I'm off to Namibia on September 19th to shoot landscapes in the desert. My guide is Greg du Toit, the 2013 Africa Photographer of the Year.
Due to a weight limit for the small airplane we will use to move about, in one duffel bag of 44 lbs for everything I'm taking:
Phase One XF, 3-100 megapixel back, 40-80mm, 75-150mm, and a 240mm with an extender. The 40-80mm and 75-150mm lenses are the latest Schneider blue rings.
Novoflex carbon tripod with an Induro pano head. One leg of the Novoflex tripod unscrews and becomes my monopod on which I'll use a RRS monopod head.
VU brand ND's straight and soft edge filters, along with Breakthrough Photography brand circ polarizers.
I've received countless vaccinations and have otherwise done a lot of homework preparing for this expedition.
Oh yes, Craghoppers brand mosquito repellent impregnated lightweight clothing, mosquito repellent for my exposed skin areas, and lots and lots of sunscreen!
More after I return home at the end of September.
