Photographer Neil DaCosta recently paired up with Deutsch NY and WaterIsLife to capture the lives of families in Ethiopia. The campaign is aimed at bringing awareness to the seriousness of water-related diseases in sub-Saharan Africa – where a loved one is at risk to die of such diseases every 20 seconds.

To help make the photo shoot possible, Neil took along our 17 Watt Kit to charge up his DSLR, MacBook, and DJI Phantom Drone. Here’s what Neil had to say about his experience:

“Earlier this year my friends at Deutsch NY took me along with them to Africa to shoot 2 projects for Water is Life.  In the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia there are limited options for charging cameras and computers and since I was shooting stills and video, I was chewing through batteries.  Luckily there is plenty of sun and I had a 17 Watt Voltaic kit to keep all my gear juiced.   Below are some behind the scene photos from the trip and here is a link to an article about the Water is Life project.”
