Why Chasing Hippos? My love for travel and adventure began when I got married. One of my first trips was to West Africa where we heard there was a small safari close by. Our main reason for going was to see some Hippos. After a 3 hour drive, on a very rough dirt road, we arrived full of anticipation and excitement. Our guide then told us that the Hippos are no longer alive. While it was not the news we wanted to hear our passion for chasing and seeing hippos never diminished.
I began Photography in September 2015 right before we took a fantastic trip to the Galapagos Islands. I just wish I would have known more about photography before going to such an incredible place its all about learning and improving.
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV and a 7D Mark II and post process in Lightroom and Photoshop. My passion for photography continues and grows with each destination we discover.
