It’s been a little while since I’ve found the time to put up a blog post here. Fortunately this hasn’t happened because I’ve had nothing to write about, but more so because I’ve been so busy with photography work since I finished my internship with Chris Burkard that I simply haven’t found the time to share anything here.
2016 has gone off to a great start and with one project backing the next I’ve been on the road every single day of the year so far! Today I’d like to share the project that has taken most of my creative time and passion for the past 6 months.
For those of you who don’t know so much about me: A few years ago I quit my job and travelled around the world with a friend. This is when a 2 hobbies became a passion and that passion became a life goal. I was determined to find a way to travel and take photos for a living. I wanted to share my experiences and inspire the possibility of a different lifestyle and the pursuit of your dreams.
The photography part of the dream I have been documenting ever since on this blog and I always felt that the travel part didn’t quite have a right place yet. And soon enough Freya, my girlfriend and travel buddy also quite enjoyed the idea of becoming a ‘professional traveller’ for a living.
On the long straight roads of California we sat in our van and spent hours brainstorming ideas. We wanted to create something to fill in the gaps between photographic projects and share more of what was going on in our lives. We had more than photos to share and with our combined travel experience on how to be on the road in an affordable way we soon had a new project.
The Sandy Feet is the blog and space where we share our travel experiences. Since we’ve both backpacked around the world in the past it only seemed logical to turn this new platform into a resource of travel information and advice for the low budget backpacker.
If you’re planning a surf trip to French Polynesia, a road trip in California or want to go off the beaten path in Nicaragua I’d highly recommend checking out our blog. Future articles will be about the 2016 hotspot: Cuba and later on some travel advice on Europe, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. We post at least once per week so keeping if you’re like me and want to save time I’d recommend signing up for our monthly newsletter (scroll down to the bottom of the page in the link to see the signup form)
The whole site is still taking baby steps and we’re incredibly thankful for any advice/ support along the way. So please, give us your opinion and thoughts!
Since The Sandy Feet has become the perfect place for my travel photos I will devote this website to my portfolio and write about the more technical part of photography and I’d like to invite you on a journey behind the scenes of a professional photographer whose home office is wherever he’s at. I’ll be sharing more advice on how I manage working on the road, my workflows, processes and what it means to carry everything you own anywhere you go.
