Well it’s been quite some time since I last made an update but here I am, back again, with a few changes.
As some of you may know, I changed jobs a few years ago. I was fortunate enough to get a job as a photographer for a popular cruise line, the idea to be able to travel the world, taking pictures and being paid to do it somehow appealed to me. This experience was unbelievable, creating long lasting memories, lifelong friends and a fondness for living and working aboard cruise ships.
Working as a photographer only lasted for a few months – the job wasn’t for me. I missed having creativity with my photography and anybody who has worked as a photographer onboard knows creativity is pretty much non-existent. But what was I to do – I loved life onboard. I love to travel – I still love to take pictures. I met my new partner onboard and from there it has been a whirlwind of an adventure which has led to many exciting adventures.
I now work onboard as a Cruise Consultant – working with guests to help plan their next adventure with my company. It’s an amazing job to have – I get to talk travel every day – share my experiences (and lots of photos) with them. The best part of the job – because I am travelling the world I get to go and explore – with my Fuji XT2 taking WAY too many pictures. But you know what – I love it! So that’s what these changes are….I am not home enough to be able to carry on with what ‘Daniel Vickers Photography’ used to be. It has had to change and adapt to what Daniel Vickers is doing with his life right now.
So ‘Daniel Vickers Photography’ is now going to be a place to showcase my experiences and more importantly my images from around the world. It will be a mixture of places been over my years of travelling and some of my more recent adventures.
So, I hope you enjoy as much as I will enjoy taking the pictures.
