Heading to the Bering Straits next week presents all kinds of challenges in terms of what photographic gear to take, how to keep it safe when flying to Alaska and then safe when traveling in zodiacs or hiking. Nikon have asked me to write a post for their Nikon Cinema Blog on “my tricks of the trade” for a shoot of this type. I will post a link when the story is published. Meanwhile the Nikon blog has some other fascianting behind the scenes stories from great shooters from around the world.
One thing I know will be useful is a waterproof pack to get my gear from the ship to shore, or just dry in the rain. My recommendation would be to check out the great range from Hyperlite. They are strong, waterproof and super light weight, which is the perfect combination for travel… And made by company based in the State of Maine!
