A Photographer’s Guide to Packing for Holiday Travel

Photographers packing for holiday travel often spend more time selecting photo gear than clothing and related personal items. Considering all the variables that go into packing the perfect photo bag or pack, this is quite understandable. One method that works for me is laying out on a table all the gear I’d like to bring, and whittling it down to a manageable amount based on what I expect to photograph. Ideally, I’ll have a home base to store whatever gear isn’t needed on a particular outing. Traveling light and comfortably cannot be overrated.

Made in America: 10 Companies with Products Made in the USA

“Because the cases are waterproof and airtight, they can float—with a certain amount of weight inside.”

The Pre-Game Party: Essential Tailgating Gear

I went to my first NFL game when I was about 14 years old—and I went with a group of fairly affluent people who were also raging superfans. We drove to the game in a purpose-bought touring van with a custom interior, complete with a team-matched color scheme, a refrigerator, card table with six swiveling captain’s chairs, a hot plate, and microwave.  As a naïve kid who wasn’t that much into football, I figured going to the game like that was the exception rather than the rule. Then we got to the parking lot and, boy, was I wrong.
