I travel the world on assignment for National Geographic Traveler. Although I often have a translator who can also be my photo assistant, I still prefer to travel and shoot with as little equipment as possible; it keeps my mind focused on the subject, not which gadget or lens to pull out of my bag. I use everything I carry with me, except a few back-up items, which I leave in the hotel.
There is no better way to portray animals than at eye level. It’s true for birds but even more true for large mammals. One of the best parts of my yearly trip to lead photo safaris to Alaska, where we photograph Alaskan Brown Bears (also called Grizzly Bears), is that we can photograph them from the ground, at eye level.
