You're not shooting the wedding, so leave your fashion sense at home. For the nature photographer, it's not about how you look, but how to stay alive. Dress for the environment. Selecting the right clothes is just as important as choosing the right lens. If you’re photographing a hawk owl on a -17˚day and you have the wrong gloves and the wrong shoes, you'll be more concerned about survival than photography. Dress smart because the right clothes makes photography in extreme places possible.
