Recommended Camera Equipment
For this photography workshop, we recommend that you bring the longest lens that you own whether this is a 400mm, 500mm or 600mm. If the longest lens you own is a 300mm lens but you have a 1.4x or 2.0 extender this would be suitable for our workshop. In fact, you should pack your extenders as this will allow you to further vary your focal length on this photography workshop.
You will also want a zoom such as a 100-400 or a 200-600, a shorter zoom such as a 70-200 may be useful, & you will want a wild angle for landscapes.
We recommend that you bring weather covers to protect your expensive lens from the weather in case it rains.
You should also pack a tripod that can go down low on the ground or beanbag to help steady your lens.
For this photography workshop, the weather can be changeable so we would recommend that you pack layers of thin fleeces or mid shirts & jumpers since you can remove items of clothing as you start to warm up. You don't need to bring camouflage clothes but please do pack neutral coloured clothes so that you blend into the landscape. You should also bring a warm waterproof coat & waterproof trousers in case it rains, so you are covered for all eventualities.
Silk gloves or a thin pair of thermal gloves with rubber grip on the fingers & palm will help to keep your hands warm. Silk gloves are great for wicking away moisture from your hands, leaving them dry & therefore lovely & warm. Gloves where the fingers are cut away so that you can operate your camera with them on would be a good substitute.
Don't forget to pack sensible waterproof walking boots & a warm hat to protect your head in case it is windy.
