Greetings from the Sierras! Its beautiful up here.
Connor, thanks for the great question. Cameras are great, and if you are interested in documenting our journey together this summer, please feel free to bring a camera along. We have lots of students who bring cameras, of all shapes and sizes, on our programs. Many then go on to do things like a photojournalism project on course, which can be really amazing.
As for what kind of camera you bring, that would be an individual decision. To my mind, I would think about durability, size and weight, and cost. In other words, I wouldn’t want to bring something very fragile, large, or heavy, and I wouldn’t invest in something super expensive that I didn’t already have prior to the program. We do often have students bring light/small DSLR’s, but we also have students who bring smaller point and shoot cameras.
If anyone else has any thoughts (students!) feel free to put up a response!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon
