For the last 15+ years I’ve been a location-independent photographer. This site is a personal site that covering some of topics of interest:
- Writing: Urbanism , mobility, politics, location independence
- Nomad Co-Living Leipzig
Over the last sixteen years I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel to many countries and crossed the world several times. In that time I’ve made the transition to a location independent lifestyle.
The map answers one of the most common questions that I get asked “where have you been?”
For me, it’s often more interesting to return to familiar places than to simply collect stamps in a passport.
I’ve been fortunate to spend most of my time traveling the world and documenting parts of that journey in the way that I see it. I photograph people, places, the urban and natural environment and social conditions. The early part of my travels were mainly funded from photo and video royalties.
In terms of video, over the last few years my focus has been on producing time lapse and aerial content, including aerial hyperlapse. My images and videos are available for license exclusively though Getty Images via iStockphoto: photo and video.
The desire to share what you see and experience is a natural one. After years of being caught in the social media trap, I’ve decided its time to share those thoughts in a place that isn’t constrained by censorship and isn’t designed create addiction though clickbait or triggering anger. Writing topics will include those that are of interest: Urbanism, mobility, location independence, places I visit and occasionally politics. Most importantly aim to hi-light ideas from places that I see that I find interesting and may inspire others.
Nomad Co-Living Leipzig
When I started this journey in 2006 by quitting my regular job, the idea of being a “digital nomad” didn’t really exist in the mainstream. Nevertheless it became immediately obvious that a very indulgent lifestyle was possible by letting go of normal career-focused choices, being more free about where you live and aiming towards financial independence through passive income and an asset base.
An area that is still very lacking however is that of housing for digital nomads. In the coming years I’ll be developing a Nomad’s co-living community in Leipzig, Germany that I hope will meet the needs of some who choose this lifestyle. The project will focus on collaborating to build a sustainable co-living complex designed around the needs of digital nomads based around a “baugruppen” model.
