What's in my camera bag?

I've been a Canon user all my life, and currently use a combination of DSLR and mirrorless camera bodies, EF and RF lenses, DJI drone and Benro tripod.

What gear do I need for a photo workshop?

I've unpacked my camera bag – a Lowepro Whistler – to give you an idea of the gear that I use. Obviously, not all of this goes into the backpack in one outing – I'm on a constant mission to streamline my outfit and make it as lightweight as possible! I've used Canon cameras for over 40 years. I'm not claiming they're the best, but I do think familiarity with a system helps to make you a better, more efficient and intuitive photographer. Over the next few years, I envisage phasing out my DSLR body and lenses and switching entirely to mirrorless. Having said that, I love my Canon 5D MkIV and it continues to perform brilliantly, especially for landscapes and travel. It's mainly for wildlife and astrophotography that I'd switch to the Canon R5.
