The Best Photography and Tech Gear for Travel

A Look Inside Nastasia's Travel Photography Gear

Easily the question I get most often as a full-time traveler and photographer is what gear I use and what I’d recommend most. So, today I wanted to share an inside look at my stand-by travel photography gear!

​​​​​​​Truth be told, I’m a pretty minimal, no-frills photographer. I believe in investing in quality gear that does the job over have every gadget under the sun. So, the items you’ll see in this list are those that choose to carry with me – they’re sturdy and absolutely reliable.

Express VPN

From airports to hotels to public wifi hotspots, many of us use public wifi when we’re on the road to save data but all of this comes with a price. One of the best ways to protect yourself from cyberattacks is to use a VPN. We love ExpressVPN as it’s super user friendly and we can use it on multiple devices. A VPN not only keeps your data private and secure, it allows you to access apps and streaming services that may not be accessible in certain parts of the world.

For Beginners: Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Camera

This is my favorite camera ever. It was my very first camera when I started travel blogging and I still use it from time to time. It’s discreet and super light weight but takes incredibly sharp and beautiful photos. Small but mighty! I highly recommend this as a beginner camera as it’s also easy to use and you can change out the lenses.

Sony a7R III Mirrorless Camera

For more advanced photographers, I love the Sony a7R III Mirrorless Camera which is a bit on the pricey end but a great investment if your skills are a bit more advanced and you’re using it professionally. It eventually pays for itself!


Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS E-Mount Lens

I’ve been using this zoom lens a ton lately because I got tired of carrying so many lenses and having to constantly change them out. The zoom is super crisp and is great for street photography and landscapes.


DJI Mavic Mini Drone

This mini-drone by DJI is everything! It’s a tiny wonder that is super lightweight and easy to pay but packs a serious punch in terms of flight control, and simplified flying experience. It’s the perfect drone for beginners. Given the precious space my backpack is, I’m super grateful for its small and compact size!


DJI Mavic Mini

Fujifilm instax Mini Instant Camera

Such a fun and easy way to create nostalgic and vintage looking photos in an instant! I love the Fujifilm instax Mini Instant Camera as it comes in many colors, the price point is reasonable and it’s lightweight.

Power Bank

This power bank for your phone is a game changer simply because I love how reliable it is in all circumstances! It has a super fast charge, it only takes 25 minutes to charge your iPhone 13 from 20% to 68%  Its two USB ports on the side allow me to charge other stuff all at once. Plus, it’s slim and easy slides right into my bag!

Zagg InvisibleSHIELD iPhone Screen Protector

Speaking of protection, having a great tempered glass screen protector for your phone is a must. Knowing that if you accidentally drop your phone won’t result in a serious headache feelings amazing. I love this one by Zagg for iPhone because its slim but sturdy, 100% clear and bubble free.

Slim and Chic Laptop Sleeve that Doubles as a Pad

I love this simple laptop sleeve for its reliability and chic details that comes in many beautiful colors. It’s also quite slim so it doubles as a pad.


Adjustable Cell Phone Stand

I love this hands free cell phone stand that’s easy to store and travel with and most importantly, gives your hands and fingers a break!

Handheld Vlogging Smartphone Video Stabilizer

I love using this DJI Handheld Gimbal to capture super smooth videos while I’m out and about. The gimbal gives your videos a high quality, cinematic effect and it’s super lightweight, easy to carry. Just snap it onto the magnetic attachment to your phone and you’re good to go!



I hope you all enjoyed an inside look at my travel photography gear! If you have any other questions about gear, don’t be shy. I’d love to help!
