Nikon D40 (Extra small DSLR camera body with a CCD sensor and electronic shutter capable of full-frame flash sync up to 1/1250 second.

Canon Powershot S95


Cokin P ND Filter Holder

Adhesive Backed Body Warmer (To keep batteries warm and functional in extreme cold)

US Customs form 4457 (Proof of ownership forms.  I keep these in the pack since I’ll probably forget to pack them when I actually need them)

Pocket Wizard N90M3 Nikon Motor Drive Cable (Connects Nikon camera bodies to a Pocket Wizard for remote firing)

Nikon MC-12B cable release

Black Diamond Icon headlamp (Lots of range and great for skiing down in the dark after shooting night shots up on the mountain)

Sync Cables

Lip Balm

AA Batteries

Extra memory cards

Gels for speedlights

Electrical tape (Almost as good as duct tape, but doesn’t leave a residue behind)

Battery tester

Rocket Blaster (Keep your lenses and image sensors clean!)

Burton AK powerstretch glove liners (best gloves for shooting in the cold, comfortable with good feel from 5 degrees F on up)

Fruit Leather, Cliff Shots, any other snacks

Aleve (Always good to have a few over the counter pain killers for rough days, and for athletes with rough landings)

PS3 controller (Most times when I’m shooting with Tom Wallisch, he makes really tech tricks look too easy so I’ll plug him into Amped 3 get him started on the next impossible trick)

Balsa wood plane (Sometimes shooting urban can get really really really slow after I’ve gotten all my shots I can get)
