La Ruta del Vino

Here it is! Our latest project from Orangutan.

Back in March-April we went down to the Colchagua valley for a 2 week shoot for the Ruta del Vino exploring the process of producing, in my opinion, some of the most incredible wines on the planet.

The actual video is one hour long however we have made it available on YouTube as 6 episodes.

Join host Rodrigo Alcalde as he explores the wine, culture and people of this incredible part of the world!

Planet Kapow 45 : The Santa Cruz Trek

The latest video from our Planet Kapow adventure has arrived!

In this video we take on the Santa Cruz trek in Perú – a 4 day trek that begins a few hours from Huaraz in the town of Cashapampa, and gets you up to about 4750m – a record for all of us at the time.

The trek was an incredible experience and I would really recommend to any who is kind of a little bit fit (really we weren’t) and wants to see the world from up in the Andes.

Lachie as always has a very entertaining read over at Planet Kapow, which is also where you will find the video:

Tacos, quesadillas and lots of spiky plants!

We are in Mexico!

This ep we make our way from Tijuana to Ensenada, meet some lovely people, and all head out to San Pedro Martir national park for a night under the stars.

Check out the clip and Lachy’s great writeup!

Video: Ping Pong Ka-Pow, “Episode 14 – Long Hard and Deep” – Tiger Leaping Gorge

It’s been a long time coming, but here is the latest Ping Pong Kapow video from Erin, Lachlan & my journey through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos & China in late 2008.

Episode 14 takes us north of Lijang, Yunnan province, up above the Yangtze River to Tiger Leaping Gorge.

Check it out here, or be even cooler and check out our new site and read in much more interesting detail about what we got up to. (Warning – contains graphic images of a pig being butchered, and the occasional/usual swearing.)

Project Transient website

I spoke to Anobel yesterday – Project Transient is now live!

Anobel has done a fantastic job on the website – check it out:

Some words from Anobel from the Project Transient site:

The Iraq war has displaced millions of Iraqis from their homes, and their stories have been largely neglected. The goal of this project was to better understand the plight of these refugees, their living conditions, their medical issues, their access to health care, and how the war has affected their lives, and document and share my findings using photography.

With the support and blessing of my medical school and the Areas of Concentration in Medical Humanities at UCSF, I spent the last three months of my fourth year of medical school in the Middle East, to study, learn, experience and photograph. I lived in Jaramana, a refugee camp a few kilometers outside Damascus, Syria, in a refugee health clinic established by the Assyrian General Conference. The clinic is a small two bedroom apartment that has been converted, the living room into a waiting room and one bedroom into a sparse examination room. I lived with Dr. Milad Youkhana in the second room and had the opportunity to see patients, integrate into the community, visit people’s homes, and hear their stories. I hope the documentary film and photos will raise awareness and inspire others to continue to work to help Iraqi refugees.
