Tim Kemple: What's in the bag? As a child, photographer and film maker Tim Kemple spent his weekends documenting his adventures while climbing, skiing and wandering around the American East Coast. In our latest gear exploration, we look at how his collection of gear has grown since then. 05/27/2016 © Tim Kemple Is a cat is an essential part of any adventure photographer’s gear?“No, but it’s interesting how the addition of a cat makes the photo a little alive in a sea of non-organic gear isn’t it?”You’ve got 5 seconds to grab 3 pieces of gear - go!“My iPhone, a charging cable and an external battery. Because if there’s that much of a hurry, the story is so good that it doesn’t matter what I shoot on. And if I've got my phone I can share it right away.”Do you carry anything that no one else has? “Yeah a jar of special sauce that I sprinkle before I start shooting. It gives my photos that extra punch I think... Seriously though, I think I carry way more primes than most other photographers I know. Like I shoot exclusively on primes. A lot of them.”If you could add one item to your pack?“There is never any space left in any of my packs, just ask anyone whoever has assisted me. That said, if there is a bit of room I’ll probably try to squeeze in an extra strobe.”For more of Tim’s work, head to his website and Instagram.
