Eighty Pound Pack Landscape Photography


Welcome to Eighty Pound Pack and thank you for visiting. I’m Ben Hubbell, the photographer and Web designer whose work you see on these pages. This Web site gets its name from the fact that I like to carry an 80 pound backpack when I go on multi-week backpacking trips. One reason why my pack weighs so much is that I carry a 15 pound photo kit that includes 5 fixed-length lenses—zooms aren’t sharp enough for my tastes—and a full size Bogen tripod. The tripod weighs 4 pounds, but it’s necesarry because many of my photographs are taken during twilight; the darker half of magic hour.
