Six Minutes in the Serengeti

Around the World in 4 Minutes

When I was a psychotherapist an AIDS patient told me what he wanted most was lots of adventures so when he was sick he would have lots of great memories. I thought that was a great way to approach living, and this video is the result of my years of collecting adventures and memories, and the photography that was the result.

Pushkar Camel Market

This is a 300 year old market at which ten thousand camels attend to be sold, traded, paraded and raced. It is an exotic event and includes horse trading, gypsy dancers, musicians, chai wallahs, sadhus, snake charmers, ferris wheels, and all manner of merchants. There is a reason that earplugs are provided in our tent. The panoply goes on all night.

Faces of India

The people of India were very gracious about having their picture taken, and in many tourist areas they wanted a photo or selfie with us. In rural areas they were both curious about us and shy. This video shows the diversity of India, and we only saw a small part of Rajasthan.

Morocco - March, 2016

We landed in Tangier and were met by our guide, driver and translator Mohammed Aboud, who with his brother and father have a tourist agency called Trips to Morocco. Mohammed drove us first to the blue city of Chefchaouen, and then South to Fez, Mechnes, and the Sahara Desert; and we ended our trip in Marrakesh.

Botswana & Namibia 2016

A quick sampling of our photo safari with CNP Safaris using custom vehicles and professional photography guides from South Africa.

Stalking Lioness with Masai Chanting

While on safari in Kenya we actually stayed with this lioness over an hour to get this two minute video. She did a lot of careful creeping towards her prey (we were between her and her antelope). She was with another lioness, and they were using a strategy of a "striker" and a "catcher". The striker would drive the prey towards the catcher, who would make the kill. In this case this lioness was the catcher, but shortly after this video clip they gave up and didn't attempt a kill because the antelope wandered too far away to be caught by surprise.

The Five Minute Kenya Safari

Here is the distillation of approximately eighty hours of game drives at three Safari Parks in Kenya: Meru, Samburu and Masai Mara In August, 2014. It involved a lot of driving and waiting, but as you can see it had it's peak moments. This video is incorporated into my blog on the trip: kenya-safari-2014.blogspot.com/.

Botswana 2012

Published in 2016 with new software, these are photos and videos taken on our safari in Botswana with And Beyond Safaris.

Bull Elephant in Botswana

This bull was telling us to get out of his face! It was one of those moments that takes your breath away. He was so close I backed off my camera to wide angle.

Elephant Orphanage

The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya. It is mostly populated by the babies of elephants killed by poachers for their ivory tusks. The babies are taken in and have handlers who stay with them 24/7, and become their adoptive parents. They are gradually reintroduced to a wild herd, but the process can take ten years.

3 Minute Cuba

February, 2015 trip to Cuba. It was primarily a scuba diving trip to the Gardens of the Queen, but we spent two days on land. This depicts what our tour experienced. This being my second trip to Cuba, albeit brief, the one thing that stands out is their MUSIC!

Gardens of the Queen, Cuba

Archipielago de los Jardines de la Reina, an underwater park established in 1996 to protect the reef and it's inhabitants. The result is many different species of fish that are allowed to grow to a great size, specifically the goliath grouper - which is extinct in much of the Caribbean. There is also a prevalence of sharks, which were with us on almost every dive. Where the reef in many parts of the world is dying, this park demonstrates how corals and fish can thrive.

This video depicts a dive trip organized with Denver Divers, through Ocean Doctor and Avalon in February, 2015.

Diving with Great White Sharks

220 miles off the coast of Baja Mexico we encounter great white sharks.
