Camera kit I use for landscape photography

A long exposure of a moody and dramatic sunset at Hope Cove in South Devon

I often get asked what kit I use for shooting different photographic subjects, and one that comes up regularly is landscape gear.

And if I’m camping as well as hiking, I even take less kit with me – just the bare essentials. Below you’ll see my most essential kit, which is minimal to say the least. But why carry what you don’t need?

Ultra high-res Etihad Stadium image

Machester City Etihad Stadium

Winnats Pass in the Peak District UK at sunset Orton Effect
