Who are we?

JRNY travel magazine was conceived by Kav Dadfar and Jordan Banks. We are both full-time freelance professional photographers and writers based in the UK. Through our company That Wild Idea, we share our passion for photography and travel with others wanting to learn in the form of photography holidays and workshops around the world.


But first and foremost we are freelancers so like everyone else in the industry, we have had to watch assignments and work cancelled throughout 2020 and already in 2021. We have also had to watch many of our friends and colleagues in the industry lose their jobs.

It’s not just at home that the effects of the last 12 months have been felt. Many of our colleagues in destinations that we visit rely heavily on tourism which as I’m sure you are aware has completely dissipated.

Our common goal

JRNY travel magazine has come about from the positive feedback that we have received from the many writers and photographers we know as well as the general public. Our goal is to create a magazine created by travellers for those who love to travel. You won’t find advertising, freely sourced photography and articles written by just anyone. The writers and photographers in this magazine are amongst the most talented around and will be paid for their time.

Our goal is to come together as a community of travel lovers to help this beleaguered industry recover a little bit at a time.

What to expect?

This is a magazine for those who love a sense of adventure. More “exploring” rather than “resorts”. There will be a range of different travel experiences from a variety of destinations. Articles will be in the form of written features, round-ups and photo essays. 

From unforgettable road trips to unique festivals around the world. From hiking in the wilderness to wildlife, these are travel experiences and adventures for you to enjoy, brought to life told by award-winning writers and photographers. The aim of the magazine is to inspire and stir that sense of adventure that we all share.
