My name is Wayne. In late 2009 I had had enough of my hamster wheel lifestyle in Vancouver Canada, sublet my apartment, threw a few things in my Nissan Xterra and drove across Canada on a road trip, living out of my vehicle, during WINTER. It was the best thing I could have done.
Since then life has been all about getting back on and staying on the road full-time. Things have evolved from the Xterra, to having a small vintage trailer to now adventuring in a 25 foot 5th wheel trailer, mainly because for awhile I was not alone. LaDonna and the best Springer Spaniel in the world, Lua were with me for close to two years. We had some amazing times and some troubled times. We have since parted ways and I am to continue this adventuring alone. I have no regrets as we shared some amazing times together and I choose to remember those, not the struggles we had.
I’m back on the road again but not totally alone as I thought I might be. This time I have a new co-pilot and best friend. His name is Rollins and he’s the best dog ever! Here is where I chronicle our adventures while we travel and I photograph as much of North America as possible, meanwhile gifting portraits to people less fortunate via my “pay it forward” photography project. Aside from the portraits I do with Fotos Forward I’ll be searching out ghost towns, iconic landscapes, derelict cars and buildings to photograph. As well as writing and making videos about the people we meet along the way and other quirky places I find. It’s all part of the grand adventure and I hope that you’ll join us.
