A common question, asked by readers and workshop members is —what’s in your bag? The cameras and lenses that I use are well detailed in articles and reviews on this site. Which ones I bring on any given shoot very much depends on whether I’m primarily after wildlife, or landscapes. Also, whether I’m traveling by air or by car, or if I’ll be doing a lot of hiking when I get there. But, in addition to my camera gear, what accessories, gadgets, gizmos and tools are needed for field work, and which ones are best?
These non-photographic items make doing ones work either safer, more convenient or more efficient. Below are the tools that I usually have with me on every field trip. The types and brands that I have chosen were based on research, availability at the time, or simply whim. Some are many years old. Some are fairly new.
Two of the primary characteristics that are found in most of these items is that they are small and light weight, and also of high quality. Life has taught me that buying inexpensive tools always costs more in the long run, and that when traveling, especially by air and when hiking, every ounce counts.
