About Me

77 countries and counting...

CURRENT MISSION

To experience life as much as I can around the world and to capture it through photography. Just finished my 5 year work photographing over 100 major cities across all major regions for a large photo project and future books.

ABOUT ME

I hosted while I lived in Miami and loved it. I travel full-time now while working as a photographer, but currently living/based in Guadalajara. I love traveling and meeting new people from all over the world. I'm all about experiencing as much as possible and am always up for a good time. I'm outgoing, friendly, fun, open, and easy to get along with.

(My photography website is www.fdwalker.com if you want to check out my work. I have a blog too at www.ShooterFiles.com that follows much of what I do.)

And follow me on instagram @fdwalker , I love seeing other people's travels too!

Music, Movies, and Books

My musical interests are all over the place. I love any music that is blues influenced, anything with soul or that makes you move. Old and new. So Blues, Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B, Alternative, Folk, Some House and Pop, and more. It really depends on mood. I'm also really into lyrics (unless I just want to dance).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacked around Western and Eastern Europe and some of Asia, Carnival in Rio and Barranquilla, Full Moon Party in Ko Phagnan, Holi Festival in Mathura, White Nights Festival in Saint-Petersburg, and multiple photography projects around the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a passion/obsession for photography and my work has a focus on Street, Travel, and Documentary Photography. Mostly candid work, but I do also shoot some lifestyle and street portraits, and artistic modeling for paid work.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Insight on travel in cities around the world (77 countries), as I also write city guides in addition to my photography work. Postive and up for anything, but also respectful and fine with staying out of your way if you're busy.
