Protecting camera gear backpacking is essential if it is to remain usable when traversing rugged environments. Here are 8 tips to protecting your camera gear when hiking or backpacking.
I had been photographing and hiking in the Stirling Range since the early 1980s with a 35mm film camera. By 1997, I was publishing my large format Horizon Calendar of West Australian landscapes and was hiking and camping with my 4×5 camera.
I made this popular Bluff Knoll image on Velvia 35mm film. First published in my Stirling Range postcard series and later as a poster in 1995. Back in the day, it was a large drum scan and film separations from 35mm. The poster is 70x48cm and came up very well.
