It’s good to be posting after being in the jungle for the last few weeks working on a project in West Bengal. Spending time with these giants always leaves me speechless. As overwhelming as it might be to want to photograph them as much as possible, I often have to force myself to put down my camera, slow down, be captivated by their grandeur and try to learn as much as I can from their infinite wisdom. They have much teach and I have much to learn. @gitzoinspires @leica_camera @leicacamerausa @natgeocreative #leicaxu #westbengal #india


It doesn’t matter if I’m in my neighborhood park or on a remote island in Tonga there is one constant, the world is an amazing place. Today and everyday I hope you fall in love with the beauty that surrounds you, inspired to protect it. Happy Earth Day!!! @natgeocreative @gitzoinspires @sea_legacy @everydayclimatechange #earthday #protectwhatyoulove


Video (Graphic): @sea_legacy @mercyforanimals @teamsharkwater // Marine mammals are being mercilessly killed off the coast of California by a fishing practice intended to catch swordfish, which is so high in mercury that it’s deemed unfit for human consumption. Instead it indiscriminately captures and kills other species, such as dolphins, sharks, titles and whales. It’s time to ban California’s driftnet fishery. Here’s how we help do it. (LINK IN BIO) I need your help by adding your signature and voice to a petition aimed to phase out the use of large scale drift nets by California commercial fishing industry. Please join us in this campaign to end this useless slaughter. 🙏🏼. #Turningthetide with @sea_legacy #BanDeathNets


India. So much beauty around every corner. #india @natgeocreative @gitzoinspires


Lost in the jungle today during a 3500km Tuk Tuk race in India. Check out my Instagram stories to see some behind the scenes mayhem of this crazy adventure. @theadventurists #India


Some of my favorite times while traveling is seeing the reactions the local people have when they witness something they have not seen before. There is nothing quite like watching someone take flight for the first time and seeing the amazement on their faces as they witness something that seems impossible is indescribable. The excitement of exploration and wonder is universal and being able to instill that feeling in others is priceless. @natgeocreative @niviukparagliders #africa #paragliding


The simple beauty of this landscape is mesmerizing. Crop fields during a snow storm while road tripping in northern Idaho today. @toyotausa #idaho


Things often appear completely different when seen from a new perspective. A view of the Bazaruto archipelago that only revealed itself when I was able to paraglide above it. Revisiting this magical wondering in the archive this Monday morning while dreaming of distant lands. @natgeocreative #mozambique #africa #bazarutoarchipelago


Days like this are forever seared into my mind. You never know how much time you have to spend with them but your grateful for every second you get. @sea_legacy #whales #humpbacks


We can survive long periods of deprivation when fueled by the memory of our last adventure and encouraged by the promise of the next. @leica_camera @leicacamerausa


Flying into 2018. Wishing you all a Happy New Year. Hope it will be a year filled with love, laughter, good health and fulfillment. #happy2018🎉🥂🍾 #happynewyear #alaska


Whenever I need to feel better, I look at images of Rajan the elephant. My time with him was so special that any photo of him makes me smile. Going into the holiday season I hope all of you are surrounded by those you love. Happy Holidays! @natgeocreative
