Hipcamp Journal

Photographer Spotlight: Andrew Shepherd

Field Scouts are experienced photographers and camping aficionados who shoot and verify the accuracy of private Hipcamp listings.


I love capturing moments that can tell a story. Building empathy with the viewer by sharing a moment of vulnerability of relevance with the subject in the photo is always my goal.

Photos can literally change the world. A single captured moment can help or harm, and when used for good, interest can be generated in a subject. By documenting camping, travel and the outdoors, I believe we are helping to preserve the environment and tradition in our own way. By bringing relevance to these topics, tangible effects can and will be seen.
