Passion Passport  We love to tell impactful stories about travel. Tag your travels: #passionpassport! Editorial/marketing inquiries:

"My fascination with photography comes from my architectural studies. Over time, I've begun to see how the two are beautifully, inextricably linked, which allows me to connect with my work on a deeper level. I no longer ‘see’ the buildings; I 'feel’ them."
@nicanorgarcia Istanbul, Turkey
What places make you "feel"? Describe the experience, and share your photos, boomerangs, and videos to #passionpassport!

"As a travel photographer, I try to dig into a place and understand it so that its spirit can shine through in my photos. To me, this shot is a portrait of the Karelian region. It’s a little mysterious, a bit dramatic, and full of atmosphere. Almost like a portal to another world."
@alex.mazurov Karelia, Russia

"Copenhagen was built by its people for its people, and what makes it so unique is not its architecture and design, but the way those things are used by citizens and tourists every single day. As a Dane, if you love to do something, you eventually have to ignore the bad weather and continue in spite of it. Kayaking along the canal in subzero temperatures (or waiting on a bridge to take the perfect photo) might seem crazy to an outsider, but once you’ve learned to live with the weather here, it starts to seem a lot crazier NOT to."
@viktorsylvester Copenhagen, Denmark

"As someone who grew up extremely shy, photography became a way for me to bond with others. In the cold morning hours before the mosque flooded with tourists, I observed this local basking in the warm rays of sunlight. Seeing him alone through the lens of my camera, I felt connected in a deep way."
@kartik231987 Taj Mahal, India

"I spent the entire day watching as the countryside slipped by out of the windows of two trains, then a boat, then two buses. It was beautiful, but visually overwhelming at the same time. Then, as our bus drove down the adjacent highway, fighting against the wind, I noticed the way the sun lit this valley. It was a much needed moment of relief in the midst of an otherwise exhausting day."
@nhatgeo Stalheim, Norway

"Monument Valley is a place of deep contrasts — between the red rocks and the blue sky, between the film representation of this place and the reality of it, and between what can be seen from the valley and what can be seen from the peak."
