What's your absolute favorite place you've traveled?
This is a challenging question to answer! For both of us, each new place we have the opportunity to discover has certain qualities that set it apart from anywhere else we've been before. However, our hearts currently belong to the exceptional country of Switzerland, where our journey to establish this blog first began. Not only does it have some of the world's most beautiful scenery, but the opportunity for adventure abounds. In particular, we can't imagine a more perfect place than the snow-covered streets of Zermatt or the mossy hills of Wengen.
Who takes your photos?
Matt, of course! Probably 90 percent of all of the photos you see on this site were taken by him, though Hillary does chip in a bit where she can. Both of us practically sleep with our individual photo gear, though Matt certainly has quite a bit more accessories (and skill!) when it comes to capturing the perfect moment on film.
What camera(s) do you guys use?
For most of his photos and videos, Matt currently uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera with a variety of lenses (Canon 16-35mm, Canon 50mm, Canon 70-200mm, Canon 8-15 fish eye). Hillary currently uses a Canon 70D with a Canon 24-105mm lens. The both of us also use our iPhones - Matt has an iPhone 5s and Hillary has an iPhone 5c. For active shots (especially car scenes and underwater videos), we use a GoPro Hero 4 black edition. Those cool aerials? A DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter.
Where have you traveled?
Together, we've traveled to nine countries, four continents and more US states than we can count. You can see some of our favorite places here. But each of us also has stories from travels we have taken individually throughout our lifetimes.
