Who Are We?
We are Kim and Del Hogg, the couple behind Going the Whole Hogg. Now in our thirties, we’ve been travelling the world for most of our adult lives. We love exploring, with a big focus on hiking and camping, and an ever growing appetite for scuba diving. History, culture and food too, all hold an important place for us. We are equally at home in the heart of a bustling city, or trekking over a high mountain pass.
We are currently living in South Korea, and as of June 2018 we will be packing our lives onto our backs and travelling full time for the foreseeable future. Our upcoming adventures include trips to Japan, Australia, Mongolia, Central Asia, Nepal and Oman. From early 2019 we will be spending an extended period of time in Latin America.
We have over a decade of experience in the travel and hospitality industries. Kim worked for seven years with an international travel agency in both sales and management roles, excelling in brand, product and destination marketing. Going the Whole Hogg grew out of a passion for inspiring and helping people to travel and discover new places and experiences, combined with a desire to get out there in the world full time ourselves. We were no longer content with working and saving hard for short term travel, only to return to our careers a few months later. We wanted to channel our dedication and committed work ethic into building something for us, not the companies we were working for.
What Can You Expect From Us?
After months of planning, we launched Going the Whole Hogg in early 2018. We aim to build a loyal, trusting and engaged following through high quality, in-depth written content, photography and video. Combining this with a strong social media strategy and a detailed understanding of SEO, we expect to see a rapid growth in our readership.

But, why us?
With years of experience working in the travel industry, we know how to successfully promote a destination, product or service. We know what works, and what doesn’t; after all your target audience is our target audience. We have an understanding of exactly what we, and other travellers like us, want, need and expect. In this competitive online age, mediocre content will get you nowhere. We pride ourselves on producing innovative, useful, attractive and thoughtful articles, galleries and videos. Does that sound like something you’d like to be part of?
If you want to talk through an idea, we’d love to hear from you.
We are accomplished photographers with a passion for capturing defining images of people and places. We have built and developed a range of photography and post production skills over the years. For us, photography is an integral part of the travel experience.
If you like our photography and see something you want to use, our images can be licensed for commercial use. We are also available for photography assignments to show off your destination, tour, business or whatever it may be. Contact us for current rates and prices.
We believe video has the ability to truly bring a destination or experience to life and love creating well produced, entertaining, informative and visually engaging videography. We can be commissioned to create individual film work, or produce video as part of a wider project along with photography and written content. Get in touch to talk over some ideas!
