We’re thrilled to present our story in pictures, courtesy of Two Wheeled Nomad’s photographer: Jason Spafford. When folks frequently ask me, “What camera are you using?” I always want to respond with, “Ask me what photographer I’m using…!” Hoping you enjoy the unfolding visual story, as much as we love creating it.  Take a peek at a sample of Jason’s commissions and funderwater portfolio too.

  1. Great photos. I have been to South america 5 times but not to the extent you have. You missed Angel Falls though. Given the countries present condition, I can understand why.

  2. if a pictures worth a thousand words then you have written a book larger than war and peace.

    I feel the emotions in every frame. You’ve painted with the lens a living story.

    Thanks for sharing your passion.

  3. I found your blog this morning and have just spent my lunch hour admiring your pictures. Yours are some of the most stunning travel images I have ever seen. I own a BMW 1200 GS and love to take pictures but I can only dream that one day I will be able to travel the world and take pictures that are half as good as these. Congratulations.

  4. I’ve just looked though your photos from the link you have on eBay and have to say they took my breath away and I mean every single image. For someone who has travelled very little outside of Britain, your trip actually defies my imagination. Extremely envious of what you have done.
