These photos and post were taken from Kyle Defoor’s Facebook page. Like I’ve said before, I’ve trained with Kyle and have been following him for several years now. Kyle has a lot of experience with most types of gear and clothing, especially when it comes to travel and shooting. I’ve adopted some of Kyles methods for minimizing what I take when I travel, whether it’s for 3 days in the US or a week overseas. Check out how Kyle uses a single backpack for a 3-day trip.
I’m asked often about traveling since it’s part of the job. Here’s as minimalist as can be done in the summer months for a three-day turn and burn with weather always a concern. – Kyle Defoor
