I miss being underwater. The feeling of blissfully escaping the world and all it’s problems as you slow your heart rate and focus on your breath. It feels like a lifetime ago when we were in Borneo, exploring some of the most beautiful underwater habitats in the world. For example this pond filled with crystal clear spring water. I’m going to post a ‘memories from Borneo’ story soon. Go to my stories to check it out.
When you travel, certain moments stand out more than others. Moments that make you take a step back to ask yourself “did that really happen?”. This was the feeling after finally conquering the peak of rainbow mountain with @samkolder @jbxcreative and @killaexpeditions . Because of the altitude, every step was exhausting, each excited movement had a purpose. Before the sun came up it was well below 0°C. As the early morning light hit the side of the mountain, the famous colours got brighter, and the stunning rainbow mountain lay in front of us.
Every morning in Alor looked like this. As the sun rose, the wet jungle began to dry and the water evaporated, creating a thin layer of fog below us. Perfect for sunbeams.
Yesterday the sun decided to poke through the clouds over Bowen island. For a brief few minutes, it was sunny and rainy at the same time... which means there’s going to be a rainbow... I didn’t have my camera unfortunately as I ran down to the dock and took this shot on my iPhone. @chasejarvis says the best camera is the one that’s with you and I fully agree. Bowen’s little ferry lined up perfectly with the rainbow to create this surreal moment. #shotoniphone
All alone in paradise. Found these shots back in the archives from when @parisverra and I went to the Seychelles for a week. We spent our days biking around the island, exploring the unique rock formations, and eating picnics on the beach. The Seychelles also have giant fruit bats flying around everywhere and coconut crabs the size of garbage can lids. Google it.
Such a perfect spot between the jagged cliffs that define this area of the Philippines. The boardwalks and tree-houses connecting the lagoons make for a perfect place to explore. Make sure you get here early so you have the whole place to yourselves : )
Currently jealous of my Hawaiian friends who get to ‘social distance’ in this paradise. I’ll be coming over soon for some much needed diving, hiking and poke bowls.
One of the many highlights of trekking through the Andes, are the endless herds of alpacas. These guys stop to check you out as you walk past them in an awkward standoff kind-of way. (First photo ) The one on the left isn’t actually brown, he fell in the mud up to his neck 😂
3 years ago, @jordhammond @conormccann and I went to some of the most picturesque rice terraces in Bali for sunrise. We had the entire place to ourselves along with perfect conditions. Going back to this spot now is a very different experience... on our way out we found probably the biggest spider I’ve ever seen.
We explored this fairytale town in Bosnia Herzegovina as the sun was setting. We took a boat up the river and ate lunch overlooking the postcard view. Bosnia Herzegovina reminded me a bit of Turkey because of the influence of the Ottoman Empire. There’s so much cool history in this part of the world, and once you learn about it, you can see real world examples as you travel.
The most chaotic 24 hours of travel lead @jacob and I to this helicopter ride over New York during sunset. We missed our flight from LA to Abu Dhabi so we had to improvise. We found a last minute flight that would get us there a day late which was better than nothing. The new flight path had a 15 hour layover in NY. We called up @tomjauncey and he met up with us for an epic day of exploring. Somehow he managed to set up this heli shoot with only a few hours notice. The next morning, Jacob and I woke up in Abu Dhabi and went skydiving. Such a non-stop adventure.
It doesn’t get much more beautiful than this. We got here at sunrise and had the whole lagoon to ourselves. There was crystal clear water and a super cool underwater tunnel to swim through.
Easily one of the craziest shoots I’ve been a part of. The precise flying required to line up two helicopters in just the right spot over the blue hole was incredible. Meanwhile I was hanging out of the door the whole time.
I took this shot right before my camera died last night. It’s crazy how many times you can prepare for a photoshoot and still forget the most basic/important part- the camera battery. Being in lockdown on a little island has its ups and downs. The beautiful scenery is definitely a huge perk.
Nothing comes much closer to a fairytale than this. I never posted this because I wasn’t sure if the dress was ‘cheesy’ or not. Now, going back through my old footage I’ve decided to revisit this shot and see what you guys think of it.
One of the most blissful experiences. After a 3 hour bus ride and a 4 hour boat ride, we made it to a reef out in the middle of the Red Sea. This reef provides protection from predators for dolphins. As the pod swam past, I went down and joined them. They were completely chill about it.
A perfect day spent at this little sauna up in the alpine. Jump in the freezing glacier-fed lake, warm up in the sauna, and repeat. All day long. This would be a perfect spot for a quarantine getaway.
Currently dreaming of a California road trip. I took these while camping in the beautiful Alabama Hills a few years back. The first shot is a composite of 3 different exposures- one shot to expose for the fire, one to expose for the stars, and one to expose for the shadows.
Golden hour in Cappadocia is pretty much unbeatable. Not many places feel as magical as this.

“Against the blackness of space, a sparkling blue orb teems with life and energy. The land masses shift, the oceans swell, and clouds erupt in electric displays of power. We don’t always see it — but we feel it.” - @Nasa I’m a day late for celebrating Earth Day, but honestly every day should be Earth Day. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have experienced some uniquely stunning displays of nature on my travels. Here are some of my absolute favourites. The last pic is of me, fully absorbed in the moment during a sunrise rainstorm in East Borneo earlier this year. It’s little moments like these that make you feel more connected than ever to our beautiful planet we get to call home.

Every time I visit Dubai it feels like stepping into the future. I half expect flying cars to be navigating through the enormous buildings. At the centre of the city is the Burj Khalifa- the worlds tallest building.
