At the beginning of the year Helen Warwick, deputy editor of Nat Geo Traveller UK, and her husband joined BSV for a honeymoon charter. Rufus and I didn’t run the charter ourselves but when Helen started putting her article together she approached Rachael (our boss’ wife and owner of Absolute Belize, a luxury travel company, who coordinated Helen’s Belizean vacation) and asked if we would submit some of our photos to accompany it, along with another photographer.
I wasn’t sure if Helen would choose any of my shots, especially alongside a pro photographer, so it was exciting to see a couple of my photos published for the first time, especially in a travel magazine and most especially in a National Geographic publication!
When I showed Rufus the July/August 2015 edition, and he saw himself in the pages, he asked me in a slightly worried tone: “Does this mean I’m famous now?”. I laughed so hard I almost dropped my laptop! Luckily I don’t think he has anything to worry about just yet…
Thank you Helen and Rachael for the opportunity to be part of this!
