“When you go out in the woods today your sure for a big surprise”. Turns out this song is translatable and can apply beyond bears and forests. Rhino trekking on foot. It’s a real thing. Also turns out these huge creatures have terrible sight but as long as you go slow you can approach them. Also explains their vulnerability. This was an experience. Thanks to the team @amalindalodge Zimbabwe for their expertise, patience and calm demeanour. We encountered this mama and her kiddo and got to bask in their presence. mylpguide #roamtheplanet #globeshotz #visuallife #adventureculture #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #lensbible #nature #earthofficial #earthpix #nikon #traveldeeper #zimbabwe #traveltheworld #travelgram #lonelyplanet #ourdailyplanet #rhinotrust #awesome_earthpix #earthfocus #visualscollective #artofvisuals #discoverearth #nakedplanet #createcommune #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet
I felt like I’d hit the jackpot when I took this picture - the Ellies were looking right at me and the sunlight was at the perfect angle. I was there sitting in the safari car just lucky to be part of it all. The elephants in Zimbabwe were huge!! #mylpguide #roamtheplanet #globeshotz #visuallife #adventureculture #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #lensbible #nature #earthofficial #earthpix #nikon #traveldeeper #victoriafalls #traveltheworld #travelgram #lonelyplanet #ourdailyplanet #awesome_earthpix #earthfocus #visualscollective #artofvisuals #discoverearth #nakedplanet #createcommune #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet
Sometimes a face says it all. I am fairly confident this is the face on the edge of bringing your dance move A-Game because that is literally what happened next.

It’s Friday so yes, rainbows are appropriate. It’s been nice sharing some images of travels this week. This is Zimbabwe—I can’t believe I was able to travel there but here is the proof. Taken at the mighty Victoria Falls. #tlpicks #travel #traveladdict #lonelyplanet #mylpguide #travelholic #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #intoafrica #zimbabwe #vicfalls #photooftheday #earth_shotz #eclectic_shotz #lensbible #hubsplanet #photooftheday #nature #planetearth #travelinggram #bucketlist #hubs_united #culturetrip #shotzdelight
All Eyes on Me! This year I was fortunate enough to have my wife meet me in Zambia after I was done my assignment. What a magical place. The river, the sunsets and the people. The number of hippos in the river was startling - a little scary but mostly impressive. Also - the sunsets at the end of the rainy season made for some epic shots. A VERY late posting but thanks so much to the team @royalzambezi for making this amazing experience happen. More shots to come! #wildlifeplanet #beautifuldestinations #lonelyplanet #roamtheplanet #lensbible #zambeziriver #InToAfrica #magnumphotoawards #wildlifeplanet #passionpassport #traveldeeper #traveladdict #destinationearth #exceptional_pictures #earthguide #mylpguide #theIMAGED #CreateExplore #natgeotravel #bbcearth #hubs_united #aov #zambia #globevisuals #tlpicks #greatoutdoors #earthfocus #letsgosomewhere #photooftheday #eclectic_shotz #nature
The part of my job I love most when photographing is the chance to hear the stories of the people I meet. The challenge is how to portray people, their stories and their lives, in a way that I can get you, the causal Instagram user, to connect to them. This woman survived the destruction of her home when a large tree fell during a cyclone in Mozambique. Blind, trapped and scared, she crawled across her crushed hone through the debris, and emerged unscathed. Pretty brave, pretty inspiring. While her house was lost, her spirit was not. With a little assistance and a little time she rebuilt her home a little bit stronger, and her life a little more resilient than before. #mozambique #exceptional_pictures #portraitphotography #bnwphotography #bnw_captures #bnwportrait #ngo #africa #roam #master_pics #bnwphotography #bbcearth #lensculture #exceptional_pictures #exploretocreate #createcommune #destinationearth #afarmedia #bnw_planet_2018 #theimaged #bnw_planet #bbw_insta #humanity_shots_ #bnw_magic #bnwsouls #aov
While on a shoot in Kenya it was too dark for me to photograph in the women's co-op we were documenting, but when I stepped outside to get some night air, here was the most perfect scene of light and colour and normalcy waiting for me to capture. - #passionpassport #aov #agameoftones #portrait #traveldeeper #thetravellersedition #Kenya #lonelyplanet #culturetrip #natgeotravel #bbcearth #magnumphotoawards #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #TLPicks #theIMAGED #soft_earth #destinationearth #exceptional_pictures #visualseduction #CreateExplore #visualcreators #lifeofjoel #depthobsessed #earthguide #afarmedia #ngo #theIMAGED #moodygrams #heatercentral #thevisualgrams #ngo
We (North Americans) spend a lot of money on our homes. Not just the cost of buying, but all the stuff we think we need to add. The constant upgrades and additions. It’s never enough. There’s always more that people want. This is Kiberia - on the outskirts of Kenya. Peoples wants are much different. Running water, proper sewage, a roof that doesn’t leak, four walls that connect safely. The contrast of have and have not is so clearly illustrated here. I wonder if people with wealth who have a bit more could understood that they could do with a bit less...... - #ngo #lenscultureportraits #lensculture #portrait #resilience #behindthelens #instagram #bethechange #asia #documentary #documentaryphotography #bbcearth #roamtheplanet #exceptional_pictures #magnumphotos #destinationearth #traveldeeper #lonelyplanet #humanity_shots_ #portrait #kenya #kibera #people_infinity #africa #nairobi #humanitarian #meettheworld #photojournalism
