A passion for adventure

Adventure and travel photographer Callum Snape shares his advice on social media storytelling.
Callum Snape is a new breed of travel and adventure photographer, who uses the power of social media to reach out to a rapidly growing audience. With 600,000 followers on his Instagram account, he must be doing something right, as CPN Editor David Corfield discovers…

callumsnape02a callumsnape02b callumsnape02c callumsnape02d callumsnape02eWhat comes first: the adventure or the image? Callum Snape takes a moment to ponder. “It used to be the adventure,” he reflects. “If I didn’t have that passion for travel then I wouldn’t be doing what I do now. But as I have got more experienced, it’s definitely become the image. The photo takes priority now; it absolutely must.”

Adam Jones – Marching Penguins

Adam Jones – Marching Penguins

adamjones01aThese marching king penguins on the beach were captured at Volunteer Point, about 2 hours of rough off road driving from the capital city of Stanley on East Island. If you’ve ever been to the Falklands you know the wind practically never stops blowing. The day we arrived, we were greeted with a steady 50mph wind, which made even walking an exciting adventure.

adamjones01b adamjones01cThis was my first trip to the Falkland Islands leading a private tour.
We explored several islands, mostly devoid of humans, but loaded with five species of penguins, occasionally elephant seals and orcas.

I Just Travelled 24.000km Through North America And Took Home These Incredible Pictures

I Just Travelled 24.000km Through North America And Took Home These Incredible Pictures
by Guido Diana

guidodiana01aMy name is Guido Diana and September 2016 I decided to fulfill my long life dream to travel and photograph North America. With more than 24.000 km traveled by air and road, I witnessed some of the most incredible scenery and adventures.

guidodiana01bDuring my three months of travel, I have seen the yellow aspen fall colors of Colorado, the incredible lakes of the Canadian Rockies, drove San Francisco’s Golden Gate bridge, Stood at the foot of the Grand Canyon, had an encounter with a wild grizzly bear and saw much more breathtaking views!

guidodiana01cWhat I saw in North America blew my mind, and in my opinion, this continent has some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. That’s why I want to share my 35 best shots of this trip with you.
