About Travis Snelling

I’m a photographer based in Hamilton, Ontario who specializes in creating emotional content through photos and videos. I mostly focus on working with travel, outdoors and adventure clients but I also do quite a bit of architecture photography as well.

I grew up in Hamilton, but honed my craft while living in Toronto. For the past 20 years I’ve had a camera either in hand or nearby, but it wasn’t until about 12 years ago while I was running a travel startup when I got invited by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism to take photos and document the trip for them that I first had the thought that this was something I wanted to do. After a bunch more assignments around the world I started believing I could actually make a living at it. But I wasn’t quite ready to fully commit to that dream…

Instead, I went on to become the director of digital marketing for G Adventures (one of the world’s largest adventure tour operators) and then subsequently co-founded the adventure travel startup Adventure.com. Digital marketing, web development and project management had always been my “day job” that just came easy to me, but photography and visual storytelling has always been my passion.

Over the past few years I’ve been able to gradually transition to doing more photo and video work, combining my love for travel, architecture and design to work with some really incredible clients. From rainforest lodges in the Amazon jungle to high end resorts in the Caribbean to ancient ruins in Morocco, I’ve been enjoying the journey so far.
