How many lenses do you really need for landscape photography? I really believe that two lenses is enough for the vast majority of landscape photography, and that that, the less gear we haul up a mountain with us, the lighter we travel, the clearer our mind is to make images when we get to our destination.

In my latest video I look at what I think are the two essential lenses for shooting landscapes and why wide angle and telephoto lenses are what you need to make compelling images.

For this video I'm partnering with Squarespace. Now, sponsorships are something I’m generally quite wary of and I only really want to recommend something if I use it already in my photography, but with Squarespace I was happy to say yes when they approached me as I’ve been using them for on my own website (the one you’re reading this on) for a couple of years now. I’ve been really impressed by how easy it is to create a really nice looking website, and on the couple of occasions when there was something I wasn’t sure how to do, their customer support was superb.
