Know Before You Go
Dress according to the weather as you tend to spend most of the two hours outside. For the evening walks please bring a tripod. For all walks, make sure your batteries are fully charged or that you have a spare, and that your memory cards have sufficient room on them to shoot. If you aren't that familiar with your camera, consider bringing a manual in case we need to make adjustments while on the walk.
If you're lucky enough to have many lenses, you are welcome to bring what you please. Most people have kit lenses and these are fine. Many people enquire as to which lens they should bring, the usual answer is as many as you feel like carrying. My recommended lens is an 18-200 (if you haven't bought your camera yet) due to the range in focal lengths it provides.
