THE TRUE MEANING OF TIME WELL SPENT.
At Aera we’re constantly inspired by functional tool watches and the people who use them. The everyday adventurers, the travellers, the escapists. The individuals who make the best possible use of the ultimate commodity – time.
Our very first Aeranaut is the wildlife and conservation photographer Steve Woods. Steve was born in Birmingham, UK and is now based in Vancouver, travelling to wherever his ecological work takes him.
In collaboration with Aera, in support of raising funds for the local inhabitants, Steve recently returned to the Maasai Mara and stayed in Emboo River, the area’s first carbon-neutral camp. “It’s the first fully-electric camp in the Mara,” he says. “So, everything is a circular system. It’s all solar-powered – all the hot water, all the lighting, absolutely everything. Electric safari vehicles, too. It’s incredible.”
Steve has documented his time and work in the Mara and you can find it below
