Itinerary Terms & Conditions Recommended Equipment

Winter in Alberta Recommended Equipment. Pet, Senior, Landscape, portrait studio, photographer in Miami and Sou

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:
