Who's joining?


The best part of the travel is meeting fun and interesting people coming from all over the world. People ready to share and explore. People you will probably keep in touch with after the trip. That’s why we pay special attention at the selection process to ensure teams have similar interests and affinities. Thus, previous to the travel experience, we shortly interview applicants to build teams and make the best experience for you. Don’t worry, it’s really easy ;)

Who am I?


Hello! I’m Ray Vüilsen and I share my travel and photography skills with small groups (3-8 international participants) far off the beaten tracks. We go to the most beautiful regions in the world, while you get a crash photography course for all levels (visit my Instagram). I like authentic experiences to understand local culture and to learn and exchange with them. I like to be creative, to deal with the unexpected and have fun with it. Together we explore secret natural locations away from tourists and we enjoy and are grateful for this privilege. We care for the environment and the development of local communities. We meet extraordinary local people and take unbeaten paths. We share and learn. We live.




Philosophy


My concept of travelling is far away from the classical one. It’s much more close to how friends (good friends!) would travel: I have a plan and I suggest many options for activities, accommodation and restaurants, but you choose and make the decisions. This makes each trip a different and unique experience. As you guessed, photography is an awesome tool to make this experience even more powerful! All through the travel, I’m going to teach you how to make amazing photos and create meaningful stories, no matter how experienced you are or how expensive is your camera. From a luminous sunset to a colorful chameleon, from an inspiring portrait to a shooting star. In the last 10 years, I have explored with groups of 4 to 8 people really cool places such as Peru, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, the Caribbean, Lapland, Brazil and Greece... and many others! I love meeting different people to have a good time together and enjoy life. And I also care about where we go and who we meet, looking for an impact but leaving no trace.
