Packing for Iceland


Posted August 8th, 2014 by

I’m packing up for a ten-day photo adventure trip to Iceland with a group of intrepid photographers. Our photographic goals are birds and landscapes, and we’ll be shooting like crazy from sun up to sun down – which is a really long time in the Icelandic summer! Each day will bring puffins, glaciers, icebergs, whales, gannets, skua, volcanoes, sheep and gorgeous light. Can’t wait.
Here’s the gear I’m bringing for this trip:
Gura Gear Bataflae 32L
Nikon 200-400mm f/4
Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
Nikon 50mm f/1.8
Nikon TC-14E II
Extension Tubes
Nikon SB-910
Nikon TTL
