WHAT TO BRING
We do our best to keep you comfortable but let us know if there is something that you can’t eat, please let us know. Weather in these mountains is unpredictable. During the day it ll be pleasant but the nights can be really cold so you need to bring warm clothes and a light jacket. A comfortable pair of shoes, a good hat, warm gloves and sunblock is recommended.
In terms of camera kit you can bring your kit but a light and sturdy tripod with some lenses for landscapes and general photo opportunities such as a 24-70mm for landscapes is the favourite choice. I would suggest a macro lens of some sort and then maybe an intermediate zoom (70-200 or 100-400) so that you don’t miss anything in terms of opportunity. During the evenings we will have a chance to critique and look at participants’ work.
