We founded Part Time Vagabond Photo Adventures for a simple reason: To connect people with the cultures and environments that make the world interesting; to teach people to see in new ways; to empower people to make great photographs; and to do so using professional techniques and modern technologies. Our company goal is to provide a deep and fulfilling understanding of the places we visit through the visual documentation of photography.
I travel to inform myself; I make photos to inform others. ~ James Nachtwey
WE ARE EXPLORERS
First and foremost, we are explorers of the world. We are passionate about exploring new places, completely unlike our own homes, because the experience excites us, motivates us, and inspires us. We thrive on adventure and experience.
WE ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS
We see the world through a different lens than everyone else. The ability to show others the world through our unique perspectives becomes an important tool in educating and inspiring others. We celebrate the different and the beautiful, however we may see it. As explorers and photographers, we become better people.
WE ARE STORYTELLERS
We do more than take snapshots of a place. We delve deep to find its story; we reveal the characters who make a place unique; we follow the paths that nature, history, and culture put in front of us; and we share what we find with the world. As storytellers, we become both teacher and student.
WE ARE CONSERVATIONISTS
Without a healthy environment—both natural and cultural—humans cannot survive. As world explorers, we are the key to the vitality of both. As travelers who constantly take, it is our responsibility to also give back. We do this through a multitude of channels, including charitable giving, volunteering, storytelling, and more. We believe that we need to conserve so that there is something left for us and our children to return to in the future.
WE ARE PART TIME VAGABOND PHOTO ADVENTURES
As explorers, photographers, storytellers, and conservationists, we become better citizens of the world, well-equipped to create and share art that impacts others. Our sense of adventure takes us to realms unknown; our sense of responsibility makes us better people.
