Preparing for Japan: a photo diary

I wrote a few weeks ago about photographer Richard Nixon's marvellous Glass Passport Project, where he exchanges his photography for life's basic necessities of food, accommodation and travel.

After he did such a good job at Yestival, I invite Richard to join me for a day on my houseboat, Enigma, to capture my preparation for a journey around Japan, by kick scooter.

Here's the result!

The San Miguel Rich List

"Adventure makes us rich, and I don't have any money!"

My final line in this montage of clips taken from a 1000 mile crossing of Scandinavia by pedal kayak.

Little did I know that two years later San Miguel would be choosing me as one of their final 19 (out of thousands, I'm told) people who are truly living a rich life. Cool, hey?!

Check out this photo piece in The Guardian newspaper, and read about the other members of the Rich List

The Glass Passport


Richard Nixon (no, not that one) had a cool idea and he made it work.

He quit his job and now he's sharing his skill - photography - in exchange for life's basic necessities; travel, food and accommodation for the duration of the trade. He hopes to travel to every continent as part of his Glass Passport Project.

I asked Richard to come along and take photos at Yestival in October, and he was so awesome I asked him to come and spend a day with me before I went off on a journey in Japan.

Here are some of the pics he got that day.

If you need a photographer, for your business, event or some other lovely reason, give Richard a call, he'll do you proud!
