3 MUST HAVE LENSES FOR TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY 📸 (save for later!):

A few weeks ago, I shared the best camera bodies for beginner photographers. But when you’re investing in gear, it’s important to remember that it’s actually your lens that is probably the biggest factor in determining your image quality.

When going for lenses, it’s all about quality over quantity. In general, here are the three most important lenses every travel photographer should have in their bag:

📸 WIDE-ANGLE LENS (15-35mm): This is the ultimate lens for capturing tight spaces and sweeping landscapes; think waterfalls, caves, tall trees, or any landscape where you want to fit as much in the frame as possible

📸 A DO-IT-ALL LENS(24mm-70mm): This is probably the lens you’ll get the most use out of. It’s good for everything from wider shots to portraits, and even zooms in enough to still capture some detail or add a touch of compression.

📸 TELEPHOTO LENS (70-200mm): Having a telephoto lens is key for compression (like in this photo), wildlife photography, and capturing crazy close up detail of ridge lines, mountain faces.

Who else is upgrading some of their gear this Black Friday/Cyber Monday?!

Like so many others in New Zealand (especially Auckland), I found myself in a bit of a rut as of late. This recent lockdown has been both easier and harder - we know what to expect so it removes some of the unknowns, but it also makes it harder because the “novelty value” has worn off and we know precisely what kind of challenges we are likely to experience 😕

But now Auckland is in Level 3 we can enjoy a little more ‘normality’ - people can do things like get a takeaway coffee and pick up a meal (Level 4 in NZ means none of these things). Yesterday I went for a walk with my partner and dog senna_the_bmd to Maungawhau/Mt Eden on a glorious Spring day - the Tui and Kereru (NZ native birds) were flying around us as we climbed to the summit of the dormant volcano, gazing over its caldera to the 360 degree views of the city, as the sun hit the harbour and scattered like a million diamonds across the surface of its waters.

And it was exactly what I needed.

I hope for more of these moments both for myself and for everyone; these breaths of fresh air after what feels like a bit too long holding our breath underwater.

How are things where you are right now - are you in any kind of lockdown, or are you just doing ok generally? 💙

I got to meet with Joel before lockdown in NZ and I’ve loved seeing his work around dance studios in Auckland, producing some incredible new concepts & footage! We met for some adventures around Auckland and I’ll look forward to sharing more from our shoots! Definitely one of the pros of social media, to connect with new people & share your creativity together 📸✨

People need to vent sometimes. And all they want is for you to listen. That's all. Don't contradict them or tell them otherwise. Don’t solve their problems. Don't force your positivity on them. Don't try to change them. Don’t try to turn them into You. JUST BE THERE. AND LISTEN. With kindness, compassion and understanding. Give warmth and love. Be a true friend and help if you can if help is welcomed. Sometimes people only need to be heard, understood and acknowledged.
