Remote rafting photography

Remote rafting photography

When I first learned of this assignment, to photograph several groups of rafters in a remote location, I imagined several possibilities.  I imagined riding with some of the groups in the raft with a waterproof camera to capture some up-close action, then stationing myself somewhere along the line to photograph groups from the shore.  When I learned that the videographer from Tony Robbins would be up in a helicopter covering the groups, I was determined to find space on that helo.  Strapped in with a door open for the best access, I switched between a camera with a 70-200mm lens and one with a 120-300mm lens for a nice range of scenic and close up action.
