Instagram ID: @TRAVISBURKEPHOTOGRAPHY
Travis Burke was born in San Diego, California. He started photography about 5 years ago when he picked up his first DSLR with no experience.
He started Instagram 3 years ago after being talked into it by some friends.
"I thought Instagram was just another fad that would die out quick, little did I know a few years later it would be landing me high paying job and connecting me with some of the top companies in the industry.
Travis's photography style is Outdoor Adventure. I really enjoy his feed as it brings me right to the places he is in, every time I look at his posts I just feel like I want to experience that adventure myself!
Travis Burke’s diverse and creative approach to outdoor adventure photography stems from his own perspective on life. His dedication to conquering anything thrown at him and living life with no regrets shines through in his photographs. Whether it’s highlining over a 400-foot canyon, backpacking the entire John Muir Trail or capturing the Milky Way Galaxy in remote locations, Travis is constantly pushing himself and the boundaries.
Travis’ client list includes working with world-class companies such as Subaru, Starbucks, GoPro, ESPN and more.
Here is Travis sharing his amazing adventure story with us!
I am currently on a 1 year road trip around the USA and Canada. The images I choose to show are from some of the wonderful places I have visited along the way. These images happen to all be self portraits, traveling in my van to remote locations there are a lot of times will be the only one there. Self-portraits have been a challenging yet rewarding way for me to capture the experience. I love putting a human in the landscape because it adds an extra element to the image, giving people a better grasp of the overall size and beauty of the location and hopefully letting them transport themselves into the scene.
Favorite camera: Nikon D800 and GoPro Hero 4
Favorite things other than taking pictures: Participating in the adventures I photograph, whether that is backpacking, skateboarding, highlinging etc. I love to participate and be involved as much as I love to photograph.
Favorite places: The Western United States has an endless amount of beautiful and diverse locations. I am also excited to visit New Zealand soon.
