Seeing Life Through a New Lens

Around the World with Photographer Paul Vincent

Photography is all about perspective.

Paul Vincent has always had a unique one, which is what drew him to photography classes in college. Once he realized that taking photos was something he could do professionally, he did everything he could to make his dream happen. With hard work and dedication, he turned his hobby into a successful career that enabled him to support his family. He’s profiled all kinds of people, in fashion shoots and their homes and panoramic outdoor landscapes, using his work to tell the stories of others. But the dream didn’t end there. It was time to dream bigger.

Looking for a way to hone his craft, Paul thought about his perspective—and decided to change the way he sees the world. After years of planning and saving, this Minneapolis-based photographer is embarking on a trip that will take him to four continents in 25 days. He’s saying goodbye to his family and putting the rest of his life on hold, making no small sacrifice to tell his own story. His journey will take him outside his comfort zone in search of new subjects, landscapes and stories that will challenge and inspire him, both professionally and personally. Follow along and get inspired to bring your own dream to life.

Up in the thick of it. I'm often fortunate enough to be out on the first snow of the year, termination dust as Alskans say. Right @bkmiller_4? #ATWAdventure

Fitz Roy stayed hidden behind the clouds, occasionally glowing through the thin layers but never actually coming out to say hello. I'll just have to bring @kylie_vincent back to see it with me next time! #ATWAdventure #patagonia #fitzroy #whatswithin

El Chalten has grown a lot in the past 10 years but one thing hasn't changed, most roads still lead to the craggy cliffs and mountains that encircle the town. #ATWAdventure

It can be hard to grasp the scale of #chamonix. I think this helps, but it's one of those things in life you have to experience for yourself. Glad we had a bluebird day for it. #ATWAdventure

High up the ridge of Single Cone outside Queenstown yesterday. The weather moved in shortly after the heli dropped us and we ended up climbing in wet snow. Not the most ideal but remarkable non the less. @mattbrue and @bbrue put together a solid performance on their first big mountain experiences. #ATWAdventure #getoutstayout

Feeling small amongst the foothills of Wanaka. After driving around in the rain last night, we found the sun on the pass from Queenstown to Wanaka. It's a shame that Ben isn't walking on a ridge filled with sheep, they are just about everywhere else. #ATWAdventure @lakewanakanz

Day 1 in New Zealand. We got in early, killed some time before hotel checkin, then headed to Piha. Incredible way to spend the first night with an awesome sunset and some guys ripping in the water for us. New Zealand, you're alright by me. #ATWAdventure #newzealand #surf
