I've been going through my shots of Bolivia taken a couple of months ago for a client, and I'm still blown away by how beautiful the Bolivian highlands were.

Imagine me sat there taking this picture of a perfect volcanic lake with the volcano in the background, only to have a family of Vicuña walk through. It didn't feel real.

Just when I thought Ecuador couldn't get any better.

In Ecuador you can find snow capped volcanoes, the tropical Amazon Rainforest, The mighty Andes mountain range, A coastline on the pacific littered with paradise beaches and the Galapagos Islands (to be brief). Well, today I went to El Cajas National Park, which is an alpine area full of lakes and mountains that looks more like New Zealand or Scotland. What a country!

The newly announced Sony A7Rii looks like the ultimate hybrid film making and stills camera!
As someone who professionally needs the best still imaging and video quality & functionality all in one, small, package, I'm going to sell everything I own and potentially be homeless to buy this camera!

Sony, TAKE MY MONEY!

In the Bolivian desert there are loads of these wind eroded rocks in all kinds of crazy shapes and patterns. They're interesting to walk around and climb on. Very cool.

So near Baños de Agua Santa in Ecuador you can swing over the edge of a cliff on the side of an active volcano, whilst over looking the jungle. 

I'm not even joking. I did it yesterday afternoon. Just another reason why I have completely fallen in love with Ecuador!

Our latest blog post tells all about our time with Alalay, the incredible foundation that relies solely on donations in order to help over 1000 children a year. A happy childhood is something so many of us took for granted, but for the street kids of Bolivia, their so called 'innocent years' are spent sleeping in drains, sniffing glue and stealing food to survive.

Please read and share the post if you can and help us raise awareness for such an important project

A Squirrel Monkey hanging out in the Amazon Rainforest. I have never been to another place that has sooo many amazing species of wildlife in such close proximity.

These little guys were hard to get on camera. We were following them around for ages, waiting for one to sit still for more than a second. I'm sure they knew. I swear I heard one laughing at me.

For these 2 dudes in Mompiche, Ecuador, I guess that's a reality. Every single afternoon I would see them playing in the surf with their buddies for hours.

Yesterday I coasted down a river through the Amazon Rainforest on a small boat.

It was incredible. Just us, the jungle and the wildlife, and not another person for miles. What an experience.

The majestic Puma at +Merazonia Wildlife Sanctuary, Ecuador. She was rescued from a hostel along with 30 other animals, where she was being kept in a tiny 2 x 3 metre cage in the reception. She arrived with severe muscle dystrophy and psychological issues.

Now she has a huge enclosure, is fed correctly and is perfectly healthy. She may never be able to be released in to the wild, but has a life as natural and comfortable as possible thanks to Merazonia.

We have just arrived in Tena, Ecuador, on the borders of the Amazon Rainforest after an amazing 3 days visiting Merazonia​ Wildlife Sanctuary, shooting promo material of all of the animals and the hard working volunteers.

It was an incredible experience to see and shoot the brilliant work that goes on there, caring for and rehabilitating injured and sick animals confiscated from the illegal pet trade. This is one of the several beautiful Woolly Monkeys that currently call Merazonia home. 

I'm going to be sharing lots of animal pics in the next couple of days because I have so many!

It's my last day in beautiful Quito today before heading out for some exciting adventures around Ecuador. Tomorrow, we head towards the Amazon to visit +Merazonia wildlife sanctuary, for 3 days of shooting all of the animals for them. I'm especially looking forward to hanging out with the monkeys!

Naturally, in the jungle there is no internet, so I may not post for a few days :)

I've been going through my shots of Bolivia taken a couple of months ago for a client, and I'm still blown away by how beautiful the Bolivian highlands were.

Imagine me sat there taking this picture of a perfect volcanic lake with the volcano in the background, only to have a family of Vicuña walk through. It didn't feel real.

Even though I have been lucky enough to see some of the most amazing destinations in the world, the highlight of travelling for me is the work I get to do with charities and NGO's.

This video is one I created in conjunction with the LATA foundation for an amazing NGO called Alalay (www.alalay.co.uk), who are dedicated to helping and saving the street kids of Bolivia.

Visiting them profoundly affected Laura and I. I don't think I have seen another NGO that is so successfully changing the lives and futures of so many innocent children, who through no fault of their own, are forced to live on the streets of Bolivia in horrific conditions.

Please check out www.alalay.co.uk to see how you can donate or help. This NGO literally improves, and in some cases saves, the lives of over a thousand children every year.
