama. You don’t need to buy the expense cleaning cloth.
  • Remote if you are doing long exposure, or you can use the timer on your camera
  • Camera rain cover - keeps out rain and dust. I use shower caps from the hotels .

 

Weather gear:

  • Bring clothing for the unexpected weather change. I always carry rain pants and a rain jacket in my camera bag.
  • Bear Spray
  • Bear Bangers
  • Wear waterproof boots
  • Think about getting waterproof gaiters
  • Gloves
  • Beanie hat – I use a Nike Dryfit because it’s light

 

Other 

  • Light snacks that can stay in your bag and have a long shelf life. 
  • Bring water

 

The main thing, be safe, do put yourself in danger’s way, have fun and take great photos .
