  • @kirstenalana

    Photographer Kirsten Alana


      My Instagram in one tweet: I tell stories using pictures and captions that fill in the details an image alone can't tell. I try to bring my followers along with me! 
      Favorite place I’ve visited: I could never choose just one unfortunately. My list of favorites plural, includes places like Paris, Scottsdale, Big Sur in California,  the Costa Brava in Spain, Morocco, Scotland, Umbria in Italy, the city of Melbourne, Mauritius...
      One place I want to visit: I've already booked a trip to my top place, for June: Iceland. But after that probably Ireland or New Zealand. 
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: My boyfriend (@dante8 on Instagram), he's the first person I've ever traveled with who I truly feel in sync with. We want the same things, we like the same style of travel, we're both not jaded and always so joyful to be traveling and we both love taking pictures so neither of us is ever annoyed when the other one wants to pull the car over to take yet another photo!

    Photographers Dave Bouskill and Debra Corbeil


      Our Instagram in one tweet: Showcasing the world's most extraordinary destinations through photographs that capture the spirit and energy of the places we visit.
      Favorite place we’ve visited: Antarctica was an amazing destination. It was a dream to make it to our 7th continent and to explore a place that is virtually untouched by humans was humbling. The landscape is massive. Everything just seemed so big and made you feel so small. The glaciers are mammoth, the icebergs are enormous and the whole experience seemed very surreal. Penguins were curious, whales surfaced right beside our kayaks and zodiacs to take a closer look at we paddled past seals basking in the sun on ice floats. It felt like we were in a movie. 
      One place we want to visit: Rwanda has been at the top of our list forever. We really want to see the gorillas there. We are hoping to make our way there this year, but I think it is more realistic to plan for next year. We will go there one day. 
      If we could travel with only one person for the rest of our lives: Each other. We've are lucky enough to have found our perfect travel and life partner in each other. We realize how fortunate we are to have found a common passion

    Photographers Jillian Mann and Kyla Trethewey


      Our Instagram in one tweet: We are best friends who sold everything that didn't fit in our suitcases to travel the world and try living for a living.
      Favorite place we’ve visited: There is a little place in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua called the Maderas Village that is our favorite place. It's a place where incredible people come together to create and collaborate. It is welcoming, beautiful, and a little bit of heaven off the beaten path.
      One place we want to visit: We find ourselves constantly dreaming about Iceland, we can't imagine a more incredible and varied landscape to photograph.
      If we could travel with only one person for the rest of our lives: The obvious answer would be each other and that might just be how things play out. It's hard though living like we do, you are constantly meeting and leaving incredible and inspiring people. Sometimes we wish we could bring everyone we love with us as we move along the map.

    Photographer Matt Gee


      My Instagram in one tweet: I try to share beautiful places and fun experiences in a personal way that people can relate to.

  • @samhorine

    Photographer Sam Horine


      My Instagram in one tweet: My Instagram is a mix of travel stories and my everyday life in New York City.
      Favorite place I’ve visited: It's hard to pick a favorite place, anywhere new is interesting to me. I had a really great time traveling to South Africa last fall - between going on Safari and exploring Cape Town it was a fantastic adventure. 
      One place I want to visit: I'd love to travel through South America and ultimately end at Antartica. 
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: Not sure - I really like traveling alone because I get to do exactly what I want to do and never feel bad because I'm taking hours to make a photograph while someone else waits! But anyway - yeah too many ways I could go here on this unrealistic question as there are many people I really enjoy traveling with for a variety of reasons but wouldn't want to pick just one.

      My Instagram in one tweet: I tell stories using pictures and captions that fill in the details an image alone can't tell. I try to bring my followers along with me! 
      Favorite place I’ve visited: I have many favorite places because each place is in my mind, from the amazing temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Skye in Scotland, Switzerland, Australia or any with great landscapes.
      One place I want to visit: Although it’s hard to believe, I've never been to California. It is one of my priorities to visit Yosemite Park, Joshua Tree or Sequoia National Park.
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: My mother–she’s too old for hiking and explore as I do but since childhood she’s taught me to value life and respect nature. I would like her to live everything I visit.

    Photographer Sean Ensch


      My Instagram in one tweet: Photos from travel, adventure, nature, and underwater.
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Iceland is the most strange and unique location in the world. It has scorched lava fields, fjords, epic green mountains with massive waterfalls, glaciers, and black-sand beaches.
      One place I want to visit: Tahiti is still one of my top destinations to go just for it's pure paradise qualities, but lately I have been wanting to see the Galapagos for it's marine wildlife.
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: It would be my girlfriend, Othilie, of course. We have traveled quite a lot over the last couple years so she's been my partner in crime and is very patient while I roam around looking for photos.

      My Instagram in one tweet: Offbeat destinations, stories of transformative experiences, and a taste of the sort of travel that moves the emotional needle.

      One place I want to visit: That’s a crowded field.  But Papua New Guinea comes to mind.
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: My wife, Audrey.  It’s the truth…and I’d be in hot water if I didn’t say so.

    Photographer Jennifer Young


      My Instagram in one tweet: A lifestyle and travel feed highlighting my work, experiences and passions.

  • @chrisburkard

    Photographer Chris Burkard


      My Instagram in one tweet: All I want is to inspire people to seek out and explore the wild open places this world has to offer. 
      Favorite place I’ve visited: The Faroe Islands is one of the most remote places on earth and feels like you’re stepping back in time about 250 years ago. The culture and the landscape is rugged and beautiful all at the same time. I also have a deep love for Iceland… I have been there 16 times.
      One place I want to visit: I really want to visit Patagonia. It kind of blows my mind I haven’t been there yet. I love chile but have never made it that far South and I feel like it’s a place that is kinda calling to me. I can’t wait to get down there and see those mountains!
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: I am pretty sure my wife would absolutely kill me if I didn’t mention her :) Honestly she is my best travel companion, and maybe the only person who can put up with me taking pictures all through the night. We used to travel a ton together and now with two kids it’s a little bit tougher. But I know when we get the chance we will go straight back to Iceland.

      My Instagram in one tweet: My Instagram feed is my favorite square crops of my large scale travel photography from www.stuckincustoms.com! :)
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Antarctica, which is most of my recent subject matter on Instagram.
      One place I want to visit: North Korea
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: It would be my wife Tina!  She hasn't been able to travel with me much recently because of the kids, but we always have a lot of fun when we are able to go off on adventures! :)

  • @lucylaucht

    Photographer Lucy Laucht


      My Instagram in one tweet: Bright, colorful, and I hope, transportive. I'm drawn to the pastel hues of colonial buildings, the blue tones of the sea, the way the afternoon light falls across a tiled floor.
      Favorite place I’ve visited: I'm just back from Cuba and struggling to find the right way to articulate how amazing a country it is. Havana is culturally rich but in ruins, magnificent but crumbling, relentless, gritty and quite often utterly confusing. We were met with nothing but smiles, generosity and friendly faces. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
      One place I want to visit: There's a few but Morocco is up there. And India. And I'd love to sail from Panama to Colombia via the San Blas islands. And explore more of America…the list goes on…
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: It would be my boyfriend and partner in crime, Paul @appogram. We met on a beach in Indonesia eight years ago, the holiday romance that never ended, and have been adventuring ever since. I couldn't ask for a more perfect travel companion.

  • @jewelszee

    Photographer Jewels Zee


      My Instagram in one tweet: If you love color, joy, positive vibes and crazy travel stories, @jewelszee is a must! #instahappy
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Every time I go somewhere new it becomes my favorite place for a moment! Right now I would have to say New Zealand! Sighhhh.... So sublime!
      One place I want to visit: Oh number one at the moment is the Galápagos Islands or Iceland! Oops that's two!
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: His name is James and after 21 years he is still my number one true love (we'd sneak our two daughters in too).

  • @jaredchambers

    Photographer Jared Chambers


      My Instagram in one tweet: Striving to be different from the rest.  A stream of images shot in a clean and minimal way, playing off of colors and light.
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Ireland is a really beautiful place. I loved the history there and all the friendly people. The landscapes were amazing and I loved how you would be driving along and see ruins and old stone walls everywhere, even in people’s back yards.
      One place I want to visit: I’ve been dying to do a motorcycle trip through South East Asia.
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: Jessica, my girlfriend, because she’s the greatest and because I feel that we are the same person while traveling. We love the same things and hate the same things. We had a recent vacation to Tulum and we were definitely on the same page the whole time.

  • @alexstrohl

    Photographer Alex Strohl


      My Instagram in one tweet: Crisp, stirring images from around the world with a central theme of wild, untamed and remote. Travel for those that like to get off the beaten track.
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Alaska. I only spent five days there and went 100 miles around Anchorage but what I saw was mind-blowing. Patagonia used to be my favorite place in the world but Alaska was staggeringly beautiful. I’m planning to go back there and stay for a longer time.
      One place I want to visit: Torngat Mountains National Park in Newfoundland, Canada
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: If I had to choose a travel partner for the rest of my life it would be my girlfriend. We’ve been travelling together for the past five years and we are very compatible on the road. Since we are both photographers, it’s pretty easy to decide the game plan for the day.

      My Instagram in one tweet: I use Instagram to try to inspire people to get outside, travel, and take pictures. Whether that's five miles away or around the world, it doesn't matter to me!
      Favorite place I’ve visited: Iceland has been far and away the best place I’ve visited. 
      One place I want to visit: Either the Faroe Islands or Patagonia – it’s a tie!
      If I could travel with only one person for the rest of my life: …anyone who had a good sense of humor and was okay going without a shower for a week at a time!

      One place I want to visit: Patagonia is at the top for me.
