10 Pieces of Gear Every Backcountry Photographer Should Own

Get the shot in style with these backcountry essentials.

Multi-day treks through the backcountry require much more planning than your average outdoor photoshoot. Keeping you (and your camera) warm, dry, and functioning at your peak is paramount to a successful photo-adventure. I've had my share of close calls and uncomfortable nights in the wilderness, so I've put together a list of the gear I never leave home without.

I've decided to forgo mentioning the traditional photography gear such as tripods and filters because I assume those are a given and everyone has their own preferences (I'm a Sony man, myself). Obviously this list could be nearly endless if I included every little bit of equipment that I found helpful outdoors, so this list is dedicated to the equipment that I've found really go that extra mile for helping me have a successful overnight photoshoot.
