I get travel photography gear questions all the time. So, I thought I’d do a Q&A about my photo kit.
Check out my photography on IG at @brendanvanson. | Blog of my gear: https://www.brendansadventures.com/my-travel-photography-gear/
My photography gear is actually pretty simple. Yes, with the photography channel I also have a lot of extra things for the vlogging side of things. But, for still photos, I really don’t have a massive kit.
Travel photography gear has to versatile and easy to pack. It’s not smart or efficient to pack around massive amounts of specialty gear as a travel photographer. So, you need to make compromises and shoot equipment that has multiple purposes.
My travel photography camera is a 5d mark iv. And there are some people who might think that the Sony A7ii or A7iii is better. But, I’m happy with this camera body.
As for my travel photography lens. Well, I don’t have one. Rather, I have 4 lenses that I use for different purposes. I carry a 16-35mm, a 70-200mm lens, a 50mm lens, and a 14mm lens.
I also have some specialty gear like a GoPro and a drone. There’s also mention in this video about my tripod, and basically anything else I use to make still images. Then, I end this video doing a bit of a Q&A.
Tomorrow on the photography channel, I’m back exploring and taking pictures here in Southern California.
