The equipment shown here was used on two three-month-long passion-fuelled assignments to document the remote corners of tropical islands in the Caribbean and in the Philippine Archipelago during the years 2012, 2013. In general I wanted to capture a wide variety of subjects but mostly natural landscapes and underwater fish and corals. As a background, I didn’t have insurance for my camera gear nor a big budget.I was traveling with limited finances and preferred to travel with locals, which meant often A) being in rugged conditions and B) going as light possible in order to avoid separating myself from my valuables (think carry-on luggage only).
Canon 17-40L F4
Dell Insprion 1545 [dual boot – windows for Lightroom and Photoshop and Ubunutu Linux for Itnernet (on sketchy Internet connections linux is likely less virus-malware prone)
With home made padded case (exterior fabric is VX-21 read below)
Western Digital Passport 1TB – Had two of these, one to contain media and one for backup.
Ipod touch – taking notes on the fly, and the occasional email when wifi was found
Dicapac WSP-5 Underwater case. Light, cheap, and pretty reliable.
Samsung Anycall – works well with a lot of countries sim cards, good battery life and pretty durable
Dolica b100 tripod – not the best, but got the job done.
Caselogic DSLR case
Julbo sunglasses in a hard case
Passport with extra pages
Wallet with a atm card and credit card plus additional photo IDs
Lock and Lock box (big) I cut up a wet suit and lined this box to give it some padding (some epoxy and sewing needed). This box is still working well, after some patching with epoxy. Pretty light/legit/cheap waterproofing.Put my camera and other electronics in this while taking smaller (and thus sketchier) inter-island ferries in Visayas.
Lock and Lock box (small) for storing hard drives (waterproof) Small home-made sleeve (red) and padding (gray)
Assorted cleaning stuff: microfiber clothes, dust brush, etc. Allen wrench for removing tripod quick release plate (found this screw to drift loose over time)
Home made 10stop ND filter. Made out of plywood, welding glass, 4 eye screws and some elastic cord. Makes fun photos, even though color information is useless (green glass ruins color data)
All goes in a 40L home made backpack. Made out of dimenson polyant sail cloth (VX-21). Water resistant.
Clothing (not pictured) all fits inside backpack
