"To travel, to experience and learn; that is to live" Tenzing Norgay
This portfolio of my photography has been produced after undertaking twenty years of adventure travel photography across six continents. It is my hope that I can inspire a few to see the world for themselves, perhaps just to pick up their camera and go for a walk, or simply to be more understanding of the amazing world in which we live. As a traveler and adventurer I am fascinated by the ability of photography to bring the unknown into the known and shed light on the more remote and fragile parts of the natural world. The emotive nature of photography has been critical in overcoming societal apathy and facilitated most of the major conservation efforts over the past century. Equally as important is its ability to highlight divergent cultures and philosophies and help foster tolerance in an otherwise intolerant world.

I am also the founder of the website http://intrepid.photos which aims to become a leading adventure photography resource centred around personal interviews with world class photographers. Sharing their thoughts, opinions, philosophy, workflow, and photographic art allows us all to enjoy their talent while learning from top performing individuals in the field. My intent with intrepid.photos is to give back to the photography community an inspirational resource with a little more depth than is provided by modern social media, having myself taken so much inspiration from other talented individuals over the past two decades.
I am a big believer in the future of blockchain based solutions for social media along with photo distribution and copyright. You can follow my thoughts and opinions on find my my blog which is published on the the Steem blockchain at https://steempeak.com/@intrepidphotos.
