Camera Gear For Adventure Photography Probably the coolest aspect of my job, aside from traveling the world, is the opportunity to document my trips with photos and video. Luckily for me, I’m really into photography. When I was in college, I got started taking photos of skiing and snowboarding. Then I began packing my DSLR on all of my trips and I’m absolutely sure that submitting photos from my adventures helped me land my current job. Now photography and videography are a large part of what I do and magazines like AFAR have featured my work. This year I've been on two work trips and I've decided to share a bit about my gear for the budding photographers out there. My first trip was 3 weeks of adventures in Southeast Asia and the most recent trip was a 3 week trip to Chile to attend the Adventure Travel World Summit. The following photo won the adventure photo...
Tremors For Real: Glowing Predatory Worms Found in Peruvian Amazon Its dark, the howler and capuchin monkeys are in the high branches of the canopy turning in for the night, night birds are singing their songs across the oxbow lakes, the tapirs are feasting at their clay licks and the caiman are slowly starting to come out to feed: nighttime in the Tambopata rainforest and what Jeff Cremer, wildlife photographer, was setting out to attempt to capture on film. What he did not expect, was what he found around the bend on one of the numerous jungle paths this particular evening; embedded in a dirt wall, Jeff came face to face with multiple glowing, green spots luring him in towards them-a type of larva. Never having encountered anything quite like this, he took several photos of the strange phenomenon. What exactly were these bizarre and alluring species beckoning to him in the black of night in the Amazonas? Calling in...
Anne's Special Leopard Skin Camo Gloves for Wildlife Photography This month our expert travel specialists at Wildland Adventures are sharing  blog reviews of their favorite travel gear. Here's a one-of-a-kind, you-won't-find-anywhere-else, glove with special powers used by Anne Kutay, VP of Wildland Adventures. Like Lord of the Rings, this glove is Anne's "precious" secret that brings her close to nature to capture spectacular wildlife images like the ones below with her Canon Powerpoint and Apple Ipad.  Anne walked right up to this pride of lions in the morning sunlight and captured this shot behind the cloak of her leopard skin camo glove...they never saw her coming.     This wild dog popped its head up from the carcas of its kill when it sensed something in the vicinity. But with Anne Kutay's camo glove, she was invisible to the bloody dog and was able to capture this close up.  Another wild dog in the pack sensed her presence but...

Rare Photos of Baby Harpy Eagle Harpy Eagles are one of the most powerful birds of prey in the world. Their talons are the size of Grizzly Bear claws and their gigantic beaks make quick work of the monkeys and sloths they hunt for food.  These massive birds of prey have a wingspan of six to seven feet and, when sitting, have the height of a five-year-old child. They are also one of the least observed raptor species in the world. Combined with diminished number due to habitant loss and human trophy hunters, Harpy Eagles don't soar to hunt, but lurk in the trees like a gigantic winged monstrosity, waiting to ambush prey in surprise. (It goes without saying that monkey and sloth nightmares are dominated by Harpy Eagles.) They also require a huge territory for hunting, with a single pair occupying between 3,000 and 7,000 hectares of forest. So for birders and wildlife enthusiasts alike, a...

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. Not only are the adventurous parts amazing, but it’s everything in-between that makes this trip a winner too! The ship is a...
