Went searching for Nemo on DayDream Island in the Whit Sunday’s the other day. You have to love the Great Barrier Reef! #lovethewhitsundays #SeeAustralia (at Daydream Island)
Last night @mattglastonbury, @laurenepbath and myself hosted a great group of photographers for a Google+/Instagram Photo Walk in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. It was a pleasure getting a chance to talk to all of the local photographers.
The Kangaroo Point Cliffs offer some great rock climbing opportunities, giving me the ability to snap this quick shot of a belay making sure his buddy was safe as he scaled the wall.

Today wraps up an epic IG event here in the Whit Sunday Islands in Queensland, Australia that was hosted by @mattglastonbury & @laurenepbath . Stoked to have made new friends and have yet another excuse to visit one of my favorite countries in the world.

Epic sunset over Hideaway Bay, an hour outside Airlie Beach, Australia. Taken in from of Montes restaurant, which serves some of the best seafood in town.

There is nothing like diving off the bow of a 127 ft sailing vessel known as the Solway Lass to start the morning off in Australia.
Thanks for the capture @Jewelszee_ !

The tranquil emerald waters of the Whit Sunday Islands in Australia make for a gorgeous place to do an over night sailing trip full of scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming with turtles. Who wants to join me on this “difficult” adventure ;)

If I had to spend Thanksgiving away from my family back in the US, I can think of worse places to hangout than Whitehaven Beach in the Whit Sunday Islands, Australia

It is always a pleasure to taken in the tropical climate found along the coast line in Queensland, Australia. This Hibiscus was captured in Airlie Beach near the lagoon in town. #lovethewhitsundays #nokia1020 #mobilephotography (at Airlie Beach Lagoon)
Like so many survivors of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan that ripped through the Philippines, Anna lost 7 members of her family. Those living on the shoreline in Tacloban saw water level rise close to 6 meters, effectively decimating the shacks and shanties that stood in the way of the water. Only time will tell how many passed away in the destruction as thousands of people are still considered missing and they are still pulling out close to 60 bodies a day from the debris in Tacloban alone.
Stay tuned for more updates from #Tacloban

All around Tacloban, Philippines you can find dozens of tractors working hard to remove the hundreds of thousands of kilos of debris that litters the city from the devastating typhoon that hit the island nation. Many of the city streets off the main roads are still packed full of broken houses, shanties, garbage and yes, bodies. It can reach 3 meters high in some areas!
Stay tuned for more updates from #Tacloban !

One morning just outside the Tacloban airport in the Philippines I came across a Special Rescue Unit of the BFP (Bureau of Fire Protection) out of Manila. Their division had been sent to Tacloban shortly after the typhoon hit and have been working feverishly for over two weeks without a break clearing roads, providing water from their trucks and retrieving bodies from the wreckage. They agreed to allow me to ride with them on top of their truck and witness the work they were doing.
On this morning, their team removed 18 bodies from all across the city. Every day they said their division has been pulling out close to 60 bodies, making the current death toll estimates seem pretty low. Talking with them, it was evident that they loved helping those in need. The since of community in the Philippines is incredibly strong.

While sanitation and clean drinking water problems persist throughout Tacloban and the other areas in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Yolanda, broken water pipes throughout the city have helped mitigate the situation. While probably not safe to drink, they do provide opportunities to clean, cook and wash clothes. Every bit helps!
Stay tuned for more updates from the field in #Tacloban including a list of small NGO’s that need your support over the large charities that have large donor bases.
