About the Book
Aubrey began her career in photography managing her high school darkroom. She was fortunate to meet a National Geographic photographer as a teenager who took her under wing, providing guidance and insights. She has traveled extensively to 14 countries on 5 continents including Palau, Sulawesi, Uganda, Greece, Dominica and New Zealand, Pohnpei, Kosrae, England, France, Greece, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand and Ukraine. She recently left the corporate world to pursue her passion for photography professionally. An avid hiker, PADI divemaster, adventure traveler and naturalist, she combines her passion for design, creating a sense of place and a love of nature to each of her images. She has a special interest in tropical island ecosystems and the microclimates they create as well as the fragility of the environment. She and her husband live on a flower farm on the slopes of Haleakala volcano on Maui. Her work can been seen at www.aubreyhord.com.
