The ultimate packing list for photography lovers

Photography and travelling they compliment each other. As it is said:  “A picture is worth a thousand words”. 

One of the things I enjoy the most while traveling around South America, is the possibility to capture some of  exciting, inspiring and memorable moments along the way.

Photography has bee one of my favourite activities, you would find me taking pictures during my free time and at work. 

You want to get the best shots, but also avoid unnecessary weight. Here is a  list with some essential items to bring along on your trip.
