Simon’s WPPi video diary : Day one!

| March 8, 2013

Tomorrow I leave for the other side of the world! When I asked Google Maps it told me 23,169km… Then I saw where it wanted me to go – including sailing across a couple of oceans etc… Funny…

Yeah, so, err… I won’t sail, i’ll fly and I shall fly with my thinkTank bags held high! –Well, not so high as to draw unwanted “ground crew” attention to myself, though I’ve packed quite weight-frugally… (Is that even a word?) I am using the Airport Security V2.0 with the dividers all removed for clothes and my tripod, then I have my Airport Airstream (which once belonged to Sue Bryce, true story!) which has my MK3 and the 70-200 and some other bits and pieces in it and then I have my Retrospective 7 which has my Oly OM-D, my headphones (They’re BIG ok!) and my iPad, wallet and passport stuff… I’m breaking things up because at the show I want to be able to carry stuff, but not have a roller with me, I don’t want to have a super heavy bag whilst I’m searching around the tradeshow floor for likely candidates of free stuff now, do I… ;)

So, I’ve started a video diary - I’m no camera man and I’m using my trusty GoPro, but I have plugged in my very sweet RODE lav mic so that at least you can HEAR my Aussie accent. They’re going to be pretty raw and fun.

So, enough of my rambling, here’s episode (epicsode!) one which I’ve entitled; “Best get packing”

Tomorrow, we’re off to the airport to head YOUR way!…

Until then….

Sime
