Travel Photography Gear – What We Use

We get messages everyday asking how we take our photos? So here’s a list of all the travel photography gear we use to capture our shots on the road.

Camera + Accessories

Nikon D3300

Our most valuable piece of travel photography gear!

Our Nikon is light, easy to use and the perfect camera to explore the world with. We use a standard 18-55mm kit lens for most of our shots and adjust the settings manually depending on the amount of natural lighting.

When buying a camera make sure to grab a Spare Battery, a Camera Carry Bag and a high capacity SanDisk Extreme SD Card.

Polaroid 72-inch Deluxe Tripod

Our most asked question every day is how we take all of our couple shots. Well here is the answer.

If you’re looking to take couple shots or even professional shots of yourself without relying on strangers then you will NEED a tripod.

This things has come with us through sand, sea and every kind of terrain you can think of.

Go Pro

GoPro HERO4 Black

For underwater or close to water shots.

If ever we need a shot that’s impossible for our Nikon to capture, we turn to the Go Pro.

There are more up to date versions available such as the GoPro HERO6 Black, although we rarely use it so feel no need to upgrade.

Again, don’t forget the crucial accessories – Carry Case, FloatieSpare BatteryCharger etc.

Macbook & Adobe Lightroom

Macbook Air

Not only do we do all of our editing and work on our Mac but it’s the root of everything we own.

If you’re serious about working online or working whilst travelling you’re going to need to carry your computer with you. We’ve met too many people on the road that regret not taking their Mac with them. As for editing our photos, I guess we’ll have to put together a tutorial real soon full of all our Lightroom tips and tricks…

iPhone & UNUM


Now where would be without our trusty iPhone.

This thing has basically built us a job with it’s apps and software! Right now especially with Instagram, this piece of metal is our most needed item of equipment on the road. How else would we connect with all you beautiful people!

Not only do we use it to post on social media but we use a tool called UNUM to schedule our Instagram posts and keep our feed looking colourful!

Power Bank

Anker Power Bank

A travellers essential. In this digital world we need our electronics wherever we go and there aren’t always plug sockets in the places we explore!

This back up power source has saved our asses on many occasions and helped us plan and navigate our way around the globe…

External Hard Drive

La Cie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 / USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive

Our little piece of gold dust!

We back up everything we own on this piece of travel photography gear, just incase our Macbook ever dies on us, our iCloud magically disappears or our equipment unluckily breaks all at once.

There’s no safer way to store your media than the old fashioned way…

    Hey guys ! We already follow you on IG but only discover your blog right now. Love it 😍
    Have a quick question for you, do you guys use a connected remote to your DSLR to trigger the shot or do you use a self timer and then you RUN as fast as you can ?
    Would love to know how you guys figure this out 😉
    Keep up your good vibes guys, you’re such an inspiration.
    With love ❤️Claire and Arthur (@lesdroners)

      Hey guesses. Thanks for the positive feedback! 😀 We’ve never used a remote. Always just the self timer on 9 x shots and that usually does us. Thanks again for the support and hopefully see you out in the world somewhere!

      Heyyy thanks so much 😁 I don’t think we’re going to sell our presets! We’ve thought about it but for the time being I think we’re just going to leave it, haha!
