Five Months with the Colombian Navy

Full photo story article with photos and text
42 photos, 700 words

I was asked by the then admiral of the Colombian Pacific Fleet to do the photography for a book commemorating the fleet base's 20th anniversary. This entailed working over a 5 month period with the special forces, naval personnel, trips in helicopters and light aircraft, visits to islands in the Pacific, and into the jungle to the indigenous people. I was also asked to do photos of scenery flowers, insects and whatever wildlife I could find. This was an adventure of a lifetime!!
