Today I am so proud to launch my online storytelling platform 4ever.travel. Having worked for print media all my life, I have now taken the next step towards my future as an online storyteller. And that’s pretty exciting, I can tell you.
From black & white documentary photography to mixed media storytelling
A lot has changed in the media landscape over the past 25 years!
My journey in visual storytelling evolved from war zones to pristine paradises. I started out as a black & white documentary photographer covering current affairs in the Middle East, before making a total transition to travel and adventure photography. As the publishing industry changed, I evolved with it and started writing stories with the pictures. When the magazines demanded video for online use, I learned how to create edited short items.
Juggling with photography, text and video I was getting intrigued by the power of mixed media. But the Photostories multimedia storytelling masterclass in 2015 truly inspired me to launch 4ever.travel.
Launching this platform is only the first step
And here it is. And this is just the beginning. What can you expect the coming weeks? Step 2 is that I will start sharing full feature stories every 2 weeks, populating the storytelling platform and roll out it’s social media strategy.

I want to create beautiful travel stories for you, so your feedback is much appreciated.
