When a photographer is constantly on the road, choosing which items to bring will ultimately help or hinder him in the field. Although it would be fantastic to take one’s entire kit abroad, experience with basic travel regulations will tell any traveler to think twice before hitting the road. Ah, the baggage that comes with baggage these days – peeving limitations like baggage allowance and insurance costs, the fight for the overhead bins and space for leg room, and not to mention, the sheer mental, physical (and financial!) weight of lugging around six pieces of luggage and the kitchen sink for a few days.
Less is definitely more when it comes to packing for a trip around the globe, as convenience and practicality are luxuries one rarely enjoys when travelling with heavy professional gear these days. Although there may be little one can do about the weight of high-end cameras and lenses, much can be done when it comes to choosing a light and powerful computing device to bring with one at all times.

Because of its lightweight design, superior battery life and ability to quickly complete the task at hand, the Ultrabook becomes an extension of one’s unique form of self-expression. With inspiration coming from every aspect of life, artists are constantly inspired and driven by each moment they encounter.
With every travel photographer’s desire to capture the world through his lens also comes the need to interact and connect with the people he meets on his journey. People always want to express themselves and create content they can share with others whenever they can, whether it’s posting a simple black-and-white picture online or writing a groundbreaking photo essay on the mountains of Brazil. After all, taking the photo is but half of the adventure. Sharing the story completes the experience.
