    1. But how can I stand out?
      I really love taking pictures but I think right now I need this changing point that will let my account grow so that more people can find me (like the point when you started travelling with Jack 🙂 ) I don’t want to sound like someone that thinks that it is super important to have many followers but I think its because I am kind of uninspired of my life… I just really want to start travelling but fist I have to finish school 😀
      Love from Germany :*
      Just want to tell you that you and Jack are my biggest Inspiration, your pictures are on my homework planner and when I sit in school and being bored I look at them and imaging I could be in the sunshine and out exploring 😀

  2. Wow, literally a dream come true! How did you contact companies though? Did you have to do it all professionally through email and to the right person or could you do it through social media?

  5. That is an amazing story in which you love to live! I would like to learn what kind of equipments are you using for taking photographs. It is so hard to catch the light but at the same time it is also hard to show the light you were experiencing.

  6. You said that brands / companies contact you. How do you instigate that. Do you research then than #hashtag them and wait. Im very curious about the process. You guys are amazing. I check your insta every day.

    1. Hey, no I never had to do that. I guess by my imagery, it spoke for itself, its not just about contacting them and asking to work with you, its them wanting to work with you. If your imagery is unique and has something special to it, you’ll gain followers and get noticed by companies and thats how I got work in the beginning!
      Thanks

  8. What an inspiring article! Now I know that you didn’t achieve this overnight. I have been travelling quite a bit as well and just started to realise last year that maybe I can start posting my photos to instagram and grow my influence. But currently I only have about 5800 followers! Lol. Hopefully I can achieve my dream the way you do! Thanks!

  10. Totally loving this! My partner and I are very inspired by your work and how far you have gone, as we hope for a life travelling too, but to create something at the time.

    Btw, guys, does it bother you when businesses take your pics to showcase for themselves without giving you credit?
    I’ve seen twice how a business in my island has done it and is very annoying even if they are not my pics :/
