Camel Trophy Kalimantan '96

This was the first major expedition I did for Land Rover and effectively the start of my career as a freelance photographer back in 1996. I spent three weeks living out of a Discovery in the Bornean jungle, where the going was so hard that the convoy only managed 500 miles in the first two weeks. Right there I decided that this would be an excellent way to earn a living.
