Closer-Look-20-photography-tips-blog-thumbnail
Throughout my professional travels, I've always enjoyed using a DSLR to capture high-quality images, but as I pair down to carry-on luggage and focus more on the moment than what I see through a lens, I've depended more on the small size and ease of my phone than a separate camera. So, on my recent Wildland trip to Turkey and Georgia I decided to a...

Safari Travel Tips | How to Pack Light for a Long Trip

Porter How to pack light for a safari
One of the most frequent questions I get is how to pack for a safari. Many itineraries in Africa involve flights with strict baggage size and weight limitations due to space on small planes. Pay close attention to your trip itinerary and information to make sure that you are using the correct size and weight luggage. Often soft-...

6 Must-have Items for 6 of South America’s Ultimate Adventures

6 Must-have Items for 6 of South America’s Ultimate Adventures
Finding the right clothes and gear for the modern adventurer, who climbs jagged peaks, kayaks down rapids and zip-lines through cloud forests by day and wines and dines in hip, local hot spots by night, can be difficult: versatility is critical. This is especially true, when completing a multi-day or multi-week adventure in several climates, environments and countries. With airline restrictions becoming ever more rigid, being able to pack light and compact is also necessary. Outlined below are six adventure trips in South America and six items that I highly recommend to maximize your travel experiences in each destination. 1) Brazilian Amazon : ExOfficio’s Bugs Away Marigold Shirt This past year I spent almost a collective month in the heart of Brazil’s Amazon. While hosting our travelers, working with local communities, tree climbing, caiman spotting and hiking I quickly became a fan of ExOfficio’s Bugs Away garments . Not only was the built-in Insect...

Camera Gear For Adventure Photography

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...

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures
Southeast Asia is filled with breathtaking views, ancient temples and some of the friendliest people in the world. There are many great Southeast Asia adventures to be had in this culturally diverse area, so to maximize your enjoyment of these activities I’ve prepared a comprehensive packing list to help you prepare for this amazing experience. Travel skirts are a great way to stay comfortable and keep cool in the heat of the day; however, you need to be cautious with the length as many temples and other sites will not permit you to enter if your skirt is too short. Exofficio’s Go-To Stripe Skirt is quick drying, moisture wicking and even includes a hidden zippered pocket for your cash. This skirt is also modest in length, allowing you to wear it anywhere. I pair my skirt with the Techspressa Support Tank , which is also quick drying and has a built-in...
