This Filmmaker Captures a Grueling Desert Expedition Using Only Sony Mirrorless Cameras

Sony Alpha Universe catches up with Photographer and Filmmaker, Ryan Richardson, after his return from 8 weeks in the African Namib Desert.

The Trans Namibia Expedition took place in January and February of 2018. Adventurer and Ultra Runner Ray Zahab and fellow Ultra Runner Stefano Gregoretti both planned this expedition for over two years.


The Namib Desert is one of the most inhospitable places on the planet. This would be one of the most challenging desert objectives that’s ever been attempted. Zahab and Gregoretti worked with photographer and filmmaker Ryan Richardson to capture the beauty of the landscape, the suffering their bodies would inevitably endure, and the eventual success of achieving their goal.
