Announcement & How I Afford Travel Blogger Burnout . As a travel blogger, it probably wouldn’t sound right if…
My Travel Photography & Vlogging Kit
Just to be up front, if you click on an item and purchase it through Amazon I’ll get a small commission! These small commissions help keep me on the road, blogging and making more videos! I’m grateful for your GRRR support .
GoPro Hero5 Black
(Action & Extreme Sports)
Waterproof, touch screen LD screen back, wide angle lens with 4 modes and films in 4K. This is for rugged action shots and water sports, although some vloggers make this their main camera.
As a travel photographer, you’ll always feel your lens is never wide enough to capture epic landscapes. The 10-22 is wide to the point it’s almost fisheye lens. The best investment I’ve made in a lens.
This stick is sturdy and can handle GoPros and pocket cameras. Not only do I use it as a selfie stick but a monopod. This stick extends to 5 feet and is enough to stabilize a shot. T
When traveling, I can never have enough memory cards. I’ve used Sandisk cards a lot. The Extreme: good weather durability and can be used on HD, GoPro and 4K video. Read speeds up to 90MB/s; write speeds up to 60MB/s
Sometimes, I shoot my stand-ups with a white backdrop. It’s very similar to what studio photographers use and presents a clean back for your shoots.
This camera holster makes sure I always have my vlogging camera ready for shooting. I often strap it to my backpack strap and it’s secure next to my chest and armpit. Don’t get the ebay version (I have that & the release is a little sticky). Get the Peak Design one!
Computer & Video Editing Software
I’ve been Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for years. I’ll be needed ot upgrade to the creative cloud pretty soon. Adobe Premiere isn’t the most intuitive video editing software out there, but it does the job needed of professionals.
insignia USB card reader
I always pack a USB card reader for transferring footage from my memory cards to my laptop/external hard drive. This one is conveniently small and built like a USB stick so it fits anywhere.
