As a travel photographer, vlogger, and content creator, you always need to be spontaneous and quick at what you do without having to worry about all the accessories you’d need. 

Thanks to the constant advancement in technology that has led to lighter and smaller photography accessories for all the travel photographers. 

It’s not always about being at the right place at the right time as a travel photographer. 

But, is also about having the right camera and accessories at that right place to document it perfectly. 

Let’s get started! 

1. A Portable Yet Sturdy Tripod

A Tripod that is lightweight and sturdy should always be in your travel bag because you’d not want to miss a chance of catching a sunset or sunrise from a beautiful hilltop. 

 Make sure that the Tripod you choose perfectly fits your camera and makes the process of capturing a time-lapse or a picture hassle-free. 

2. Cleaning Kit for Lenses

This one is quite obvious because capturing on the go leads to your camera catching dirt more often. 

So you might need a cleaning kit to keep your camera lenses clean and dust-free that captures the exact image witnessed by bare eyes. 

3. Photographers’ Backpack

When travelling for a photography mission, don’t rely on the tourist bag. You’d not want to damage your accessories over a tourist bag.  

A photographers bag is something durable, water-resistant, and should protect your gears and equipment effectively. 

If you have high-end cameras and accessories, investing in protecting these accessories can help you minimise any future damage. This backpack will protect all your accessories no matter how far you travel. 

4. LED Lights

Travel photography can take you anywhere at any place, at any time, so it is always better to have good LED lights to capture high-resolution images. 

RGB LED lights are great for travel photography as you get colour options and you can get creative with your location, props, and the final outcome. 

A LED light also comes to your rescue when you’re in the dark because safety should always be the priority. 

5. A Portable Battery
