Captain’s Log-8 March 2016-Gorilla Family and Me

Flying with Gordan Buckanan on shots for Gorilla Family and Me.

Flying with Gordan Buckanan for “Gorilla Family and Me”.  Smile, he’s taking your picture.

Last year I flew Gordon Buchanon and a BBC film crew into Kahuzi-Biega National Park in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo to shoot a series on a gorilla family there. It is always great to meet these guys who are very gifted at capturing the hidden life of animals that people just don’t usually get the chance to see. We had the crew up at our house for a nice evening under the stars and supper with friends. We did some aerial photography the next day and managed to get some great shots of the plane in the process.

The clips I have seen on line of the show on BBC Two are amazing and I can’t want to see the rest of the series. It really captures some of the beauty of Congo. You should check it out.

The team recently came back for a few more shots in the park and they shared a few pix of the plane with me. I like them. What do you think?

  3. Great shots, Jon! We’ve enjoyed your pictures from the plane, in the plane, and on the ground near the plane. It’s wonderful to get this new perspective.
