Passion Passport: 2017 In Review
Originally published on PassionPassport.com
2017 has been a monumental storytelling year for Passion Passport — and we couldn’t have done it without your support.
Back in January, we were only publishing a few stories a week. But that wasn’t the case for long.
By the end of this year, we will have published nearly 500 new stories. That’s absolutely incredible.
We learned photography basics, how to take the perfect flat-lay photo, and the elements of street photography. We got advice about drone photography, how to use geometry to enhance our travel photos, and how to master both indoor photography and macro photography. Then, Mary Quincy taught us how to edit our photos to perfection.
We took architectural tours of Copenhagen, discovered Tunisia, followed a photographer around Helsinki, discovered the perfect Italian city, documented every single national park, and learned about educational systems in southern African countries.
We heard more about Zach Murphy’s Faces of Places project, Annapurna Mellor’s ROAM Magazine, Briana Moore’s Travels with Quigley, and Brent Foster’s Legacy Project video series. And Yulia Denisyuk told us about her time in Jordan, Bethlehem, Latvia, Estonia, and Chiang Mai.
We discovered the mystery of Venice; the temples, streets, and people of Japan; the legends of Wales; the colors of Iran; the monsters of Balinese New Year celebrations; the art of in-between travel moments; and the chaos of the Birqash Camel Market.
We traveled to Senegal with the first iteration of the Passport Project.
We published photo collections, travel videos, how-to guides, interviews, Instagram spotlights, entertainment recommendations, transformative stories, essays, around-the-world advice, and tons of travel inspiration.
And we couldn’t have done any of it without the support of our contributors and the Passion Passport community. Thank you for joining us in 2017 — we hope you’ll continue to follow along as we unveil exciting adventures and projects in the new year.
