There's always the temptation to bring every lens, filter, and gadget with you on the road; after all, you bought it intending to use it. Right?  Years of travel have taught me that while I have the best intentions to use all that great equipment if it's too bulky and too heavy to carry around, it will end up staying in the hotel room.  Check out the section below to see the gear essentials I pack on my travels.

THERE IS AN ART TO  

Packing

LEARN HOW TO BECOME A PRO!     

If only someone had pulled me aside ten years ago and said, "you don't use packing cubes"?   Maybe that shouldn't be a hot topic in your thirties, so I digress.  I'm happy to say I found my saving grace in these about three years ago, and I'll never travel without them again.  There's an art to packing.  It lies in both WHAT you take with you and HOW you take it with you. It's been with a great deal of trial and error and much discipline to determine what's necessary to include in my luggage.  Read the articles below to help you get a handle on everything packing-related.
