Rainforests of Borneo

This brand new Wild Eye photographic safari will see you traveling to some of the most amazing nature and wildlife destinations in Borneo including the Kinabatangan River, Tabin Wildlife Reserve and the Danum Valley which will offer you the opportunity of searching for and photographing species like orangutans, pygmy elephants, hornbills, macaques, leaf monkeys, otters and many more.

Borneo, the third-largest island in the world and the largest island in Asia, has some of the world’s most species-rich equatorial rainforests with prime patches that are easily accessible from modern, multiethnic cities.

For many visitors to Borneo, their most memorable moment is glimpsing a wild orangutan swinging through the jungle canopy.  Jungle animals are shy by nature, but a good guide – like the ones we will be using – can help you tell the difference between a vine and vine snake, between a twig and a stick insect, and between the call of a hornbill and a gibbon.

I look forward to sharing this incredible new Wild Eye Adventure with you!

Svalbard Expedition

“One of the oldest dreams of mankind is to find a dignity that include all living things. A way to do this is to pay attention to what occurs in a land untouched by human schemes, where an original order prevails.

As I moved through the Arctic I thought often about a rhythm indigenous to this land, not imposed on it. The imposed view, however innocent, always obscures. The evidence that there is a different rhythm of life here seemed inescapably a part of the expressions of the animals I encountered, though I cannot say precisely why. A coherent view of the pervasiveness of such a rhythm is elusive.”  ~ Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams

Nothing can prepare you for Svalbard.  It is the Arctic North as you always dreamed it existed.  An icy wonder-world, a scenery so thrillingly different to anything else you’ve ever experienced.

It is an wild wilderness at the top of the world – home to arctic foxes, reindeer, seals walrus and an array of unique birdlife. This is however not the exclusive reason for traveling to the end of the world.  Polar Bears – the giants of the land!

Continuously threatened by climate change & other environmental factors, Polar Bears are a species that are in need of every bit of exposure they can get.

Polar Bears are undoubtedly at the top of the agenda, but Arctic Foxes, reindeer, seals, walrus and fantastic birding make for a life-changing experience.

Great Bear Rainforest Expedition

Join me on this amazing Wild Eye photo tour to one of the most stunning nature destinations in Canada.

This natural history voyage will see us explore the protected waters of the North Central coast of Canada’s British Columbia – an area known as the Great Bear Rainforest.

This stretch of coastline is a rich and unique ecosystem of impressive biodiversity – from the herring, salmon and large marine mammals in the sea, to carnivores, ravens and eagles and massive cedar and hemlocks trees on land. It is home to grizzly bears, wolves, humpback whales, and the elusive, all-white Spirit Bear.

On all our expeditions style trips, such as Svalbard and this one, we intentionally keep our itineraries flexible to take advantage of wildlife sightings, weather and tides, and the interests of the group in order to maximize photographic time in the field, Lightroom tutorials and the experience of being in one of the most stunning wildlife destinations in the world.
