Wildlife Photography - My Passage To India

I am off to India for a wildlife photo shoot. Will be visiting a few Indian Rhino, Elephant and Tiger reserves and doing some travel photography as well. Modes of transportation include jeeps and elephants looking for Tigers, Rhinos, Elephants plus small boats photographing Gharials, a fish eating crocodile native to the Indian sub-continent. This adds another level of experience to an exciting safari journey in Incredible India. 

Bringing and testing 3 pieces of new Canon gear extensively again - EOS-7D Mk II , EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lenses.  In addition, I will be bringing the old favorites - EOS-1D X , EOS-1D Mk IV and EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x Extender lens.

My Indian friend informed me recently there is an upgrade in the count of Tigers in the national parks. Looking forward to finding out more about how these magnificent animals are fighting to avoid the relentless slaughter from poachers and smugglers with the help of the National Tiger Conservation Authority. It will be difficult for me to keep in touch because there are few Internet access in the jungles and countryside but I will do my best. Have to wait till I return in mid March to reconnect and write my blog again.

In the meantime, visit my website to see photos and read stories from my previous wildlife trips around the globe. Wish me luck on my trip. My Southern Oceans photo shoot last month was just average. I need a break to get some spectacular sightings and encounters.
