WAYNE, N.J. â€“ As a principal cinematographer on four episodes of the acclaimed National Geographic series, â€œGreat Migrations,â€? Bob Poole, www.poolefilms.com, captured intimate close-ups of Maliâ€™s desert elephants â€“ a remote and dangerous herd that were difficult to film. And in war-torn Southern Sudan, tense battles between male white-eared kob (antelopes) that often fight to the death for the right to breed. â€œGreat Migrationsâ€? is the largest endeavor in National Geographicâ€™s 122-year history, and Poole was provided the time and resources to capture images that otherwise would be impossible.
Poole used two Fujinon lenses to capture all of his â€œGreat Migrationsâ€? footage â€“ a HA25X11.5BERD HD lightweight telephoto lens and a HA13x4.5BRD HD wide angle ENG-Style lens. When the winds were particularly heavy, Poole often employed his TS-P58 image stabilizer from Fujinon.
