#BEAUTIFULIFE Vlogumentary 3 – Safari With Cheetah Plains

In celebration of #NaturePhotographyDay, I'm super excited to share our third VlogumentaryΒ - "Safari With Cheetah Plains". During our recent trip to South Africa, we were lucky enough to visit Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and partner up with Cheetah Plains and Jaci's Sabi House, two amazing sister safari lodges that do an incredible job of immersing you in the surrounding environment and wildlife so that you leave with a greater understanding and a sense of ownership of the land and its inhabitants. Their hope is tha[...]

The Day I Met Some of the Richest People in the World.

I spent a little over 24 hours in D.C. the other week, and while I was there I met some of the richest people in the world. Luckily, they passed some of their good fortune on to me.

If you follow along on my Instagram (hopefully you do), you know that last month I, along with an amazing group of fellow travelers and shooters, took a very special trip to Tequila, Mexico in partnership with Tequila Tourism, National Geographic, and Aeromexico. During that trip we had the privilege of experiencing all that the town has to offer, and we learned that "Tequila" is so much more than just an alcoholic beverage. From a visit of the agave farms at sunrise with a breakfast on the field,Β touring the Jose C[...]

Arnelle’s Gone Wild.

AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK, RWANDA I've been saying for quite some time now that once I "retire", if I ever do (probably not though because I plan on doing what I love until I die), I'd like to become a wildlife photographer. Partially because I love photography, partially because I love animals, and partially because I love that becoming a wildlife photographer often goes hand in hand with becoming an animal activist.Β So many things to do in this lifetime. So. Many. Things. read more[...]
