Daniel spends 9-10 months each year travelling the world, sometimes staying in one place for a week and other times 1 or 2 months. Daniel describes his continuous travelling as “Living the World” and being a “World Citizen” Currently, he is working on two long-term projects. One of these is a yachting expedition called: “Two poles”. travelling from Saint-Petersburg to Antarctica, through Svalbard and Greenland, along with one-week workshops.
Kordan’s photography career started with painting, and then he applied his scientific skills that later developed into photography. Building a great landscape portfolio has also taken many years. It’s not something you finish in a matter of months; it takes years of hard work. During his first years building a portfolio, he was not recognised as a photographer due to a lack of experience and little or no feedback on his work. He was not commissioned and was solely working for himself. After spending 7 – 8 years of my career, just forming skills and a portfolio, the hard work started to pay off (with licenses, print requests and plenty of returning customers on his photography workshop tours). He became widely recognised and, from there began to make it a livelihood.
Daniel still feels that he has a lot of areas to explore. and dreams a lot about upcoming adventures studying the world map with great excitement, knowing there are always fascinating things to experience when visiting new destinations. For example, Kordan reflects on an astonishing astrophotography trip in Bolivia and Chile, where he visited wonderful locations for a mind-blowing night photography experience.
