I don’t think any of us is particularly happy with how we look in our passport pictures: pale, lifeless, and way too serious. You may have wished for a more flattering photo whenever you saw the mess you have in your passport. Instagram influencer Alisha Marie did, but it nearly got her barred from her flight! She shared her hilarious story in a video, and it’s a perfect example of why you should never look “hot” in your passport photos.
Moment Strohl Mountain Light 45L Backpack: a camera backpack for serious wilderness photographers
I feel like I’ve kissed a lot of frogs when it comes to camera bags. Sometimes it feels a little like Goldilocks searching for something ‘just right’. Not too heavy, not too small, room for items besides camera gear, but I need to bring ALL THE GEAR! I’m not sure such a thing actually exists, it may actually be a unicorn. I’ve never yet found The Perfect Camera Bag (yes those capitals are deliberate!).
Perhaps a far better approach then is to find a bag that exactly fits the requirements for a particular type of photography. Most of us do more than one type, and I must say that the requirements of an outdoors adventure photographer will be very different from say, a city-based portraits on-location photographer. With this in mind, I got to test out the Moment Strohl Mountain Light 45L camera backpack and give it a good run through its paces in the outdoors.

Is travel photography dead?
Ok, I know this above title sounds a bit clickbaity – and to be honest, it is – proclaiming anything to “be dead” always sounds alarmist. But really, I don’t see a bright future for the medium I love.
Travel photography is either already dead, or is turning into something so far removed from the spirit of travel that it needs a new name entirely.
Couple posts 2019 vacation photos to Facebook, police fines them for violating the lockdown
I believe we all miss traveling at this point, considering that I’ve seen many people share photos from their last year’s vacations. But when an Australian couple recently did the same, it cost them a big, fat fine. They were mistakenly reported for violating the lockdown and reportedly ordered to pay $3,000 AUD (almost $2,000 USD).
Travel like a photographer – advice for the soul
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. ” -Anthony Bourdain
This headline might come off a bit pretentious for some of you, I mean how do photographers travel any differently than the rest of the population? Fair question, but for better or for worse, we are different in our own way.
