***CONTEST OVER*** I know Iโ€™m a bit late but thank you so much for 30k! In celebration, I am giving away my own Canon 6D Mark I! So if youโ€™re looking to get started in photography, this is the perfect entry professional camera! All you gotta do is tag someone on this post in the comments section below ๐Ÿค— ===== I started my Instagram with the goal of it being a community of likeminded people: people who love travel and/or photography/film ๐Ÿ—บ๐Ÿ“ธ A platform to inspire others to get out there and chase their dreams, see the world, experience unique cultures, and to get out of their comfort zones. To share my journey as a 22-year-old who has a dream and is in the process of chasing itโ€ฆfailures, successes, and everything in between. ===== This whole journey started when I backpacked for 8 months around the world, living off my savings last year with no idea of what to do. I even had to ask my parents for money as I ran out of cash on the road (honesty is the best policy eh ๐Ÿ˜‚). ===== But thanks to this platform called Instagram (as much as itโ€™s a love-hate relationship), I was able to start and grow my business as a traveling freelance photographer, meet amazing people that I am proud to call friends, and I am now able to share my story to thousands, inspiring others to travel and pursue their dreams, all through what I love doing. So thank you for making all this possible and being the amazing community that you are ๐Ÿ’› ===== Give-away deets: Giveaway ends July 22 12PM EST. One comment with tag = one entry (more comments means more submissions, multiple tags in one comment is only one submission). Open to everyone worldwide (shipping not included). One battery and charger included. The body is a bit old and used but hey, itโ€™s a full frame professional camera! This give-away is not affiliated with anyone or Instagram. ===== Shot during a meet up @backpackertampan, @aronreijnders, @thewanderfullyfe and I hosted in Bali!

Kampung Warna-Warni Jodipan is a small village located in East Java, Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ The name loosely translates to โ€œJodipan, the colourful village" ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ ====== Kampung Jodipan was once a slum area and was even one of the 11 most rundown villages in Indonesia. In 2016, a group of PR students from Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang began to paint the village in an attempt to clean up the village and educate the residents about sanitation. After three tons of paint, the university students were able to transform Kampung Jodipan from being one of the poorest villages of Indonesia into a blooming tourist attraction, increasing the quality of life for the villagers and economy of the village. The residents at Kampung Jodipan are now keeping the village clean and tourist-friendly together ๐Ÿ˜Š ===== Itโ€™s beautiful when people come together and do something positive isn't it? ๐Ÿ’›

Did you know that there are only 3-4,000 elephants left in Thailand? ๐Ÿ˜Back in 1850 there used to be more than 100,000. Tragically, these elephants are now classified as endangered due to hunting (tusks) and the destruction of their natural habitat. Elephants are furthermore unethically treated as elephant riding is a huge tourist attraction. These beautiful creatures that God created don't deserve that. ===== Thankfully, organizations such as @cmelephanthome helps rescues elephants and gives them a place to roam free, while providing tourists an opportunity to bathe them and feed them without riding. Next time you consider doing an animal tour, do some research and make sure the company you go with is ethical! #chiangmaielephanthome

Letโ€™s get deep. Over the past few days, I have been going through my old photos and as I went through them, the memories I've made over the past year came flooding in. The people that I met, friendships I've made, places I visited, things Iโ€™ve experienced, food I ate, adventures I went on, all of it came back to me. ===== Although it may not seem like it on Instagram, the past few months have been a very challenging season in my life. Yes I was living life to the fullest, but I also experienced stress, anxiety, loss, and sadness, just as a human would. I wonโ€™t get into details, but I believe that it is through these tribulations that we are able to learn about ourselves, and we can use these experiences to grow. ===== Reflecting on who I am today, I was able to see how much Iโ€™ve grown as a person over the past year. It was my experiences, both good and bad, that helped me grow as a person. I think in todayโ€™s society, itโ€™s rare for us to take the time to sit down, think deeply, and reflect on who we are, where we were, and who we want to be. Society has got us in a rut, a routine, a schedule that our lives are based upon and we rarely have time for ourselves to meditate and self-reflect. So my challenge to you is to take some time to reflect on who you are and where you want to be. To see how far you've come. To challenge yourself. What steps are you going to take to be the person you want to be?

Exploring the deserted desert roads of Dubai ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿซ Shot on spontaneous sunrise mission with @danielfuze and @who.sane. After visiting Dubai 5 times, I finally got the chance to hit these roads up with a drone! Unfortunately, there were no camels there so I had to Photoshop some in ๐Ÿ˜‚ What are your thoughts on Photoshop? When does it become too much? ===== Personally, I only Photoshop to enhance the shot, i.e. removing distracting objects or add in elements that help the photo come alive. I try my best to keep the photograph as realistic as possible, so if you ever visit a place that I shot, you have to chance to see it with those conditions. For example, camels DO roam here; I was just unlucky with timing. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! ๐Ÿค— ===== Inspired by my good friend @jordhammond ๐Ÿ’›

Whenever someone asks me which countries has the best food and culture, Thailand usually comes to mind ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ I'm so excited to return to Thailand for the 4th time next week and eat more amazing Pad Thai and Thai curry! ๐Ÿ› ===== Behind the shot: last year, I saw this temple in a random YouTube video and spent hours researching where it was.

The best part was he didn't speak English and I couldn't speak Thai, so we communicated solely through hand gestures and google translate ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚

#Earth ๐ŸŒŽ We only have one. Yesterday was #EarthDay, and it was so awesome to see so many people show their love for our planet. But letโ€™s not limit ourselves to just one day of appreciation; every day should be Earth Day. I spend the majority of my days exploring this world we call home, and it sucks to see beautiful lakes and beaches polluted. So today, and every day, I encourage you to try your best to cut out unnecessary actions that harm the planet. Donโ€™t use a plastic straw ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธTake a bike to work instead if possible ๐Ÿšฒ It might not seem like the biggest difference, but collectively our actions combined can do a lot. Letโ€™s make change happen ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป ===== Behind the shot: This was shot at Assiniboine National Park in British Columbia, Canada (my home!) ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ You can either ride a helicopter in, or hike 30km (hiking is SO much more fun!). I came here solo, but ended up meeting @scottcbakken, @jamieout, and @jesseroos, and bonded with them so hard we named ourselves the Assiniboys ๐Ÿ˜‚ I miss them quite a bit. Thankโ€™s Jamie for killinโ€™ it with your 6 feet tall body or however tall you are โค๏ธ So happy you're having another kid!

I'll also be sharing some videos on my stories! Check my story to see me cliff jump and lose my GoPro ๐Ÿ˜‚ ===== Last but not least, today is Easter! I'm not the most vocal about my faith on social media but today is a day of hope and a remembrance of God's unconditional love for us. On Instagram, I aspire to show you how amazing creation is, in order to inspire you to go explore what He has made and to question a little more about life. ===== To those who have been affected by the tragic events in Sri Lanka, my heart aches for you. For reasons that we cannot fathom, God has permitted evil to exist. But at the same time, He has given a promise through Christ, that through Him, we can experience peace, hope, and love, no matter what comes our way. If you have any questions about my beliefs or my stance on this sensitive situation, please send me a DM instead of commenting ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Thank you!

First stop: Toronto ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ===== When I post a photo, I try my best to include the backstory which gave life to the photo.

Waterfalls are my favorite; they are so majestic and powerful yet peaceful and serene ๐Ÿ•Š ===== Speaking of peace, I've recently been learning that peace begins when expectations end.
