Lenses

Pack a fast, wide angle camera lens and a tele zoom lens to cover all eventualities. Take a look at the Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S and Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 to get you started.

DSLR Camera

Look for a good all-rounder such as the Canon 7D or Nikon D700. Consider the conditions you will be shooting in most frequently and research the DSLR cameras that will cover all bases.

A Wireless Flash and Flash Modifier

It’s worth considering a wireless flash such as the Nikon SB-910. A flash modifier ‘bounces’ the light from the flash to provide a more flattering finish to the photo.

Extra Batteries

Keep your spare batteries fully charged and close by for any emergencies. Invest in a battery grip, which will allow you to further prolong battery life.

A Tablet with Data Plan

Invest in a tablet (such as an iPad or android equivalent) to allow you to view your images in a larger format. A data plan means you can upload and file photos on the fly, too!

In-car Mobile WiFi Hotspot

In-car WiFi such as the Huawei E5573 will save you hunting around for a WiFi connection. Simply plug into the car’s cigarette lighter and work in the same way as you would over a WiFi connection.
