Marianna Jamadi’s job is to be a dreamer. She is also one of the most mindblowing photographers we have come across in a while, a passionate entrepreneur at El Camino (more on that later!) and always on the hunt for unique stories for her blog Nomadic Habit.
We spoke to her about the challenges of living one’s dream, the practicalities of traveling 17 countries in one year and what cultures inspire her …

New Zealand is beautiful – even if you haven’t been there yet, we all know that much. Images of its mountains, coasts, country, and lakes saturate the internet and people rave about how clean, green, and natural everything looks. Although photos can’t possibly do its beauty justice, many photographers try of course. As a New Zealander, I can say that Crystal Brindle’s photos are some of the first I’ve seen …

City trips are among my favourite journeys. Arriving without a plan or a map, just strolling around, chatting up local folk, asking them for recommendations and directions, following cool-looking people around, until I find the places I like. Diving headfirst into the subcultures of a city, rather than following the top ten list of some travel guide – being a real explorer. Don’t you feel the same?
If you do, you might take …

When many months ago someone commented on Molly Steele’s Instagram “How are you always in the coolest places?” and she answered “Because it is both my priority and my salvation”, my interest was piqued – and I bet yours will be, too.
If you think landscape photography is boring, it’s because you haven’t seen Molly’s work yet. Her outdoor pictures, often taken during long solo hikes, are wildly personal and intimate. They speak of the sheer joy of waking …

‘New is always better’ – or, at least, so they say. Let me in on a little secret – they are wrong. Sometimes used or second-hand is just as good (or even better). For example, when you compare a brand-new dress from a retail chain, which somehow every other girl on the street is sporting too, to a unique vintage dress from the 1970s; or that veteran road trip-proven van with all necessary …

Happy Valentine’s month! Whether your little eyes light up with love hearts over V-Day or whether you hate it with a fiery passion, it’s hard to miss this red card and candy holiday. In fact, I’m pretty sure that as soon as the January sales bite the dust, retailers wheel out the satin hearts and cuddly bears to remind people of their next big expenditure lest they forget this loved …

How do you keep your travel photography original? It’s close to impossible to answer that question with a few words, but Anton Charushin doesn’t need words to do that. He just does headstands. A lot of them.
Anton, 27, from Russia got into breakdancing in high school where he realised that doing headstands is pretty good for your blood circulation and general wellbeing. Well, and then there were the creative benefits. Tagging …

I have never been on a cold weather holiday. Every January, as we enter the depths of bleak mid-winter here in the UK, my little brain awakens from its gentle festive fugue of eat, sleep, drink, repeat, and starts to plan how best to flee the country to get some much needed Vitamin D. Occasionally I have allowed myself to get seduced by the idea of romantic treks through pine …

For years, photographers have been drawn to Namibia‘s northwest – to a community living among the majestic Makalani palms at Palmfontein: the Himba. They invite visitors to see how they live and learn about their proud and ancient culture. From skin care to clothing and perfume, many Himba continue traditional practices that have remained unchanged for generations. Yet, they are becoming familiar with modern lifestyles through the visitors. They are …

I thought that when I saw a photo of the duo behind 365 docobites via the brilliant Humans of Amsterdam Facebook page (which of course is influenced by the mahoosively popular Humans of New York) that was the first time I’d heard of the project.

With Debra from Humans of Amsterdam.

But a quick navigation around their website and I realised I’d seen some of their work before on Sailing HR’s Facebook …
