It’s weird when you’re snorkelling and suddenly a rock turns into a cuttlefish and swims away 😅 I shot this in Indonesia last month where the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean meet. This creates huge currents and a mashup of sea creatures all in one spot. At one point free-diving, we had 3 or 4 different species of shark swimming around us. Shot on the Canon 1DXii
Dreaming of these crystal clear waters in the Philippines. @chelseakauai and I spent the afternoon freediving in this beautiful lake. This spot was so stunning that I couldn’t contain myself. One of the the videos that I found from here was just me freaking out with excitement. Maybe I’ll share that one with you guys later : )
An incredible day spent at this little sauna on the lake. Apparently our crew broke the record for most jumps in one day (probably 30 each 😅🥶 ). The glacial-fed water was freezing which contrasted perfectly with the super hot sauna. Who’s down to come back? @whitecap
And just like that, the first annual @triplit conference has come to a close. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of amazing people to take part and focus all their energy on creating a positive impact through social media. I took this photo a few days ago during the conference and just found some time to edit it : )
We spent the afternoon at Atlantis sand dunes. On the horizon is Table mountain- one of the new 7 wonders of the world. Today is the last day of the @triplit conference and I couldn’t have asked for a better week with such an amazing group of people.
This was probably one of the worst days of weather I’ve ever tried shooting in. The wind was insane, the rain was blowing in our face so hard that it stung, and wet sand got everywhere. What better place to wear a dress? @rachienoe is a little crazy.
We waited for the perfect timing with the sun shining through the trees. It created a spotlight on the ground right in front of the waterfall. The locals loved showing us the way to this secret spot hidden below their village, so we managed to pick up an extra 15 or so excited locals on the way down.
We spent the night in the clouds at Wae Rebo village. The cloud/fog was thin enough to create these insane light beams from the hut’s lantern. These local guys were stoked to pose like super hero’s for the shot. I had to do 2 separate exposures- one for the hut with the light on, then one for the misty stars without the light.
We came up with this concept and told the captain. He said we had 5 minutes to nail it before the crew had to take down the sails. @josiahwg and I jumped in the water with the 1Dxii and started shooting. Rushed underwater shoots are probably the most exhausting/challenging of all. This is the best we got in a single exposure. Shot with a dome port + a 14mm lens at f/8 (unfortunately Josiah is still out of focus ).
On our 3rd day in Komodo, we stopped at one of the many pink beaches this park is so famous for. The nearby coral is bright red which slowly gets ground up and ultimately ends up as red sand. When you mix this red coral sand with the white rock sand, you get pink 👍🏼 Check my story to see how I took this shot! @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia
@josiahwg and I decided to leave on a photo mission at 11:30pm from our boat. We did a short hike and got on top of this hill. The Milky Way was insane and we stayed up there until 2:30am. This was the first photo we took, and probably the best one. I’ll post a before and after photo on my story in the morning because this almost looks fake, but for now it’s back to stargazing on the roof of our boat ✨ Shot on the Canon 1Dxii with a 20mm f/1.4 lens. 15 second exposure, 2000 ISO. @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia
Perfectly clear water surrounding one of the many beautiful islands here in Komodo National Park. It’ll be interesting shooting the rest of this trip without my drone because it came to a very violent end this evening as I crashed it into the mast of our boat... @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia
Today we woke up at sunrise and began a long drive across the island in hopes of finding this waterfall. After about 2 hours on a bumpy, mostly dirt road, we reached a village. The villagers immediately took charge and led the way. We had an entourage of about 20 locals eager to show us the magical spot. Shot on the Canon 1DxII with a 14mm lens. This is a 5 photo vertical panorama- necessary in order to get the whole tree in the shot. Edited with the ‘Monday Updated’ preset from my new Master Collection.
