And don't you dare laugh!
« on: October 21, 2016, 18:00:14 »
The first video of my visit to a game reserve with Mark Wallace from AdoramaTv and CreativeLive
And please don't laugh as I look like a dork. Ask Bjørn - I am not a dork. Truly.

Elsa , you are not a dork but he is, especially for his American pronunciation of the Nikon name. You definitely look embarrassed though!

Mark's red t-shirt is a no-no!  Muted colours for safari, please.

And blue (e.g. jeans) attracts tsetse flies, maybe not a problem in SA.

I can confirm Elsa is NOT a dork.

There. Triple confirmation. The matter is settled.

Elsa is in fact a very nice person and fun to travel together with.

I did laugh when Mark kept insisting on the tripod and you told him that animal move and handheld is easier ...

ya these kids thinking you can use a prime and a tripod in the field  ;D
One must understand - he had NO clue what to expect and this was a whole new experience for him.
I simply could not prepare him for what was waiting - which was a good thing.
He absolutely loved the intimate experience

Elsa, you are not a dork, but Mark likes to talk, but very little information ::)
Some nice footage of the animals, remind me that it is a long tine since I was in Kruger Park with my Nikkormat 8)

Make no mistake - the Leica impressed me plenty. And traveling with everything you own on a bike - is not half as romantic as it sounds. Space is at a premium - and he packs his Leica, Profoto studio light, battery pack, video light, Lumix for video and his clothes.
The videos have to be very short for Adorama, so that is very difficult. He had to cut a lot of footage we shot.
thank you guys for looking. I wasnt nervous - just felt exceptionally awkward - at least here I had something to say - but in other footage I stood there with my mouth full of teeth. I am hoping to get good exposure - but there are no guarantees in this world.
He was a very nice guy to meet, and I hope to have more photographers visiting me! it is so much fun sharing South Africa with other people - especially when they have NO idea what to expect. Mark thought Cape Town was just a place to land his bike of the plain, and drive onwards. Ended up staying more than 2 weeks
