Dec 7th, “a date which will live in infamy”

They were high school juniors and seniors when they heard on the radio the attack on Pearl Harbor. Without hesitation they enlisted to serve their country. The “Greatest Generation” came together making the USA a life priority with many making the ultimate sacrifice. We owe all who served and paid the ultimate price for our freedoms, especially that day in Dec, 1941. They shall never be forgotten! Years back we wanted to understand that Sunday morning so we traveled to Pearl Harbor to fly the routes of that morning. This is the story of that flight. We’d been planning it for months, paperwork filed with official channels asking for permission, route and mission decided on, all was good to go! The time had come to put the flight in the air. It was a beautiful clear morning 15 March as we meet the team at the gate of the airport. The day before we’d all meet in Rob’s hangar and went over the flight we’d been planning for months....

My Workshop Gear at B&H

“What gear do I need for the workshop?” This is a common question so working with B&H, we have created pages with those answers. Moose Workshop Gear pages has the gear I suggest for wildlife, aviation and landscape photography. What’s really cool is as you look through them, you will see the gear that at that moment is at a special price. Creating the basic body and lens list was easy, getting all the accessories listed, now that’s what took time but you will find all of that here as well. And as I changed my suggestions, these pages will change. Hopefully this will help you plan how you want to grow your camera bag, with ideas and possibly...

Think Tank Airport Advantage Updated

Think Tank just released an “upsized” version of one of our most popular rolling camera bags, the Airport Advantage Plus. This is a bag I use a lot especially on aviation and landscape projects where space is precious. The new Airport Advantage Plus roller combines carryon size requirements with the lighter weight for which airlines are becoming more restrictive. I can easily pack 2 bodies, 5 lenses and accessories in it and the Advantage EASILY slips in the overhead of the smallest regional jet. I will post a my packing guide for it shortly, but this will give you some ideas on how I pack it. Now why do I use rollers when I have my own photopacks? The MP-1 V2 is the only bag I carry my 800mm in around the world. Because it fits in every overhead safeguarding my lens. There are other times knowing the aircraft I’ll be flying in, be it commercial or private, a stiff-sided roller simply won’t work. So like many of you,...
