Collaborate

I have had a camera in my hand since I was a child and seriously began a professional career in photography during college while also studying television journalism. In my twenties, I concentrated on portrait and wedding photography before turning my lens to travel full time in 2010. Around that time I also transitioned my general photography blog into a travel-focused blog and began to accumulate a large yet engaged social following compiled of an audience interesting in following my burgeoning travel and lifestyle work.

My photography has been featured by print publications across North America, South America, Europe and Australia. My images have been used online by such outlets as Travel+Leisure, AFAR, The Huffington Post, BBC Travel, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Grazia.

Collaborate with Kirsten Alana

On a monthly basis I am regularly featured somewhere as a “Top Instagram Account to Follow” and am quoted as an expert in photography or social media by entities such as Curalate who specialize in digital marketing.

As a blogger since 2006, I am now adept at all the aspects of online and digital marketing businesses. My blog has served many brands and destinations as a terrific platform for those looking to connect with a global audience who follow my life specifically interested in my opinion and valuable knowledge of the world.

My blog is pushed out to all of my social profiles where an audience of more than 250K are highly engaged with my stories and photographs, constantly asking questions and interacting for the purposes of making their own informed decisions on photography, travel or lifestyle.

I have participated in several of the most awarded social media campaigns in the travel industry, such as the recent #Blogmanay phenomenon and the LAN Airlines #OnlyInSouthAmerica campaign. I was a VisitBritain curator for The Countryside Collection and was the first professional photographer to fly around the world on the new #FSJet in early 2015. Luxury brands seek me out because I am adept at presenting their businesses in a way that is accessible without being depreciated, and destinations choose to work with me for my skill in showcasing places in ways not seen elsewhere.

I do accept the occasional press trip or sponsored travel opportunity but only when centered around luxurious travel, eco consciousness, sweeping landscapes, food and wine or authentic urban experiences. I do not nor will I promote the large-ship cruise industry, backpacking, family or budget travel.

I do not accept unsolicited guest post requests, not even those which would be “of interest to [my] readers.” My site is about my personal travel and lifestyle, as such I am more than happy to endorse and represent brands that I have experience with and genuinely love. Any experience to the contrary will be handled between myself and the client first, before publication, though honesty on my site is a very firm policy. Should I receive compensation (financial or otherwise) for anything published on this site and/or elsewhere, this will be clearly disclosed. That is not ever negotiable.
