Packing for a New Zealand Photo Road Trip in Winter

August 11, 2019  •  1 Comment


In late June, I headed to New Zealand with my mom so that we could road trip across the southern island of New Zealand. The plan was to take photos along the way and teach my mom a little bit about photography along the way. We went at the end of June, so it was winter. The coldest it got was 22 degrees, ad the warmest was around 55 degrees. These are the things that we packed that we actually used and found helpful in the journey. We were in New Zealand for 11 days. We stayed in a hotel the first night and the last two nights, but the rest of the time we were in a campervan and staying at holiday parks.

Camera equipment:

     Myself

          Canon 5DsR

          Wide angle lens

          Telephoto

          50mm

     My Mom

         Canon 7D

         Wide Angle

         Zoom

Clothing:

     Long johns - only needed while not on the coast, and when shooting at night.

     Snow pants

     Hiking pants

     Pair of jeans

     5 long sleeve shirts

     2 sweaters

     A winter jacket with a detachable shell

     Hiking boots

     Wool socks

     A beanie

     A pair of shoes for the plane and walking around town if you don’t want to wear your hiking boots

     A scarf

     Gloves (but you can find cool wool ones almost anywhere)

Toiletries:

     Dry Shampoo ( I recommend camping shampoo instead, I picked some up along the way)

     Toothbrush and toothpaste

     I didn’t take a hairbrush because I wore a beanie the whole time

     Deodorant

     Bar of soap

If you are staying in a campervan like we did, I recommend packing as little as possible and in a small suitcase. You have limited space to store things.
