My Name is Dominik Feike (Instagram: @dominikfeike), I’m 20 years old, I’m currently based in the German alps and I’m a photographer.
To me, photography is more than just creating imagery, it’s some kind of habit almost. I take my camera wherever I go, cause there’s always something interesting to capture, and even if it turns out badly, it’s still a memory you know? It’s gonna stick with you forever.
People ask me all the time how I afford this lifestyle of traveling and to be honest it’s not as luxury as it may seem. I mostly travel with friends and other photographers.
We map out these locations we find interesting and basically sleep in stuffed cars or tents most of the time. But that’s what I love about it, it’s a very simple way of seeing the world which is honestly all I want. I mean, even if it means putting 5 grown people in a small car packed with bags, as long as I get to see stuff, I’m happy. We get up at 5am for sunrise to catch the best light, but it’s not just for the photo, it’s also just such a unique experience.
Home to me is wherever you park it, literally. It’s more of a state of happiness than an actual place to me. I think you can find it if you really let go of people’s expectations and find your inner passion. For me it’s always been deep inside.
I’ve always wanted to see the world and I’ve still got so much left to see. The more you travel, the more you realize how little you’ve really seen. This is the best feeling.
I wanna keep living this way and Inspiring others you know. So
it’s always an honor to work with brands such as Azedo, who support creators like me in their travels and make this whole thing inspiring to others. There’s so much out there, so I can only recommend you get out there and see it.
Whenever I’m in nature I get that deep relaxation, that 100% of now, it’s like some kind of active meditation to me. Only then I get to fully experience the moment, and that realization has always been the main reason I’m passionate about photography.
Breathing in that fresh mountain air is such a simple yet probably my favorite thing to do. Most things in life are for free and that’s just a perfect example I think. The wilderness is full of these free goods.
P.S. Hypegram is a new name for Azedo.
