Good travel photographers are creatures of habit. There are too many variables in the world, and maintaining a solid workflow is the best way to avoid silly mistakes. I once woke up, grabbed my bag and headed out for sunrise. When I went to take a picture, I realised I had left the camera back in my room! Now, every night on the road, I copy the day’s pictures to my laptop and back them up. I put batteries on to charge, clean cameras and lenses, put in a new blank memory card, check all my settings and pack my bag for the morning. I always travel with a laptop as I like to edit images on the road, as it gives me a good idea of how my work is going and helps me to isolate any technical issues and decide whether I need to reshoot anything. It also lets me file newsworthy images with agencies.
