I’m very excited to be traveling to South America for the first time in May. Sydney to Peru via Santiago, Chile. Continue reading
I’m not a fan of the standard camera bags you can buy everywhere these days. They are either cheap and ugly or trendy and expensive and they all scream “Camera gear – Steal me!” I thought I’d make a DIY padded camera insert for my gear so it could go in any bag I happened to be using at the time.

Igor Cunha is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt who trains and teaches out of Nova Forca BJJ, Perth WA. I was motivated to highlight Igor by the way he carried himself at the Aus Cup on the weekend and the enthusiasm and thanks he showed towards me for capturing his win.

So all the more thankful for someone as skilled as Mr Everlook to let us look under his hood.
