In my last post, I talked about our recent African safari trip. As a photographer, I was packing a lot of gear for a trip like that, including some long lenses. Big glass can be hard to manage for long periods of time, but there’s one piece of gear that proved to be essential while out in the field.

Journeys Unforgettable (the excellent company we traveled with) knew that shooting with big glass would be a challenge on the Land Rovers we were out in for our game drives. Because of this, they provided Wimberley heads with a custom mount for the vehicles.

In the following video, I demonstrate the use of this essential item while out on safari in Botswana.
