I work for Swain Destinations, a travel company that specializes in customized trips all over the world. I love to take pictures, am quite awkward, put myself in uncomfortable situations and will eat anything. The world is an incredible place. See and experience as much as you can.

The moment I heard the plans for the Field of Light installation in Northern Territory, Australia, was the same moment it became a must-see experience on my travel list.

Soaring through the Clouds

I graduated AFP this past Sunday!! I had two great jumps and one very educational jump. One step closer to my license. This video was my second jump of the day – first time doing flips, so use your imagination on that front flip. It’s tough to describe the feeling as you progress through the stages of skydiving, even this early on. From the first wobbly time...

Island Hopping in Phuket

Bangkok’s cosmopolitan immersion and Chiang Rai’s jungle adventure set the perfect stage for some Thai island time. Onward to white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and a beach umbrella to protect my sunburn prone skin. SPF infinity, please.

3, 2, 1, Bungy!

I was finally able to Bungy while in Queenstown New Zealand. What a rush. The sensation you get when you watch the ground flying towards you while in freefall is incredible. The Nevis Bungy is New Zealand’s tallest Bungy!

Becoming a Mahout in Chiang Rai

After three days of city exploration in Bangkok, our Thailand journey continued into the jungles of Chiang Rai. My inner adventurer was screaming out for the wilderness, wild animals and a touch of adrenaline. Chiang Rai was chosen for a reason. This is where the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle was.

The first days were spent exploring the city sights and river canals of Bangkok. Here are some of my favorite moments and images.

Uncovering Mount Hagen

Not too long ago I was fortunate enough to travel to one of the last unexplored corners of the Earth, Papua New Guinea. Before I set off on my journey I had only had second-hand knowledge of this fascinating country, however over the next week I would intimately get to know so much about this captivating land. I hope you enjoy the evolution of my...

Papua New Guinea in 46 Images

I will never forget the uncertainty I felt when I arrived, and the sadness I felt for having to leave. The people of this beautiful country brought on such happiness. No amount of imagery could showcase the beauty and diversity of Papua New Guinea. Enjoy a few of my favorites, out of the thousands I took.

Australia Rediscovered

I took entirely too much footage while I was traveling, but managed to pick a few of my favorite shots and moments. I used this footage/project to teach myself Adobe Premier Pro. Through that, I mostly learned all the ways I should have shot differently! I hope this entertains and inspires you to experience the different parts of our world.   Cheers, Ian II

Southern Ocean Lodge at the Edge of the World

Kangaroo Island is probably the furthest away from the familiar I’ve ever felt while traveling. As soon as you step off the plane, you get this sense that you have set foot in an entirely new world. It’s a feeling that must be on your bucket-list – to feel completely immersed in something unknown.
