The Okavango Delta by Air

I'm still getting around to editing images from my Africa trip in between client jobs, and today I made a commitment to put together a blog post from the Okavango Delta.  While in Botswana in the Moremi National Park, (on the same day as the viral hit of watching a leopard leap from a tree onto an impala), we took an afternoon helicopter ride over the Delta.  I was front and center up with the pilot, while my brother and sister in law were in the back seat.  Recognizing I was a photographer, the pilot opted to take the doors off the helicopter, which made for an even cooler experience!  Even though most animals can be easily spooked from the helicopter, we were treated to not only a scenic ride, but one peppered with red lechwe, elephants, giraffes, and also hippos. 

Check out some of the images I was able to capture from the ride, and don't miss the video slideshow at the end; make sure you watch in HD.  And if you ever consider a trip to Botswana, I highly recommend staying at Chief's Camp, right on the Delta.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
