As we all know, the weight of our luggage and travel gear has become a big issue when packing. With baggage fees tacked on, it can be quite expensive.  Elaine Masters is an avid photographer, videographer and travel writer.  She has created a step-by-step guide on her best practices when packing for a trip. What to bring, what is essential and what can just be left at home. We all want to bring the gear, the lenses, lights and memory cards. But what are the “must haves”.  Also, what to carry on vs. pack in the suitcase?  There is a wealth of information and tips on just how to navigate this process. Thanks Elaine for sharing your tips today at our professional development conference. For those who could not attend the 2019 Conference, here are some of Elaine's tips and strategies.
