[Editor’s Note: Lily Girma is the first photographer-in-residence to participate in the Road Warrior program, a partnership between MatadorU and the Belize Tourism Board. Lily is spending the summer documenting the people of Belize as well as various adventure activities that can be enjoyed around the country. Each week, she reports on her experiences for Matador, her personal blog, and for other outlets.]
As a writer and photographer in Belize for the next three months, I have a little more gear to carry with me than most. But these are my essentials whenever I travel on assignment long-term.
Two Nikon SLRs
A D700 mounted with a 24-70mm Nikkor lens, and a D90 mounted with a 70-200mm VR Nikkor lens. However, I only carry one body every day. The second is a back-up camera.
