Photographer Steve McCurry Explains How to Pack Your Suitcase for an Assignment

We never thought we’d write that headline, but thanks to Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey you can now learn how to best pack your bags for an assignment from the one and only Steve McCurry — the iconic Nat Geo photographer behind the Afghan Girl photograph.

This particular video is number 5 in a series of tip videos that Harvey is putting together for budding photographers and Burn magazine readers who want to learn from the best, and it actually came together entirely by accident.

Harvey ran into long-time friend McCurry while shooting in Dubai, and since there wasn’t time to do a full interview, they instead covered how to best pack your bags… something McCurry is particularly good at.
