Sleeping on mountains tops my bucket list: Jannik Obenhoff

“Travel is  fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness., and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.” – Mark Twain

What were the 3 most memorable experiences you had in the year 2018?

  • Roadtripping through Norway with my best friend and shooting in a lot of places I always dreamed of photographing. 
  • Visiting Shanghai. Usually, I only do landscape photography but when I had the opportunity to visit this mega city it was so refreshing to shot some urban stuff and get creative again.
  • And for me, personal one of the most memorable experience was also my graduation from school. 🙂

Taiwan. Every hotel I stayed was perfect. Amazing food, amazing location and amazing buildings. Also the people in Taiwan were always super friendly. 

We surely know you’re travel expert, Share 1 secret (exposé) you want to reveal to your fans who see your picture-perfect Instagram 😊?

Don´t just photograph everything and every time, also enjoy the moment without your camera or mobile phone in the hand. 

What’s totally different experience you want to dive-in 2019? A suggestion for travel enthusiasts? Places, experiences?

I want to photograph more people and tell their stories. 

How do you manage to travel in such a small age?

I often get invited by tourism brands to photograph in their region or I’m on assignment for a brand. 
But I also travel a lot on my own costs.
