Author: Athina Cantle Date Posted: 7 June 2018
Glacier rivers, Norwegian villages, and moody snow capped mountains, are just some of the things that you'll find in taking a visit to Max Chesnut's Instagram profile, @ExploreWithMax. This globe-trotter, photographer, and elephant enthusiast is a must-follow for travel inspiration and a daily dose of serenity in your newsfeed. Luckily for aspiring photographers, Max is keen to share his wisdom offering week long photography tours in the world's most breathtaking corners such as Iceland, Norway, and Ireland.
OD: Tell us a little about your photography tours, where did you get the idea?
MC: So each photo tour is a 7-day adventure focused on exploring some of the most beautiful places around the world like Iceland, Norway, and Ireland. The idea came from my first trip to Iceland where I had a friend say they would love to explore these amazing places, but have no clue where to start. So I thought hey I know all the amazing photo spots, accommodations, and best times to travel, why not take care of all of that so you can just come out to shoot, explore, make friends, & learn.
OD: What is it you enjoy about teaching others?
MC: So I have actually been teaching since I was 14 with skiing & snowboarding at my local mountain and I fell in love with seeing my students excitement when they finally got a new trick or made that first turn. Same goes for teaching photography when I see my students get stoked about learning.
MC:Hands down the comfort, durability, and fit. Honestly I wear my Dusty jeans nearly every day because I haven't found a pair since that fits me perfectly. Not only that but the fact that Outland Denim empowers women and fights human trafficking.
OD:How do people interested in joining a photography tour find out more?
MC:The best way to sign up for a upcoming trip is to visit my website Maxchesnut.com and apply on the post on the front page or check out the link on my Instagram @EXPLOREWITHMAX.
