Meet @katiecleod, a travel journalist, blogger and overall wonderful person! I crafted this video to help her engage even more deeply with her blog community, and I just love how it turned out! • • • • • #travelblogger #tbscommunity #newyorkcitylife #femalefilmmaker #createandcultivate #risingtidesociety #brandfilm #hobokenvideographer #newjerseyvideography #newyorkvideographer
Do you ever need a mental break from passion projects? 🗻 I’ve spent the past week ferociously editing a piece I’m pretty excited about, but I’ll be honest, the late nights and full weekend days in the editing room have left my brain a little fried. With a business goal of “balance” this year, I’m taking this as a sign it’s time to step back, power down and spend a few days NOT editing so I can keep the creative juices alive. 🗻 And for me, the best place to restore that creativity is simply outside. While sadly I’m not in the beautiful wilderness of Death Valley, even a daily walk with Harry is a great time to recharge. 🗻 Where do you go to recharge creatively?!
This is me, pretending Monday is just a dream and this beautiful weekend will go on forever! •• What’s the best thing you did all weekend? •• #bouldersbeach #bouldersbeachpenguins #southafricatrip #wildlifephotography #penguinstagram #mondaymotivation (except not really...)
Yesterday marked five years of laughter, adventure, chaos, sweatpants, dog parenting, globetrotting and sheer happiness with my partner in crime, @frankaf17. If a photo’s worth 1,000 words, I think this one sums us up pretty perfectly! ✨ Whether it’s been one month or 60 years, what’s one thing you’ve learned from your life partner? ✨ #travelcouples #kuganha #southafricasafari #inverdoorn #inverdoorngamereserve #glamping #tentedcamp #westerncape
There’s something about a sky this clear and stars this bright that reminds us of our place in the world, in a humbling yet powerful way. ✨ When’s the last time you gazed at stars this clear? (Photo from our recent Costa Rica trip!)
I spy ... a tapir! 🐾 You’ve probably seen the word tapir more on my feed in the past two weeks than perhaps your entire life. By now you also know I’m creating a film about the tapir ... but in the meantime, here are a few things you DON’T know about this amazing animal. 🐾 1) The tapir is nocturnal, but we caught this guy exploring the beaches of Corcovado (scroll for more) 2) Baby tapirs have unique, spotted patterns that have dubbed them the nickname “watermelon” 3) Tapirs are endangered for a variety of reasons, including habitat loss, poaching and trafficking (but with my video work in the coming months, you’ll learn how you can help!!) 🐾 What animal would you most love to see in the wild?
I’m baaaack from a week-long trip documenting the work @naiconservation is doing to help save the tapir population in Costa Rica. I’m so inspired & excited about their work I’ve already started to dive into my 10+ hours of footage... talk about labor of love! 🐾 In the meantime, I’ll give you a few sneak peeks of the Costa Rica trip this week, starting with a Stephanie in her natural habitat — hiking through knee-high waters in the jungles of the Osa peninsula. What’s your favorite “habitat” on vacay?
