What Gear do I Need?

Camera Gear

There’s an old saying that “the best camera is the camera you have with you!”

Any camera is fine, but you will have the best experience if you bring a DSLR or Mirrorless Camera.

Make sure you have a couple of fully charged batteries and plenty of space on your memory card.

Tripod & Accessories

No extra photography gear is required but feel free to bring other gear if you like.

Wet Weather

Awesome! In photography a little rain is actually an incredible thing and some of our best photos are often taken in “bad weather” If we have light showers or a bit of drizzle we will be out there making the most of it. However if we have sustained rain re-booking vouchers will be issued so you can rebook on a date at your convenience. (Note there is some great undercover locations to experience and shoot from.)
