Default National Jamboree Photos

Hey all, As some of you know I am heavily involved with the Boy Scouts. This past July we had our National Jamboree with about 40,000 scouts in attendance. I had the privilege of being on the Staff Photography crew. There were 12 of us shooting for 2 weeks straight. Our photos are up on a Flickr account with a total of roughly 3.4 million page views during this 2 week period.


It goes backwards from "Day 10" to "Countdown to Jamboree". The photos, as you highlight them, with 12 in the code are mine. This is a new 10,000 acre permanent venue for the BSA. A spectacular place as you will see.

Nikon and Cannon lent us about $130,000 worth of lenses and camera bodies. So being a Nikon shooter I got to shoot a 500 f4 auto, 300 f2.8 and a 14-24 f4. Only about what $13,000 or more worth of glass. In addition to my own high end lenses. I shoot a D600 and a D90 with 70-200f.8, 24-120f4, 20-35 2.8 and others.

Hope you enjoy,
Greg Luer

Such an awesome lens. I just sold mine a few months back. Slight twinge of regret but it was the right thing to do.

When I was doing a lot of magazine work, I got to shoot the 1200/5.6. Pretty incredible piece of glass.

Very cool -- I think I may spend several hours looking at these and thinking about 2017.

Is this the work of beavers?
