What photography equipment to take on a trek

I’ve received many requests for a video on what kind of photography equipment to take on a trek. The key to choosing the right gear for a trek is to plan your photography out in advance.

Accessories you can take: If you’re a serious photographer and plan to take filters for your lenses, I would recommend neutral density (ND) filters because they are colourless filters. They reduce the amount of light passing through your lens, making it possible to shoot still-shots and videos at wider lens openings. They do that without affecting the shutter speed or colour-rendition of the image.
