The fierce lions, the sultry leopards, all make for fantastic photography but sometimes it's the quiet moments that take you away;

Very nice series, CDS. I laughed a bit while looking at the last one. ;)

Africa - only in my dreams! Beautiful series there, Jake. Curious about how much gear you dragged over there, and how you packed it for the trip.

Africa - only in my dreams! Beautiful series there, Jake. Curious about how much gear you dragged over there, and how you packed it for the trip.

It was my first trip of this sort, (this was 2007) and I definitely "over-packed" but not by too much in the photo gear dept.

How I packed I learned from a photojournalist, and I've used it ever since quote successfully.

I pack all my "can't live without it" photo gear in a standard rolling luggage of the correct dimensions for overhead carry on luggage.

The 500mm gets strapped to the internal rails that run through the back of the luggage for the collapsible handle. (in my case the "straps" were my optech shoulder straps)
Around the 500mm is the rest, in this case it was 3 bodies (1D3, 1D2, and InfraRed converted D60)
100-400mm, 135mm 17-40mm, t-cons battereis etc, All wrapped in t-shirts, boxer shorts and socks for padding and for emergency clothing if checked bag gets lost (it did)

i did essentially the same arrangement many times since including nearly exactly the above for the Galapagos. Since then I have replaced bodies, no longer need to lug around ridiculously heavy and large 1D2 and batteries! (those NiMH are huge! and the charger!?)

What I packed that I should not have, 70-200mm, 24-70mm each got used only for moments at a time. I would have been fine with 135mm only, and some tiny primes for wide/medium low light.

Standard set up for shooting in the bakkie, 500mm on 1D3, 100-400mm on 1D2, 17-40mm on IR, and swap the 17-40mm when needed for color landscape etc..

Love every one of these Jake - but have to say the last is my favourite.

Thanks for sharing your packing strategy - makes a lot of sense.

I'm glad you started this thread, Jake, as it's always wonderful to see your images from Africa. Beautiful work!
Will you be going again some day, you think?

Thank you!

I do hope to go again, more and more.

The plan was to go for a honeymoon,. but a few months before our wedding we took in a foster daughter, whom we then adopted. The honeymoon has yet to happen 3 years later :)
