I have this new friend in my life who teasingly refers to me as Type A. If I’m being honest, I’ve been a little bit
You are inspired by beauty and look for it in the most unlikely of places. You’ve read Art Wolfe’s “Travels to the Edge – A Photo Odyssey” from cover to cover. If you have to make a choice between a tripod or an extra pair of strappy black sandals, that dress you’ve packed will have to find a way to work with flats.
When planning a trip, you ensure you build in enough time in each location to ensure multiple shoots under different lighting. You are patient and inquisitive. Things can’t be rushed for you. Like the Culture Vulture, you are intrigued by the human experience. The words “Say Cheese” are only ever uttered in a trattoria – never ever when snapping a portrait.
Once outside urban dwellings, you are at home with mother nature – whether you prefer mountainscapes or a pride of lions captured on the savannah, you’ll have the perfect lens at the ready to make the shot. And unlike the Travelista or the Escape Artist, getting up at 5 AM to catch a magical sunrise, even if it means missing breakfast, is something you wouldn’t think twice about. You probably consider yourself an introvert, shy, reserved. Willing to hang for hours as the light dips and the crowds disperse. Your main travel goal is to document and capture moments to share.
The Photog travels best with The Culture Vulture and the Zoologist.

I’m Diane Molzan, founder of the Digital Travel Academy
I’m a traveller just like you. My travel style is Allocentric but truthfully, I’m probably a mix of all of the travel styles – depending on the moon, the tides and whatever hormonal shifts are going on with me at the moment.
I started the Digital Travel Academy to show other travellers how they can build a career out of doing what they love most – travelling. I’ll be sharing all my insider tricks and tips. And if I come across a great industry deal, I’ll give you the scoop on that too.
So be sure to stay subscribed.
In the meantime, I am building a course that offers a step-by-step guide that will show you how to start your own travel business and make good money at it. More details on that to follow but for now, let’s keep in touch.
You can drop me a line any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love connecting with fellow travellers.
Until next time, safe travels!
