I'm clearly a terrible blogger. Months have gone by since my last post. In part, that is because very little is going on from a photographic perspective. I've never been one of those photograph-every-day kind of artists. Instead, I have long intense bursts of activity, which sate me for months on end.
One of those busy times is coming up. In less than three weeks, I leave for a two week trip to Kenya. I will be hosting a couple who are celebrating their 10th anniversary. I was lucky to be with them when they married on the South Pacific island of Palau - alongside Jeff Probst and the cast of Survivor Palau (just by chance, but what a great wedding story). Back then, I photographed both underwater and on land and presented them with a book to remember the trip. Don't tell them, but I'll do it again this trip!
I have packed, repacked, cleaned and organized my equipment many times in anticipation of this trip. I have made a shot list and have studied other photographers' work, as well as brutally assessed my own. But no matter how much I plan, wildlife photography always presents exciting surprises, and I cannot wait until I find out what those are.
There will be lots of elephants on this trip, so I leave you with a sweet baby.....
