Behind the Scenes

Galápagos Islands

I remember as a teenager learning about a voyage that Charles Darwin took on the HMS Beagle. For five years, he joined the expedition which allowed him to explore the coast of South America and the islands including the Galápagos. His spirit of adventure and enormous curiosity impacted everything he did for the rest of his life. My travel to the Galápagos were different than any shoot in my career. It was a rare experience to photograph the unique animals in their habitat, which in many ways has been unchanged since Darwin's time.
