With the way things are, I’m unlikely to go on a hiking photography trip anytime soon. The last thing I want is to be on a train for 2+ hours with someone sitting next to me in the middle of a pandemic. On top of that, hiking has become way more popular. One of my favorite trails got super crowded. I started hiking because all the crowds in NY were starting to get on my nerves. Hiking on a packed trail kinda defeats the purpose.
Right now, I can only take short trips through my park. I sometimes get good photos but it doesn’t compare to hiking in the mountains. While I can’t hike, I can research to level up my skills. Here are some good YouTube Channels. Most of these focus on hiking. But, Thomas Heaton has a playlist of his hiking photography trips.

This technically isn’t a hiking or photography channel but these two live in a camper off-the-grid. A lot of the things they talk about could help you on your hiking trip.
Do you want to take better nature photos on your hiking trip? I wrote a post about that. How to Take Beautiful Hiking Photos on Your Next Trip. Next up, I’ll be looking up books. It’ll also be interesting to see if I can learn how to identify certain plants in the wild.
