Phase One Photographer Guide

Planning and shooting remote locations

Why should you read a guide about how to plan and shoot remote locations?

Historically, landscape photography was the preserve of the large-format field camera, which required long treks with heavy equipment, making prior scouting of locations essential, and outstanding technique a virtual pre-requisite to avoid costly mistakes. Today, the smaller and lighter digital medium format cameras have made high resolution landscape photography accessible for active photographers trekking up the highest peaks and through the harshest of environments. Even with today’s technology, in order to get the most out of photographing a remote location and return with extraordinary images, tips from a photographer who has made a living with his images from such places is a great place to start. And that is why we have created this guide, in collaboration with travel and landscape photographer Andrew Ling.
