My Favorite Photography Items
Sony Alpha A6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with SELP1650 Lens (Top Choice for Travel Blogging Photography Gear)
This is my go to camera. It weighs only about one pound. It has customizable settings as well as automatic features. There is a bluetooth option to share to your phone, perfect for social media posting on the go.
This option comes with an awesome lens, and, in my experience, it is the only lens I’ve really needed when photographing for my travel blog. Definitely my top recommendation when shopping photography gear.
Camera Strap with Neoprene Strap, Accessory Pockets, and Quick Release Buckles
This camera strap is comfortable on your neck, and comes in a variety of patterns and colors. I love the two little pockets on the strap for my extra batteries and SD cards, and I find the quick release buckles very handy for when I want to quickly switch to the tripod.
SanDisk 128GB Extreme SD Card (Essential Choice for Travel Blogging Photography Gear)
I use this SD card with my Sony A6000 camera, and always keep a back up on hand in case I need extra space. These come in various memory capacity options, ranging from 16 GB to 256 GB. I personally find the 128 GB size to be big enough to hold hundreds of high quality photos. To me, packing plenty of photo space is essential in my travel blogging photography gear.
Lightweight Camera Mount Tripod Stand With Bag
I chose this tripod because it is lightweight. It is the Amazon Basics brand and is relatively inexpensive. It is easy to use, and I love that it folds down and comes with a carrying case. I’ve found that a tripod is an essential piece of travel blogging photography gear because it allows you to set up those perfect shots, and also is key when traveling solo.
Camera Battery Charger Set, 2-Pack
This camera battery charger works perfectly with my Sony Alpha A6000 Camera, and comes with 2 extra batteries. I always charge all 3 of my batteries the night before a shoot, and it gives me more than enough charge to last all day. I like that this charger is USB powered, perfect for plugging in anywhere, or using with a back up power bank.
Portable Power Bank & Back Up Charger (Smartest Choice for Travel Blogging Photography Gear)
This is always in my camera bag when packing up my travel blogging photography gear. This helps me charge my camera batteries when needed, and also is helpful if my phone or other electronics need a back up charge.
Snaptain SP500 Foldable Drone with GPS
This is my newest addition to my travel blogging photography gear. I did a lot of research and chose this drone as having the best value. I am a beginner drone user, so I wanted one with great options and quality video but that wasn’t too expensive (just in case I accidentally fly it into a tree).
It is lightweight and folds down. It has awesome features like drawing its flight path, having it return to home, and the ability send content straight to your phone. I also love the follow me option, which is perfect if you’re traveling solo.
Camera Backpack (To Hold all Your Travel Blogging Photography Gear)
This camera backpack has quality fabric with a rain cover for keeping your valuables safe. It has a dedicated camera zone, space for a laptop, and room for other items as well. I like that it even has a tripod holder. It comes in a variety of colors.
Camera Wrist Strap
I like using this little wrist strap when I am traveling solo and don’t have too much other stuff in my hands to juggle. When carrying a lot of other travel blogging photography gear, like the tripod or the drone, I use the camera neck strap. But for simple photography sessions, I use this smaller wrist strap.
Lens Cleaning Wipes
I always try my best to protect my camera lens, but these definitely come in handy every once in awhile. They are individually wrapped, so it’s very easy to just toss a few into your camera bag.
Micro USB Cords
I always have one or two extra USB cords in my camera bag. I feel like these are so easy to misplace, and I never want to be caught without one when my camera needs a charge.
