Gear Recos for My 2016 Mt. Rainer Photo Workshops

Hey All

I'm super excited about my 2016 Mt. Rainier photo workshops. Click here for info:

In preparation for the workshops, I thought I'd put together a gar reco list. Here goes!

Digital SLR or mirrorless camera, extra batteries, extra memory cards and charger. Laptop with charger; Photoshop and/or Lightroom loaded.

Keep in mind that this is a photographing and processing workshop. We'll have time for both, and both are great fun!


17- 40mm lens - to capture wide views.

70-200mm lens - for isolating subjects in a sweeping landscape.

Study tripod - to steady your camera for HDR and low-light photography.

Polarizing filter - to darken a blue sky.

Variable neutral density filter - please make sure you have the right filter diameter! Or better yet, a set of ND filters.

Lens cleaning cloth - to remove dust from the front element of your lens.

Nik's HDR Efex Pro or Photomatix Pro. Info on my Plug-in page.

Backpack-style bag - for trekking up and down hills.

NEOS overshoes, for shooting in water. You probably will not need them, but they are always good to have handy.

Wide-brim hat - to shade your face from the sun. Sunscreen, too.
Head-mounted flashlight - so you can see what you are doing in the dark - before sunrise

See you soon in Mt. Rainer - where we will be up before sunrise and stay out until after the sun sets. We'll carpool to the different locations, so we'll get to know each other a little better, and at the same time save gas.

Please shoot me an email if you have any questions.

Explore the light,
