Top 10 Gear for Climbing Photography

As a climber and a photographer, one of the more important questions I get is what kind gear I bring to assure a successful and safe photo shoot while up on any mountain.

This blog will focus on my top 10 gear that I take whenever I go up a 2000 meter~ 3000 meter (6000 feet to 10,000 feet) mountain to take photographs during all seasons except winter. (The type of camera, lens, and tripod will be posted on another blog because you can’t just climb a mountain with only your camera!)

Note: I have over a hundred climbs and all of them have always been learning experiences on what to bring and not to bring so I hope this article aids any photographer interested in climbing up a mountain or going in the wild to take beautiful photographs.

There are a lot of expensive lenses out there. From the prime Ef 85mm F1.2 IS II USM that costs around $2,300 to the heavy EF 800mm F5.6 that cost around $14,000 dollars. It’s a no-brainer why photography can be an expensive hobby or a profession that usually starts many pros with a low profit margin! However, pro or amateur, one of the lenses that I highly recommend is the EF Canon 50mm F1.8 Mark 2.  This IQ (image quality) of this lens is just amazingly clean and sharp producing amazingly great images for less than a hundred bucks!
