We recommend you have a DLSR camera with a wide angle lens such as any of the Canon EOS Nikon, Olympus, Sony range. A full frame DLSR camera is ideal but you can also start out with a cropped sensor DLSR to get into this lucrative area of photography. Mirrorless 4/3 cameras are also excellent.

At least one quality wide angle lens such as a 12-24mm for a cropped sensor DLSR. You could get away with an 18mm (such as the 18-55 Canon or 18-55 Nikkor) For a full framed DLSR, the 16-35mm wide angle zooms are perfect.

Memory Card(s): We recommend at least a 4 GB card for each 8 hour session of shooting

A sturdy tripod

Polarising filter and external flash unit
