This short blog post is for everybody who will ask the same question over the next 2+ weeks... 

  1. Pack like you pack for vacation.
  2. Bring as much gear as you can carry (comfortably). I'd prioritize in this order...
  • Camera
  • Lenses
  • Speedlights
  • Tripod
  • Stands
  • Strobes
  • Modifiers.
  • (Your laptop should already be packed, because after all... you WOULD be packing your laptop for vacation, yes?)

If you can't pack everything, you can always ship items to the hotel.  Your local packing and shipping store can help you with that, as they did last year for me.   A little hint, pre-pay for the return label so you can just leave the package with the hotel and have them take care of it for you.  Don't forget to tip the bellman!!!


Don't overthink it! Just show up!


What did I miss?   Please add your suggestions!

My First... (thoughts for this Sunday)

Do you feel it?
