Katrin Braga is a young inspiring photographer from Iceland who is currently jumping back and forth in between Vancouver and her homeland. She loves traveling and photographing her experiences along the way. Enjoy the words and images by Katrin below…

As an Icelander me and my friends often go on road trips together to experience the beautiful scenery of our homeland. In this trip we decided to visit Krysuvik which is known for it’s geothermal fields, mud pots and colorful soil. The hikes there are short and breathtaking.

Based on the West Coast, Alana Paterson is a Canadian photographer known for her notable work with lifestyle publications and brands worldwide. Take a look through some of her recent images and words below…

I took this trip with my good bud and favourite stylist Mila Franovic. It was meant to be a relaxing holiday to celebrate the end of my seasonal work year on my family farm… and Mila wanted to tan. But of course we ended up making it a working holiday. A stylist and a photographer travelling together could never just chill. So we shot an editorial down there for this french surf magazine, Desillusion and also this photo-set for you all.

Well Travelled: Los Angeles, California

Check out the latest Well Travelled I worked on with Herschel Supply and Rachael Wright

HSC_Well_Travelled_banner

With winter creeping in, photographer Rachael Wright escaped to the West Coast to avoid grey skies and falling temperatures. Experience her trip to California with the words and images captured below.

I’m thinking about moving to LA at some point, so this trip was kind of a reconnaissance mission to see if my New York sensibilities could handle laidback LA living. I’m in love with the light in California – they don’t call it the Golden State for nothing – so it wasn’t too hard to win me over.

Los Feliz and Silverlake are great, and Echo Park delivered some very strong tacos (Guisados – big thumbs up) but my heart belongs to the Westside, specifically Venice, with its palm trees, epic sunsets and the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu…

Well Travelled: Kalalau Trail, Hawaii.

Herschel Supply Well Travelled

The 11 mile trail edges beautiful cliffs and provides a scenic view of waterfalls and steep narrow valleys leading to the wild ocean. Take a moment to view images and words from Caley Vanular below.

The journey starts off with a well travelled two mile hike in mud… Watch your step.

Take a break at the first beach.

Have a snack and soak up some rays.

Watch the power of the ocean.

Double knot your laces, you are in for a long walk.

The endless path ways, rugged river crossings and step valleys below are sure to keep your mind racing as you walk the 11 mile trail.

The long and testing trail eventually comes to an end in a big open oasis.

Wild green grass and vibrant red mud welcomes you to the start of paradise.

Finally. Your sore muddy feet have made it to paradise, Kalalau Beach. Take off your shoes, jump in the ocean and sleep in the caves. Stay as long as you can, this is beach is just the beginning…

Well Travelled: Berlin, Germany

To truly grow as a person you must leave the comforts of your home and explore. Join Stefen Ursulan as he travels with three friends to Berlin to find what they are looking for… Take a moment to view Stefans words and images below…

I chose to go on this trip with three of my travelling cohorts, of whom share mutual artistic interest. We set off hoping to broaden our cultural perspective, bring life to European history and explore the photographic potential that lies within European textures and scape.

Herschel Supply: W5&H – Chris Burkard

Herschel Supply W5&H

Already a Senior Staff Photographer at twenty-six, Chris Burkard was quick to carve a name for himself in Action Sports photography. Read about Chris below…

HSC_CHRISBURK

1. Who are you?

I am Chris Burkard.. central California native, and bodysurf enthusiast..and love of the outdoors..

2. What do you do?

I am a senior staff photographer for surfer magazine… I shoot a lot of outdoor lifestyle, adventure, and tomfoolery for outdoor brands.. but I’m most known for my editorial style and landscape perspective.

3. Where do you live?

The small beach town of Pismo Beach.. its’ more known for clam chowder and sand dunes than perfect waves.

4. When are you most productive?

In the cold climates of the North Atlantic.. I have never been content with sipping down pina coladas in the south pacific.. and in some way I get a sick sense of accomplishment freezing my but off chasing elusive waves in freezing and remote places.

5. Why photography?

For me, photography just became the most perfect medium for expression, it honestly made the most sense.. I did a lot of art through high school , drawing, clay, paint.. but I hated being tied to a classroom or stuck with and easel on a cliff.. I wanted to be apart of the action.. so photography made the most sense.. it was like a perfect extension of my body.. I could take it in the surf, the mountains, and pretty much anywhere in between.

6. How did you get your start?

My first passion was for shooting landscapes.. that was all I cared about.. so when I first started I went to the desert southwest and just explored.. I eventually combined my passion for being in the water and bought a waterhousings and started shooting friends surfing.. I was sending images to Transworld Surf, and I had a photo editor that gave me some great feedback.. Eventually I was offered an internship.. and the rest is history.. I learned a lot from that experience.. it really made me think hard about how to actually contribute to magazines.. so I started tailoring my work towards editorial..and it made me think in terms of telling the story.
