  1. Keep your camera and gear WITH YOU. Yes, don’t check it. The last thing you want is for your luggage to get lost or damaged. We do NOT want you to open your suitcase in baggage claim the day before your shoot and have to replace equipment. (You might not be able to with such a short window, thus throwing your whole photo shoot off!)
  2. Buy a safe padded bag to transport your equipment. Now, being totally honest here, I am not the best with keeping my gear in safe spots…I am the worst with lens caps, I lay my lenses on the ground and well ….just DON’T be like me! This bag was the best purchase I made to help me keep everything safe and snug while we fly (and I use it for all my other shoots too!)

  1.  My last and final tip – Bring your laptop with you. YUP! Even if you don’t plan on editing and here is why: you want to make sure your SD cards do not get lost, damaged or corrupt. Minimize the risk by importing your photos immediately and backing them up on your laptop. Bonus is that when you get home you have one less step to do in your editing process! It’s a win-win!
