Thanks for this opportunity to talk about something that is very passionate to me, winter photography.
Let me start out by saying one of my favorite places to visit in winter is Blackwater Falls in West Virginia. It’s a great place to shoot in the winter due to it being located in a microclimate which receives a tremendous amount of snow when many others areas have nothing.
When spending time in the outdoors, especially in snowy wet conditions, I feel confident that my equipment is protected from the elements when I use my Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW. The bag is sealed very well with water-resistant zippers and has a great rain/snow cover built in. The bag is also very comfortable to carry when hiking or traversing uneven or snowy ground. It’s roomy enough to carry all the equipment that I need while on a shoot.
Apparently I’m not the only one that regards this bag as an excellent outdoor bag. Here’s an image of one of my clients also using the Pro Trekker 400 AW, too.
Best of light,
