I recently got asked what trip am I most excited about sending travelers on in 2014. My personal favorite has to do with dragons and not just because I’m also really excited for the 2nd Hobbit movie to come out! I’m talking about REAL dragons, the ones you can find only in the Komodo Islands of Indonesia. My wife and I had the privilege of joining one of our Indonesian Adventure Voyages on the Ombak Putih which departs from Bali and tip-toes through the eastern archipelago visiting remote fishing communities, deserted islands with off shore coral reefs of incredible biodiversity and of course foot pursuits to find dragons in the Komodo National Park.
This photo shoud give you a pretty good idea of the size of the dragons.

I recently set out on a two week reconnaissance mission to Morocco with the objective of searching for new routes and making deeper connections with the locals. I accomplished my goal and we are excited to announce we have redesigned our trips to Morocco, including new expert local guides who are your personal connection to the people and places you visit.

From incredible adventure activities like sandboarding in the Sahara to authentic cultural experiences such as dinner with local Berbers, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to...

But did you know that deep within the Amazon Rainforest of Southern Peru is one of the best places to learn to take professional wildlife photos?
Operating out of the Tambopata region of the Peruvian Amazon, award-winning photographer Jeff Cremer escorts small-group trips between three different lodges and offers a mix of in-the-field shooting opportunities combined with photography workshops back at the lodge to help budding photographers develop their skill set. The Tambopata is one of richest wildlife areas in the Amazon so photographers and wildlife enthusiasts have an excellent chance of encountering and shooting...

My wife and I recently had the opportunity travel to Patagonia with Wildland Adventures. Since I work as a professional photographer shooting sports (primarily soccer) and concerts I was very interested in pretending to be a landscape photographer on this trip. I have been asked to provide some thoughts on taking pictures during a trip like this.
If you are not a landscape photographer then trying to prepare is daunting. Although I spend a lot of time on forums, the...
Traveling to Argentina and through the province of Salta I was struck by how many handsome and funny dogs there are. Everywhere we went many greeted us with smiles and ran alongside us, unless they were sleeping off a long night. So I started photographing them and here's an assortment of our friendly natives of Salta.
"Oh you tourists, why bother with them?"
