Other than your camera, what essential/piece of kit do you take on every trip?
It is a long list that begins with things like a 75L backpack, tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, first aid kit, toothbrush, etc. but in a way, I like to think that nothing is essential but maybe just necessary for a specific trip I’m doing. An advice that I like to give is that it’s essential not to travel with too many gears and try instead to stay as light as possible. In the end, the secret for a good picture is to be there at the right moment and it can be hard if there’s heavy equipment slowing you down.
Where’s next on your bucket list?
After 20 days in the Arctic, I actually need to go someplace remote. It sounds crazy, but what is truly crazy is the number of photographers I saw during my last trip to Norway. Also, I’m excited about a new project I’m working on that involves the South West USA.
If you were to recommend 5 places everyone should visit, what would they be?
Not following any particular order here, but I’d definitely say:
Patagonia – Home of some of the most incredible mountains in the world.
The Dolomites – The incredible mountains all around make your head spinning. High risk to fill up every SD card!
New Zealand – Love the variety of this country. Seascape and mountains can be shot on the same day, even in the same afternoon.
Faroe Islands – Rugged weather, incredible cliffs, and crazy waterfalls. Convinced yet?
What’s unknown – Someplace unknown that you haven’t probably even ever heard about. It doesn’t have to follow the “photography trends” to be a great location and you could truly come back home with unique images.
