Top 10 Recommended Gear for an Outdoor Sports Photo and Video Shoot

If you’re doing any kind of outdoor sport photography or video you need the right balance of necessary, tough, weather-proof equipment. You’re also limited to what you can hike, climb, ski or snowboard with.

Here’s a top ten list of my recommended equipment from my latest filming project in the Swiss resort of Verbier with Team GB snowboarder Jamie Barrow:

  1. Camera and backup cameras – 2 x Nikon D7000s, 4 x Contours
  2. Radios – 2 x Motorola walkie talkies
  3. Spare batteries and memory cards – Nikon battery grip and Sandisk Extreme SD Cards
  4. Tripod – Camlink lightweight tripod
  5. External and Lapel Microphones – Rode StereoMic Pro
  6. Lenses – Telephoto, prime, fish-eye and kit
  7. Stabilizer – Glidecam XR 2000
  8. External Flash – Nissin Di866
  9. Laptop – Macbook Pro 13″
  10. Lock

And to carry it all in? The Dakine Mission Photo Backpack has never let me down!
