We brought plenty of camera equipment, and needed all the help we could get to lug it through airports, on to airplanes, and out in the field. It took 4 people to accomplish this. Here they are in action. At the end of this page there is a list of the equipment we used.

Our Enthusiastic (and giggly) Film Crew in Action

To be able to fit all of this equipment, along with our clothes, in the back of Georgina’s land rover, we had to get a little cozy

Georgina in her element, with a big smile on her face because she is using Dr. P’s 400mm DO lens

Liana using the 1 DX with the 400mm DO to photograph the elephant seals

Liana was our plant expert, so we oftentimes found her in this position with one of the wide angle lenses
