In September 2013 I travelled to the Naboisho Conservancy in Kenya with Hawkshead Photography as part of a 7 day photography expedition.
For the first time i used my Nikon D800E along with a Nikon 200-400mm F4 lens. The set up was intended to give me some flexibility and composition control as opposed to using a fixed prime telephoto lens as I do with military jets. I rented the lens from lensesforhire.com
I was also shooting video using the Panasonic x920 mounted on the Bushhawk. GoProHD was also used for the internal flights and whilst traveling in the vehicles. I shoot GB’s of video with most of it being unusable but I have got some nice clips and the video will follow shortly.
Photos will be posted soon

Well, its been a tough winter and spring has been slow to start. With a forecast of dry and settled weather I set off for Wales for a few days jet hunting. Here are the best shots from the trip which saw me do 7 locations in 4 days. Thats about 43 hours spent on location out of a possible 96, oh and 650 plus miles drive too.
