You'll benefit the most from this landscape workshop if you'll bring a wide angle and/or a medium length lens with you. A tripod is especially handy for sunset and sunrise photography. Comfortable, sturdy hiking boots and hiking clothes are important as you'll be hiking to various shooting locations. A warm jacket, warm hat and gloves are essential for staying comfortable while waiting for the sun to rise at higher elevations in October. Please see details below in "Further Details" regarding fitness level.
