Winter in Alberta Recommended Equipment — Alex Mironyuk Photography

Recommended Photo Equipment:

  • Camera (DSLR or Mirrorless) W/Extra Batteries And Memory Cards
  • Tripod with a ball head (leveling base is optional but very helpful to take a panoramic shots)
  • Tripod legs spikes (you can't use a rubber ends on icy surfaces) 
  • At least 2 extra batteries or a battery pack. This is very important in arctic cold weather condition when your battery will die much faster than usual.
  • Wide to standard zoom lens, with their lens hoods (I carry 12-24mm and 24-70mm lenses)
  • Telephoto zoom lens for extraction and abstract scenes (I use a 70-200mm and 150-600mm lenses).
  • Circular polarizer filter to remove glare from the water and ice.
  • Graduated neutral density filters (if you use them)
  • Rocket blower and microfiber cloths for keeping glass surfaces dry and clean
  • Most importantly - a great attitude!

Recommended Camping Equipment:

  • Flashlight or headlamp
  • Hardcore winter clothing with thermal under layers  
  • Face Mask  
  • Winter hiking boots
  • Proper Ice Cleats. Don't buy a chip ones. You need good pair of spikes that really grip the ice.  I recommend you something like a Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System  
  • Thick Winter Gloves. I recommend brand "The Heat Company Austria"   
  • Hand Warmers to put inside your gloves
  • Foot warmers  
  • Backpack (bag) to carry photo gear.
