Thanks for sharing your experiences and methods for travel photography Steve. Even though I am still an amateur photographer, I totally agree with how diverse and adaptable you have to be while travelling and the different sets of skills you need to develop.
Its interesting to hear you talk a lot about the logistics of travelling with a whole stack of equipment and what difficulties and challenges that may be encountered. I suppose its all the prep and organisation that really pays off when you are on location. I’ve only ever been really minimal when it comes to equipment, at present my Fuji X100 with a couple of filters will do me, but I’m grateful to see how professionals travel and what the emphasis should be on when choosing what gear to take.
The Allahabad shot is amazing!
