In six days I leave for Ethiopia. Each time I go to Africa, I have to reassess what I’m carrying with me. Did I use it last time? How much use was it to me? Is there something better I could be using next time?This is my tenth trip to Africa in less than seven years. I’m a missionary, and on most trips (though not this one) my primary purpose is documentation. You may have other reasons for shooting, but the basic equipment list will be the same, except for the choice of lenses. Over... continue reading

Last week I took a family vacation up north for a cruise to Alaska; and as usual, I took advantage of the opportunity to take photos of new places. The trip took us first to Seattle where we boarded our boat and then to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria in British Columbia. It was an amazing trip.Besides the family fun and quality time, these places offer unique photographic opportunities; from the urban cityscapes of downtown Seattle, the rugged wilderness of Alaska and the... continue reading

It lies some 240 kilometers (150 mi) east of the Horn of Africa and 380 kilometers (240 mi) south of the Arabian Peninsula.The landscape of remote Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film but in fact has evolved to look so other-worldly as the'lost world' island has been separated from mainland Africa for between six and seven million years. It is one of the... continue reading
