Finding a “natural” frame in the outdoors is one of the purest ways to draw someone’s attention to your subject. A seasoned photographer will seek them out whether it’s a simple tree branch or massive mountains that pull you into the frame. It can take a lot of practice to perfect & truthfully nobody ever does, but the practice of creating a unique photo is usually the best part.
A look behind the scenes of ‘Under an Arctic Sky’ - next Monday 20th in New York City I will be presenting a filmmaking workshop & diving into the entire process of making a film from beginning to end. open discussion format - so bring your questions! . 20$ ( a few spots left) Tickets in my bio link !

Raise your hand if you love the log cabin life! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♂️ During my partnership with @travelmindset & @travelmanitoba to explore Churchill, we stayed at Lazy Bear Lodge on the town’s main street, Kelsey Blvd. Manitoba-born local Wally Daudrich began dreaming of a Lodge in the 1980’s while working as a Polar Bear guide, and realized his dream when he began building the Lodge in 1995. It was completed in 2005. Wally, Dawn and their kids have poured their heart and soul into it, sometimes with only hand tools. The timber was reclaimed from a fire in the boreal forest, the windows were recycled from an 1800’s Hudson’s Bay trading post and the floor is recycled Douglas Fir from a Canadian National Railway warehouse built in the early 1920’s! Two greenhouses are now part of the business ensuring the Lodge’s kitchen doesn’t haven’t to depend only on what can be flown in; and there’s all the tours, guides and boats that come with @lazybearexpeditions, also owned by Wally. He’s a busy man! I enjoyed staying at the Lodge because it felt like grown up summer camp, so similar in vibe to where I went in Michigan’s U.P. every summer as a kid. I loved that camp so much I returned to be a counselor when I was too old to be a camper. And just like me, I met people who return to Lazy Bear every year over and over; always in search of that special magic the Lodge, Churchill’s locals and wildlife have that’s difficult to put into words. And with every season being different, I understand the appeal. I already want to return too! 🐻 #exploremb #explorecanada #lazybearexpeditions . Self shot on my @sonyalpha a7R II with my @vanguardworld VEO2 tripod. Thank you for the camera bag @boundarysupply.
Day two of an amazing week hiking in the backcountry with 12 adventurous women, carrying 40 lb packs and covering nearly 60 miles completely off trail, navigating with a map and compass. I couldn’t have asked for a better crew on this #bmtmadventures week in Alaska. You know it’s perfect when your abs hurt from laughing as much as your legs do from climbing! Watch my IGTV story to see the magic! (📸: @lmurchie)

To only share the still image of this place would be a travesty. To truly appreciate the beauty of the Aleutians islands, you need motion. @benweiland has stood beside me during some of the greatest moments in my life. We’ve explored together for almost 10 years & I was grateful to have him with my to capture footage of one of Earths last wild places, a place him & I traveled to almost 5 years ago & only dreamed of returning. . Shot on assignment for @conservationorg ‘s Fellows Grant.
One of the best mornings of 2018 so far, somewhere in the heart of the Pyrenees 💙 @lolosjohan

During my partnership with @travelmindset & @travelmanitoba, I didn’t get a lot of great photos of the polar bears and beluga whales that make visiting the town of Churchill so special in summer. (Though just seeing them was *amazing*.) But we did have other animal encounters! My favorite was getting to spend time with the sled dogs that Gerald and Jenafor have up at Blue Sky Mush. We met Gerald at Lazy 🐻 Lodge / @lazybearexpeditions. He’s originally from a Métis community called Cormorant and now lives amongst the lakes outside the town of Churchill with Jenafor where they also have a B&B. She makes a Bannock with wild blueberries that I woke up dreaming about this morning and they’re so generous with their stories of Manitoba and their lives in this wild part of Canada. Visiting their home and meeting dogs such as Sony (as in the camera I use!), Isobel & Thunder was such a treat for me!! Sled dogs are my favorite type of dog and while we’re not in a place to have one in our home now, @dante.vincent and I talk about it on the regular for that time in our lives that it will make sense. They’re animals that take a lot of care and need the right environment in order to thrive. When you adopt one, I feel it should be about what the dog needs not what you want as an owner. I get so sad when I see people adopt them into 500 sq ft apartments with no space for the dogs to run. They LOVE to run and they’ll make a lot of noise when they know they’re going to get the opportunity to do just that! Their enthusiasm is contagious. You can’t be upset when you’re around these dogs! Gerald & Jenafor have a no cull policy and are always looking for the right homes for their adoptable dogs. Is that you? If not you can still visit and love on these dogs like we did! 🐺🐕 #exploremb #explorecanada #sleddogsofinstagram #blueskymush
One of my favorite sights in Patagonia, if not the world. There are 3 spots left for my hiking and photography trip in March! If you’re into hiking in gorgeous scenery with an amazing group of women, I’d love to see you there! Click the link in my bio for more info!

hide and seek with my new polar bear friend 👋🏼🐻 | i couldn’t have been more excited to come to churchill, the polar bear capital of the world, but actually seeing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat was so much more incredible than i could’ve ever imagined. after dreaming about the encounter for so long, i was amazed when i first laid my eyes on one of these formidable giants. their size and power demands respect and they truly command the landscape of the arctic ocean. definitely an experience i’ll never forget! @travelmanitoba #exploremb #lazybearexpeditions . . . #wildernessculture #tlpicks #awesomeearth #aroundtheworldpix #beautifuldestinations #wanderout #wonderful_places #tourtheplanet #earthofficial #theglobewanderer  #alphacollective #discoverglobe #fantastic_earth #places_wow #wonderful_places #earthfocus #voyaged #awesome_globepix #bestvacations #nature #awesome_photographers #awesome_earthpix #ourplanetdaily #earthpix

There’s still hope to see this beautiful animal live many more centuries if not millennia on Earth, but we need to take actions now.  Since the start of the 20th century, the population of wild African elephants declined from 3.5million to only 415,000.  If you do the math, that’s an average of 26,411 wild elephants that died or have been killed each year since 1901. 26,411!!! WWF estimates that 20,000 is the number of wild African elephants being killed each year for their ivory (that’s 55 a day!). But this isn’t taking into accounts other causes such as the loss of their habitat (halved over the last 40 years, and that now is only 15% of the surface they used to have centuries ago). Now, what can you do to help the population increase again?  Take a few minutes and visit www.savetheelephants.org. Many interesting resources that need to be read, and if you ever want to get involved you can always donate to help the charity with their mission. Let’s do our best so our children, grand-children and further generations will also be able to live in a world where elephants still exist, and where those creatures live a peaceful and protected life side by side with humans. 🙏 #worldelephantday
The magic of a telephoto lens.. compressing the scene far beyond what our eyes are capable of. Often seeking to create layers & layers to visually digest. Beyond just compressing the scene into 300 or 400mm I am putting my Fstop around F11 or higher bringing more depth of field to the image. This was shot with a 70-400mm Sony lens on an A7RIII body. One of my favorite tools when trying to bring together the foreground & background because of its 15 stops of dynamic range. For me, the small subject in this really adds context to just how big these places are. . One of the many topics I love to discuss in the composition module of my workshops www.ChrisBurkard.com/workshops
Smiling from ear to ear on the last day of the first week of the #bmtmadventures women’s Alaska tour. Now that I’ve led four weeks of these tours with four different groups, I can confidently say that the coolest, most interesting, most easygoing people ever sign up to do these. Everyone was so open to the adventures like whitewater rafting, glacier trekking, and hiking. It was such an honor to get to do this again. Thanks to all of the amazing souls who came to the last frontier with me.
Do you believe art can change hearts and minds? • I was so glad to find so much public art during my partnership with @travelmanitoba & @travelmindset in Churchill. And I found out quickly that it’s not random but rather, most of it, was part of an activation organized by @seawalls_ @pangeaseed & local artist @kalbarteski. This particular mural on the ground floor walls of the former radar station, installed to detect attacks during the Cold War, references Camp 10 or what became known as “Dene Village” and the Sayisi Dene who lived in harmony with, and were dependent on, Caribou. Please look up the story because it’s so relevant to what is happening still in North America today. . This stunning mural by artist @robotkin features a quote from Elder Betsy Anderson, “There was a time when all the people and all the animals understood each other and spoke the same language.” . It’s a powerful installation but it’s only one of many. I’ll be doing a series in my Stories showing more today and I will also include them in my blog post about Churchill. 🎨 #exploremb #explorecanada #seawallschurchill #artivism // shot on @sonyalpha

So much to catch up on sharing from my partnership with @travelmanitoba & @travelmindset exploring first Winnipeg and now Churchill. The latter has been wildly better than I expected but more challenging than I imagined. I thought I knew what to prepare for since I’ve photographed animals in the wild before and I’ve seen so many photographs of polar bears in Churchill, the Polar Bear Capital of the World. Yet in the gloriously long days of summer — when so many wildflowers blanket the ground and berries of all colors and sizes fill the leafy bushes that lay low to the earth — the bears are lazy and prone to napping far from people. 400mm and up lenses are what I’d recommend if you’re coming up at this time of year for photography. Or you can simply enjoy wildlife viewing and not stress out over wildlife photography. It’s similar with the Beluga Whales that come to visit Hudson Bay and the Churchill River. A dSLR & underwater housing are what you should pack to get the best photos of the whales. If you have neither, you should still visit! It’s such a special season, summer, with all the colors and the long hours of daylight. The staff of @lazybearexpeditions have come up with so many ways to explore that ensure your safety and the safety of the animals, while still providing incredible opportunities to appreciate the diversity of this part of Northern Manitoba. It’s a place where you’ll be reminded that nothing man can create is as wondrous as what nature has given us. #exploremb #explorecanada
“Every piece of Alaska sang to me. I remembered every curve in the trails, every tree in the forest. It was familiar to me, comfortable. The more I thought about leaving it, the less I liked the idea." - Summer Lane
Creating illustrations for a kids book was so much harder than I envisioned. We started by taking some of my favorite images... mixed it with a bit of wild imagination & partnered with an amazing Artist to bring it to life.  My favorite part was adding all the hidden critters for kids to find throughout. @mcclellan_art was the genius behind the artwork in my children’s book ‘The Boy Who Spoke to Earth’ . .  Thanks to all those who supported this on Kickstarter & for those who share it with their kids today! It has since gone on to win awards & become available at most National Parks.

welcome to jurassic park 🦕 | i’m constantly in awe of this world and the time it took to carve out sights like this. what are some places that leave you speechless?
Two hours earlier, we were surrounded by 500 people on an overcrowded beach. We then decided to drive to the mountains, just 45min south, in order to find peace. That’s the beauty of Asturias. #peaksofeurope
Another unpublished image from the ‘Cradle Of Storms’ trip in the Aleutians years ago for Surfer Magazine. The setup in my eyes was the closest thing I’ve found to a perfect photography studio outdoors as I’ve ever seen. Perfect soft light, a perfect tide, no wind, a rising swell & a playful right hander with an end section that kept us entertained for hours. It may have been the 6 days of fog, sideways rain and Katabatic winds that made us extra excited this day.. but I’d like to think it was the fact the the Volcano finally came out to say hello. My palms were sweating the entire session.. I knew every shot was pretty special. I think I checked to make sure I had a memory card and battery in my camera at least 10 times.  @a_gray hits the lip while @joshmulcoy paddles back out
It’s one thing to witness this kind of view, but the happiness that comes after hiking for hours in thick fog and eventually emerging above the clouds to see glowing mountains in the distance is almost indescribable. That evening in the French Pyrenees will be remembered for years to come. >> @lolosjohan

Goodbye California, hello Texas! - After a year of living in Los Angeles, @anna.everywhere & I have decided to move on. While I was surprised at just how much I ended up enjoying LA, we've decided it’s just not for us long-term. It’s a bit too crowded, a bit too expensive, and a bit too dry. - So we’re hitting the road again, this time for a temporary move to #austin, Texas. We’ll be there for a few months before moving on to our ultimate destination, which I’ll keep secret for now (just for fun). 😎 - I thought I’d be able to slow down and plant some roots somewhere, but we seem to just keep moving regardless. Maybe this is the curse of being nomadic. That after moving so much, over so many years — what’s the big deal with moving once more? I guess moving once a year is better than once every few months, so there’s still hope! - Anyone have tips they want to share about Austin? I hear we need to try some BBQ... 🥩
Instagram is not always meant to be pretty. At what point do we become apart of the solution instead of the problem? I hate to preach on this platform because I strongly believe in personal accountability, and people’s rights to govern themselves, but seeing a scene like this in a spot that is seriously one of the most beautiful gems of a swimming hole breaks my heart and honestly ticks me off. If everyone we saw at this swimming hole picked up a bag of trash that was left here, the entire trailhead would have been clear. It’s beyond time for everyone to leave no trace, and if you see someone else has, use a free hand and clean up what you see. I’m the first one to admit there’s been times in my life I’ve made an excuse not to pick up trash and have just been mad it’s there, but in those times I was just as guilty as the people who lazily left it in the first place. Whether it’s regarding trash, or life in general, we have to stop acting like the problems we see around us are someone else’s to deal with, and start being the change we want to see.
the open road, good tunes, and plenty of snacks - recipe for a great weekend 🙌🏼
Perched high above Machu Picchu, wearing the ‘community poncho’ (which I bought from a local Quechua woman in the market and we all used for our photos!) from last year’s Peru tour. It was so much fun I couldn’t wait to return, so we’re doing it again this year! If you missed it last year, now’s your chance to come with us on this coed tour. Click the link in the bio to learn more! Because there’s SO MUCH more!
I dedicated the first 13 years of my career to shooting nothing but Surfing. During that time I saw what I would like to think were some pretty incredible Waves in some pretty surreal locations. But nothing will Come close to the 15 days we spent on this small Island in the North Pacific that is known as the birthplace of storms. I think about it a lot and every time I watch the film we made ‘The Cradle of Storms’ it brings me right back. .  @benweiland @joshmulcoy @a_gray @petedevries
Just out here doing Texas things 😊🙌🏼 | With something to offer for everyone, you never run out of things to do in Austin. I knew the bbq would be good, but I had no idea there were so many fun places to explore outdoors during the day as well as incredible nightlife once the sun goes down. See you soon, Austin! @VisitAustinTX #trueaustin #ad
A Shelter from the Storm. There’s a reason we are drawn to try and exist in environments we aren’t built to.
Want to be there or want to run away? •• @lolosjohan
These are the towers that made the park famous, on arguably the most impressive trek in Patagonia. This is on day 8 of the hike because I believe in saving the best for last! We’ve got fewer than half of the spots left on the women’s tour here in March, plus penguins, horses, and glaciers. Hit the link in the bio to join!
I’m thrilled to be back in Canada, in partnership with @travelmanitoba & @travelmindset, to explore Winnipeg and Churchill. Summer is in full swing here and the city of Winnipeg is full of parkland where live music can be heard echoing in the trees, the sound of children laughing is a balm to my spirit and the @cmhr_mcdp is always visible from where we have been staying at The Forks. I’ve wanted to visit this museum since I got the press release about its opening and it didn’t disappoint. It’s that structure visible through the trees just over the shoulder of the statue of Gandhi which was gifted to the museum in 2004 by the Government of India. Just as it was said, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world;” so too is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights asking all who visit it to acknowledge that while mistakes have certainly been made in the past - now we have a chance to change things. If we each take personal responsibility for the protection and advancement of human rights here in Canada and around the world... . Maybe we will see the better world we all hope for. It starts within us and we each hold a portion of the power that is needed to make a difference. . Really enjoyed the museum and feel only one regret in visiting - that I didn’t have one entire day to spend inside. I think that’s the minimum that is required in order to truly take in, and be changed by, all you can learn within the walls of the museum. #exploremb
This is my second summer spent in that truck, and I have to say I still have to find a road that will give it a hard time. Absolute freedom while traveling around Europe. Already 40,000km traveled, 16 countries visited, and not a single break down nor flat tire (knock on wood). Thanks to the guys at @toyota.europe for trusting me as their 4x4 ambassador, and for allowing me to access to some pretty remote and less taken roads!  And thank you guys for your insane feedback and amazing response to my new project @lolosjohan. I’m excited to see so many of you were waiting for something fresh and unique on Instagram. I hope I’ll fulfill your expectations :)
Mirrored lenses to show ma nature how pretty she is. - Thank you @costasunglasses for creating plant based sunnies.

Lakes, glaciers, dramatic mountains, grizzly bear paw prints, and more wild blueberries than I could eat - this is how I will always think of Alaska. This is from day four of an 8-day hike in the backcountry from last summer, and now I’m exploring the Talkeetnas on another 8-day backpacking adventure! While Denali is the most popular and most famous park in Alaska, this state is huge and there's so much more to see. The best part is you don't have to take a cruise, you can drive! We got here via Anchorage with @alamorentacar #alamodrivehappy #ad
{ad} As a Francophile, there are certain French products I try to make sure I never run out of. One of those things is @LilletUS Blanc and Rouge. I discovered the brand while visiting France early in my career and it was pretty much love at first sip - which is why I’m glad to now be working with them. Whether I’m with family, traveling or at home in Los Angeles - I make sure I always have a few bottles of Lillet. It’s a great starter for easy summer cocktails. I’ll take it to the beach like I did here, bring it to the pool in our building, or take it as a hostess gift. After all, some of my favorite people love all things French as much as I do. To see where else I’ve enjoyed Lillet this summer, always responsibly, check out my blog post and the video linked in my profile. . Have you had Lillet? What’s your favorite recipe? . I love simply combining Lillet Blanc or Rouge with Elderflower-infused Tonic Water and some fresh fruit or cucumber. 🍓🥒 #lilletmoment
I think I found paradise in Austin 🏝 | It’s amazing the things you find when you least expect it. This natural pool was created when the dome of an underground river collapsed from erosion thousands of years ago. It’s a pretty surreal experience being somewhere that has undergone such extreme change over the years @VisitAustinTX #trueaustin #ad
Do you like modern architecture? • I can never really get enough of The Getty Center. It’s like the MET was in New York for me, an endlessly fascinating source of inspiration that I look at a bit differently every time I visit. LEED-certified and designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier - it is like a beacon on a hill at the edge of the Santa Monica Mountains. Just one of the many legacies left behind by eccentric J. Paul Getty, the millionaire oil tycoon and philanthropist. From the road it looks almost small at times, with half of most of the buildings that make up the site hidden underground, in order to comply with height restrictions; but when you start to read about how it was constructed or you see aerial photos - it’s clear how big it is. 16,000 tons of travertine stone from Italy cover some of my favorite parts of the complex. The panels are fascinating because, having been split along the natural grain, they reveal fossilized leaves, feathers and branches. It’s all so modern and yet so grounded once you take the time to look closely. Certain vignettes from Getty Center are cliché and have been shared millions of times. I’ve included a few of them in a blog post that will publish this weekend if you’re curious to learn more. But I liked the organic-meets-modern vibe of this trellis near the cafes. It appeals to my love of leading lines and the play of light and shadow. It is, as my friend from back east @jaybwilsonphotonyc says... #alanament 😊
Dumbest thing I’ve ever done for a pic. #butthinkofthelikes #imnotcoldyourecold  PC: @mountainpooper
Early morning paddles at one of my favorite spots in Austin 🏙 | Texas is known for their amazing bbq and lively music scene, but what I’ve come to realize after visiting is that Austin has so much more to offer. It’s one of the most fun cities I’ve ever been to. If you’re looking for  an outdoor adventure, craving some Tex-Mex, or ready for a night out on the town, this is definitely the place for you. It completely surpassed my expectations and I can’t wait to go back! @VisitAustinTX #trueaustin #ad
The cherry on top of Marathon Mountain, plus the two moose we saw. I’ll never get over seeing moose in the wild.
Raise your hand if you like giraffes 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ I basically have to raise both arms and somehow my legs because I’ve still never gotten over the wonder of the first time I ever saw a giraffe and I love them still!! But fun fact - you don’t have to go all the way to Africa to see them.... . When I got back to California, Danté planned the sweetest date up in Malibu to a property that’s part rescue farm and part winery. That’s where we met this guy, Stanley. He’s a rescue from the entertainment industry where he was in movies such as The Hangover. Now he lives on the most beautiful piece of land with rolling hills, ancient trees and even petroglyphs from Indigenous people that pre-date this country as a country. Stanley is SO CUTE but I also enjoyed just being up there in that part of Malibu, inland from the water, learning about this state that’s my new home and tasting wine with my love. The concrete jungle has its pros but I don’t miss any of the cons. I am so grateful to live in a big city that’s less than an hour’s drive from places which feel an entire world away from city life. . Thank you for taking this photo @dante.vincent & treating me to a meet cute with @a_giraffe_named_stanley 🙏🏼😘
@lolosjohan // Exactly 5 years ago I bought a one-way ticket to Australia without any other plan. It happened that it was also a one-way ticket to a complete and unexpected new life. The life of being a travel photographer.  Since I embraced this new career, I’ve been fortunate enough to have a large audience to share my work with, and many of you ask me questions about a specific place I visited in the past, or ask for general advice about photography.  I’ve been putting a lot of thoughts recently about why Instagram should keep being a special place for travelers and creators. When I started as lebackpacker, I could find so much inspiration on the app, and every image I was posting about my travels in Australia and New Zealand seemed to inspire others too.  The reality today, at least from my point of view, is that people scroll down their feed as a daily habit and an image needs to be impactful enough in less than a second if it wants to attract the viewer’s attention. Because of that race for strong images, we creators want to make sure we’re getting the best out of the content we post, therefore risks aren’t taken anymore and we stick to what has been proven to work well: hype spots, trendy places and all those classic Instagram photos for which I’m guilty of too.  I want Instagram to be a source of inspiration again to you, in the same way it has been to me when I started 5 years ago. I don’t want to create photos that will be seen 0.5sec only, I want to create images that will make people stop scrolling, and read the story behind. I want to share tips, advices and all sorts of stories that might be relevant to some people. Behind most of my photos, there’s hours of research, of planning, of Googling about how to get to a spot or how long does a hike to a peak take. And I thought that all these info might interest some of you if I compiled them all in one single place.  This is why I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new project
one of the best parts of the outdoors is finding beauty around every corner @fjallraven_na @getoutmoretour #fjallraven #natureiswaiting
It’s been a while since I’ve really gotten to know you so share with me, please, where are you from? How did you come to be following me? Tell me something about yourself! . I used to live in New York City, before that I was nomadic and now I live in Los Angeles! I love California so much that I’m truly grateful to be calling the state home. As much as I love traveling, and I LOVE traveling, it’s wonderful to live somewhere that I actually want to be and actually look forward to exploring. So it’s been nice to be home for a while since the project in England. Next up, I’ll be heading to Manitoba to better understand what’s happening with their polar bear and beluga whale population! . This photo — can you spot the Hollywood Sign? — is by my partner @dante.vincent Check out his feed for more incredible photos from Los Angeles.
Bringing a whole new meaning to #nofilter when you're drinking the purest water on Earth. Each time I drink glacial water I feel the need to announce, 'this water is like 10,000 years old!' because I can't get over how cool that is! This is the Root glacier - one of dozens of glaciers I saw during last year's adventure in Wrangell St. Elias National Park. This is an easy one that you can access from town without needing to fly in or hike for multiple days. We got here via Anchorage with @alamorentacar #alamodrivehappy #ad
there’s something about hiking and exploring that brings people together. those moments spent outside bring us together in a way that nothing else can. that’s why i couldn’t be more excited to join @fjallraven_na and @backpackermag for the @getoutmoretour here in virginia. it was so awesome to be surrounded by people from all over who share my passion for the outdoors and were ready to hit the trail for a day of adventure at floydfest. check out my story for all the behind the scenes action! #fjallraven #natureiswaiting
I have to admit that wherever I went along Portugal’s coastline, the scenery took my breath away.  #peaksofeurope

I’m so excited to be back in the backcountry in Alaska! This is from a bush plane out to the middle of nowhere in Wrangell St. Elias National Park in Alaska. I went with two perfect strangers to hike for 8 days in the backcountry. Thankfully one of those strangers is now back with me taking a group of adventurous women through Alaska! This flight was taking us from A to B but they do scenic flights as well if you just want to get a bird's eye view of this stunning National Park. It's an easy drive east from @alamorentacar in Anchorage to the park entrance for a side of Alaska that most people don't see! #alamodrivehappy #ad
What was the last really good flight experience that you had? . I’ve always had great experiences as a @virginatlantic customer which is why I was happy to #collab with them for this trip to England. I prefer to only ever do sponsored content for brands and businesses I already know and love and will continue to do so after I’ve been paid to. . We had a delicious experience in the Virgin Clubhouse at SFO and a fun, sleep-filled direct flight over to Manchester in Business. It was the best way to start a busy trip, arriving having beat jet lag. I love this photo that @aidamollenkamp was able to get just above MAN of those green fields of Northern England. . The six of us then explored Manchester & beyond. Jessica aka @bontraveler went to York, I went to Liverpool as you know, then Aida and @jchongstudio explored the Lakes District while @vagabond3 & @ariellevey explored Wales. The idea of this campaign was to show how many unique itineraries there are using @visitmanchester as your home base. I hope you enjoyed following along! I know I got so many ideas for future trips to England and I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the trip. ✈️ #livefromvirgin
Morocco’s Blue Pearl, the ancient city of #chefchaouen. 🇲🇦 - This is the view from an old Spanish mosque on the mountainside above. From here you can see the “blue city” is really blue & white!
The less famous yet incredible Cirque de Troumouse in the French Pyrenees, shot from a drone. I had to wait two hours for the thick fog to go away and the rain to stop before being able to witness the magic of this place.  @djiglobal #mavicpro
Dear Last Frontier, there’s nowhere quite like you. This is from this week’s #bmtmadventures trip in Alaska where we saw numerous glaciers, whales, puffins, and seals all in one day. Spectacular is an understatement! (📷: @jfur07)
I only needed to share five posts from my trip to Manchester and Liverpool but I’ve kept going because there’s so much I can share. I was so surprised by both cities! I took the train from Manchester to Liverpool in order to attend the opening weekend of the @liverpoolbiennial, and it was great! I also enjoyed finding art all around the city. In the case of this scene from the Georgian Quarter at sunset, I nearly tripped over the art here because I was so glued to the show going on in the sky. (That happens a lot.) Such pretty colors that night! But the pile of suitcases and boxes - or cases - are a work of art by John King, commissioned by the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. It was completed in 1998 and each part of the larger whole represents someone famous who has a tie to Liverpool. Charles Dickens and Sir Paul McCartney are two of the more well known people represented in ‘A Case History’ at Hope Street and Blackburn Place. It’s a permanent piece so there’s no rush to see it but the Biennial itself only runs till 28 October. If you attend, make sure not to miss the show at @tateliverpool and @the_bluecoat. Those were my favorites! 🇬🇧 in #collaboration with @lovegreatbritain @visitliverpool_ @visitmanchester #itallstartsinmanchester #lovegreatbritain #lb2018 #itsliverpool #shotoniphonex
Sorry @jay
Welcome to the Grand Canyon of the Pacific! Waimea Canyon on the island of #kauai is 10 miles long, and up to 3000 feet deep. Can you believe this is Hawaii?! - The colorful mix of red volcanic earth and green jungle is really impressive to see in person. Not to mention all the waterfalls… had a lot of fun hiking around here capturing images of this landscape. 😎
I had so much fun visiting Liverpool Cathedral in #collaboration with @lovegreatbritain @visitmanchester & @visitliverpool_ This is the view from its roof, looking out over the beautiful Georgian Quarter of the city. This was one of my favorite areas to explore by foot and while I’ve been told that it does not have more Georgian buildings than Bath, Bath’s are less concentrated in one area. So I thought Liverpool had one of the most spectacular and well preserved areas of Georgian architecture on display that I’ve seen anywhere in the world. It’s row after row of charming facades, colorful doors and overflowing window boxes. There’s also the occasional classic car to really charm the pants off even the most hard to please visitor. Now @livcathedral itself is an extraordinary structure that was started in 1904 and completed in the 1970’s. It was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott who also created Great Britain’s eponymous Red Telephone Boxes. He, of course, carved his initials into the highest spire of the roof of the cathedral which was then the highest point in all of Liverpool. Sadly he died before the structure was completed. Inside, the cathedral feels like something from a fantasy movie or a show like Game of Thrones. It’s not set up like other churches but instead features wide open areas and a scale that defies photography. You’d have to have an ultra wide angle lens to capture it all and even then it might be difficult to comprehend. Because I like architecture, I really enjoyed visiting. Of all the churches I’ve been to all over the world, this was definitely the most intriguing. 🇬🇧 #itallstartsinmanchester #lovegreatbritain #liverpool2018 #itsliverpool #tweetfromthetower #liverpoolcathedral
COMING SOON!!!! @stefanjanoski @moviemountain
No wonder why this location has been used in many movies and series. It’s just so photogenic and doesn’t look like Europe at all. But well, with such a rich landscape diversity, what does Europe actually really look like?  Shot for @toyota.europe, featuring the mighty and undying Toyota Hilux.
Is this the most beautiful place in the world? The steep emerald-green cliffs of Kauai's Na Pali Coast will take your breath away! Massive waterfalls, pristine beaches, and lush tropical valleys. It’s basically the definition of “island paradise”. 🌴 - The only way to experience this 17 mile stretch of rugged coastline is by hiking the Kalalau Trail (unfortunately it was closed due to landslides during our visit), by boat, sea kayak, or helicopter. I’m still buzzing on adrenaline from this open-door flight... - Tag a friend who’d want to join you here! 🤙 - 🚁 @jackharterhelicopters
As soon as we crossed the border from France to Spain, the first thing that caught my eye was how different the architecture can be on each side of the Pyrenees. And on this one, Spanish win big time, sorry France. #peaksofeurope
Neouvielle Nature Reserve in the French Pyrenees is truly unique. There’s actually no other place in Europe where trees grow so high (2600m). What an idyllic place, no matter what the weather is.
My mom thinks I’m special and that’s good enough for me. 🙃 #27today  PC: @ryan_burke11
LADIES.. A question for you. If I were to host a 5-7 day outdoor photography workshop in the Tetons mid-September, would you be interested in coming? If so, what would you want it to include? I’m in the process of putting one together and hope it would look something like this… -The focus would be on landscape, outdoor lifestyle, and night photography. -Camping and day hiking at a variety of scenic locations in the valley and Grand Teton National Park with a two day/one night backpacking trip thrown in the mix. -Post-processing/image critique sessions. A few of my Lightroom presets will be available to the group. -I’d likely be able to provide each person with some new backpacking gear and swag, but it would be assumed that everyone should have most of the gear needed for a one night trip into the mountains. -Small group size to maximize individual attention. -As a personal goal, I’d like to not only play the role of workshop host, but also do my best to document your experience and leave you with images of yourself that you can be excited about. - Thoughts?

One year of marriage down! It's been a wonderful journey together so far, and I look forward to what the future will bring. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, intelligent, and fun partner to share my life with. Happy anniversary @anna.everywhere! 😍

The sun beats down mercilessly, setting every color around me ablaze – and since everything is blue, I feel like I’m walking above the clouds in a mythical sky kingdom. - But this is no myth, it’s #chefchaouen. Located in Northern Morocco, the city’s signature color is a variety of calming shades of blue that lower your blood pressure in seconds. - Known as Morocco’s “blue pearl” or “blue city”, the buildings in Chefchaouen are painted using a talc or chalk-based paint that looks so beguiling. - Exploring a labyrinth of narrow blue alleyways smelling of spice, incense, flowers, and fresh oranges — was one of the highlights of my journey to Morocco. Plus it’s a photographer’s dream! - ▶️ Click the link in my profile to read my new blog post & plan your own trip!

A few randoms about me: 1. Growing up in Wyoming, I loved these flowers (Arrowleaf Balsamroots) and always imagined I’d have a big bouquet of them when I got married. 2. I have two degrees and a private helicopter pilot license. None of which I am currently using. I’m still unsure whether I’ll pursue a commercial heli license or not. 3. I started this account a few years ago and called it @roundtheworldgirl because I was going to be sailing around the world on a 1930’s schooner for two years and sharing the trip on Instagram. A few months in, the foremast of the boat broke in a sailing race off the coast of Antigua and the trip was cut short. I never bothered to change my Instagram handle.
A few million years ago, a body of water retreated. Layers of gypsum were left behind - broken down by wind and water till all that remained were fine grains of sand. Now, shimmering shapes in a constant state of change make for one of the most mesmerizing landscapes. 😍
Last ski shoot of the season and I must say, we came away with what I feel are some of the most beautiful photos I’ve taken this year. I love watching athletes perform their art on the snow and in the sky. Swipe to the right for some bts footage of Dave. @jacksonhole
Last week, I was digging through boxes of old shit and found a bag filled with a bunch of crumpled old 35mm negatives from my early days living in a van and bumming around the West Coast.  I hadn't seen them in years and thought they were gone forever.  Going through these seven year old memories, I was overtaken by a wave of nostalgia.  I was 23, broke, sunburnt and looking for something that I'd never had the time or inclination to track down. “Young, dumb, and full of cum” as Gary Busey once described a similarly naive Keanu at the onset his similar journey.
A few weeks ago, on a distant planet,  we had a party celebrating the one year birthday of @moviemountain.  My life has a had a lot chapters, from living in nyc working in fashion to, in a lurkint around the west coast in a van  and now making shit in a studio on a mountain top in Washington.  I’m so pumped on the stuff we’re working on and for everyone that’s supported us along the way.  Here’s a little video with some of characters from the first year of making stuff! @memmonz @kaikorsmo @theshelbyfoundation @timothytickle @lex.lore @j_ere_m_y  @kylestephensnow @krotchy @nightjarillustration
Early morning tours for earning turns, and later, snacks. I’m forever grateful for protected spaces to escape to, and appreciate organizations and brands that help protect and maintain these special lands. Brands like @Nature_Valley, who has committed to donating up to 3 million dollars over the next three years to the National Park Foundation (@GoParks).

A crisp sunrise/moonset. Taking this photo, I reminisced on a day around this time last year when I skied this peak with my Sweetheart. We got ourselves in a situation that could have been avoided, and both ended up setting off slides that ripped down the face and poured over the 200ft cliff ban below (thankfully either of us were caught). Then, once in the “safety” of the trees, I skied right up to a mountain lion who was wandering through the forest... a whole separate story. Being deathly afraid twice in a day is certainly a shock to the system, and a reminder that these places are as powerful as they are beautiful. Stay safe out there my friends.  P.S. Can anyone name this mountain? @jacksonhole . . . . . . . #aroundtheworldpics #optoutside #passionpassport #instagoodmyphoto #wildernessculture #nakedplanet #liveyouradventure #earthofficial #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #earthfocus #beautifuldestinations #liveoutdoors #awesomeearth #usinterior #keepitwild #adventureculture #stayandwander #thegreatoutdoors #tourtheplanet #unpackadventure #wyoming #neverstopexploring #warrenjc #bpmag #grandtetonnationalpark #buckmountain #backcountryskiing

Over the past few days the news out of Lombok has been heartbreaking. Earthquake after earthquake is rocking this beautiful island full of beautiful people. I wanted to help but didn’t know how. My girls @mylifesatravelmovie and @glographics are on the ground in Bali and are fundraising to help those in need on Lombok. If you feel called to contribute, hit the link in my bio. Even just a few dollars helps!
I glimpsed this view for maybe 3 seconds. 2 was spent taking a picture out the plane window which left 1 second of just taking it in. There is never enough time to appreciate these places.. ever. . Somewhere out beyond Dutch Harbor in the no-mans land of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. Shot on assignment for @conservationorg
30MPH winds + a $6 kite from the nearest Walmart made for one of the most entertaining afternoons. I took hundreds of photos during a two day visit to White Sands and was obsessed with the simplicity of the landscape and how fun it was to play with colors later in @Lightroom (my favorite editing tool). - I was recently asked by @AdobeStudents to partner with them and create a preset (which will be available for free download!) to help others get acquainted with using Lightroom presets. They’re running a competition where you can post your edited shots to IG with the tags #lrsummercontest and @AdobeStudents for a chance to win $$$! Details and download link in my story!
