Joel Kleiner's Timeline
“Three trips in one! Spending time in the jungles of Borneo is not something we would normally consider but our past experience with Natural Exposures made us very comfortable joining this tour and we are very happy we did. We visited three distinct areas of Indonesia and photographed the best of each area. The Orang-utans in Borneo, the dragons in Komodo National Park, and the Hindu temples and rice paddies of Java. Every day had new photography opportunities, great food, as well as the ever-friendly residents, hotel staff, tour guides, and fellow explorers who elevated the trip to another level. Not only did I pick up new ideas to improve my photography but the cooking class at Boroburdur was a great way to learn new food ideas. It is those little extras that make Natural Exposure trips special. Thanks to Tanya for putting this unique experience together and thanks to Dan for his always helpful photographic advice.”
This was my first time visiting the Asian side of the world. It was a very diverse trip with Temples, Komodo Dragons and Orangutans. From very luxury resorts to wave rocking boats this trip had it all. All the people we met from resort staff to village residents were friendly. We got to spend a lot of time in the muslim culture and that is a very positive eye opening experience. For the first time ever, we were asked to be photographed many times. Talk about reversing roles! Another plus is the fantastic food plus the best chocolate desert ever (unanumously agreed to by all of us) on the boat part of the trip. And of course I will never ever forget my very first and second massage at the SPA at Plataran Borodour given by Tari – wow. Dan and Tanya created another masterpiece of a journey and I highly recommend it.
Madagascar is the most third world country I have visited. Poverty is everywhere however I have never seen such happy children. They love to have their photos taken and when you show it to them they squeal with delight. The variety of Lemurs is vast and the photo opportunities are endless. Catching Lemurs in flight is a challenge for any photographer. The cutest image is of a one week old Lemur buried in its mother’s fur with the head barely visiable (see last image). Another Dan and Tanya trip of a lifetime.
