When most of us go out into the wild and try to capture the experience on camera, we come home with photos that come up just short — and sometimes one fewer piece of working gear. When California-based photographer Chris Burkard does it, he comes back with epic images that go pound-for-pound with Mother Nature’s own brush. This is the gear he used (and descriptions of why he used it) while shooting photos in the Oregon wilderness, where he encountered harsh Pacific Northwest weather en route to Crater Lake, Smith Rock and Columbia River Gorge.
