A Wild Notion...

After taking photos for about 2 years now, I summoned the courage to build a website in order to tell a story through imagery. I believe photos speak best when used with writing. The goal of this blog is to document my ending adolescence and the transition into adulthood.  All with my trusty camera in hand. Here's a bit about me.

 Hiya. This is me, Sean Collier. Good to meet ya.

 My trusty 1995 GMC Vandura. You'll get familiar with this adventure mobile very quickly. This is what keeps me stoked to be on the road. She's also very photogenic. #vanlife!

 My girlfriend,    Avrie   . My most frequent travel companion. You'll get used to her.

 I'm a huge fan of sweet adventure mobiles, particularly vans. My favorite part about them besides photographing and traveling in them is the rad people you meet on the road. A group of college students were living in this modified bus traveling the country.

 I shoot a ton of film. Here's one of my favorite photos shot on film with Ektar 100.

 Most of my trips revolve around finding waves. I got hooked on surfing around 4 years ago.

 I love meeting rad people and being able to connect with them through hitting the road and finding a place to sleep for the night. Pictured here is my van with my buddy    James Barkman's    not-so-trusty rig.  The clash of the vans!

 Some of my photos and writings were recently included in Gestalten's rad coffee table book titled Off the Road. It's full of a ton of crazy campers and awesome people traveling the world. You'll want this on your bookshelf. Check it out    here.

 The format of this blog will consist of a set of photos (digital and film) taken from a particular event/trip with some writing telling about how it all went. My hope is to give readers a little taste of my passion and what I spend my time doing. My hope is to have at least one new blog post up every month, so make sure you bookmark this page and check back in often.  I've been crazy inspired by other people's creativity, so I'm hoping I can do the same to others and pass on the stoke. Carry on!  ( Photos of myself snapped by   Julian Herren  )
