Lisa & Yonatan Do Africa

Make sure you select 720p HD for best quality when viewing. It was half way through my honeymoon when Lisa and I were talking with Mr. G., one of the resort managers, who had traveled the world for business and pleasure. Lisa said to him, "wow, you've been everywhere. If you had to pick one place in the world as your favorite, which would it be?" Without hesitation, he answered Southern Africa. As soon as we returned, we began dreaming about our next vacation and merely one year later, we realized this dream. Due to time constraints, we had to fit our trip into a two-week period including travel. This did not leave much time for relaxation, but it left a ton of time to experience Africa! Our trip included visits to Cape Town, South Africa and its suburbs, Chobe National Park in Botswana, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Jeeps, 40-seater propeller planes, boats, and helicopters, allowed us to experience this continent from many different perspectives. As a photographer, I spent many months planning for this trip. Figuring out what equipment to bring and what equipment to upgrade to. Knowing that it would be many years before having this opportunity again provided great incentive to get it right the first time. Although my camera never left my side, I made sure to put it down and pick up my binoculars or just take in the whole scene without a lens to magnify things. Upon returning home, I had over 4,500 photographs, quite a bit of high definition video, and many amazing memories to sift through. The challenge of putting together a photobook and this video began, and I'm happy to report that I am finally done. Nothing can substitute experiencing this part of world first hand, but I hope to bring you as close as possible as you view Africa through my lens.
