Bucket List: Galapagos

As a child, I would stand in awe over images from the Galapagos Islands. My life’s dream was always to be a wildlife photographer, and from the age of 6 and beyond there were two destinations that fueled my desire for photography…. Africa, and the Galapagos Islands.

Thanks to Hotel Solymar Galapagos, one of my childhood obsessions recently came to life…and more vivid than any photograph or video could ever truly depict.  Visit their website at PoolIn December we traveled to the enchanted Galapagos Islands, just 600 miles from the coast of Ecuador. Our mission…give Hotel Solymar Galapagos an updated library of photographs that showcases their crown jewel on the island of Santa Cruz. Sunset Behind HillA Rainbow Over SolymarWe were asked to deliver images of the hotel’s accommodations, food and surrounding attractions that make Hotel Solymar the premier destination for those looking to get a little closer to nature…without having to leave behind the modern comforts that we are all guilty of growing used to.Hotel Solymar Night Mid ShotHotel Solymar Night ShotDoor By WhalesRoom 4 2Bar Drinks Looking DownFood Solymar Red DrinkFood Plate 1 2Food TenticuloIn addition to showcasing their establishment, we were also tasked with showing some of the amazing sights and activities the island of Santa Cruz had to offer. This included trips out on the open sea searching for sharks.Getting Pelican ShotEntering Fisherman AreaBoats In SunriseA trip to the highlands brought us face to face with real, live dinosaurs. Well, ok maybe that is a stretch… but these guys could easily have been running around with dinosaurs back in the early ages. Just one look at a Galapagos Tortoise, in its rich and green highland environment, and it’s easy to forget which millennium you have stumbled into.Giant Tortoise Up Close With AlgaeGiant Tortoises In PondWe also provided Hotel Solymar Galapagos with a promotional video designed to bring our photos from the trip, and the hotel, to life!

Caribbean Paradise

We recently visited Turks And Caicos to gather a collection of dramatic ocean images. What we found were pristine white sand beaches that greeted turquois waters beneath an always sunny Caribbean sky. Needless to say, we were not disappointed!

In this 10 image photographic study we want to give you a taste of this small island country’s Caribbean flavor. Though you can’t feel the ocean breeze or the soft sand beneath your feet, we hope each image will speak to you in the way this ocean paradise spoke to us. We didn’t just bring home photographs, we brought home a lifetime of memories!
