Overview

Hello, my name is Casey French. I am a landscape and travel photographer from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Over my career, I have been fortunate to have my work published through media outlets such as Footprint Travel Guides, CNN International and National Geographic. Beginning in Spring 2019, I will depart for a long-term, humanitarian journey around the world. Over the past few years, I’ve been gradually transitioning to a minimalist lifestyle, purging things that no longer add value to my life. I paid off all prior debts and obligations (yes, even college!) and managed to save up enough money to fund my travels. I’m left with a single backpack for my essential items, my camera bag, and $10,000 of my personal savings.

This is not a revolutionary idea. Nowadays, young people travel independently all the time, documenting their vacations through social media and filling those back home with envy. But more often than not, travelers set an unobtainable standard of reality, feeding egotistical tendencies at the expense of local populations and their environment. I want to set myself apart from this trend and do something more authentic and meaningful. 

Therefore, this unique experience has two objectives. As a photographer, my intention is to show the beauty of the world around us, truthfully. As a human being, I hope to spend the majority of my travels collaborating and volunteering with humanitarian organizations and nonprofits. 

Current Objectives
•  Compiling, editing, and writing a photography book of my favorite travel shots.
•  Patrons will be acknowledged inside for making this publication possible.
•  Begin shooting portraits of those I encounter along the way and share a glimpse of their lives.
•  Collaborate with a local nonprofit organization to bring awareness through my photographs. 



It won't be easy leaving behind my friends and family to pursue this dream. But the more I wait, the further away this dream seems to become. I want to dedicate all my energy into something worthwhile and stretch out this once in a lifetime opportunity for as long as I can, as efficient as possible. I will find refuge in hostels, stranger’s couches, and hammocking in odd places to keep my budget to a minimum. This will allow me to continue my work as a travel photographer.

Your regular monthly support on Patreon will play an important role in my work. From post-processing software to living expenses, every dollar will enable me to continue doing what I love. Regardless of what tier, your contributions are tremendously valued and will be utilized in order to provide quality content and photographs. In return, my patrons will have access to personalized workshops, tutorials, and advice for aspiring travelers and photographers. I won’t be completely dependent on your contribution for funding, but hopefully, this platform will eliminate some of my worries in order to focus on what's important. If you ever decide you no longer want to be a patron, you can cancel at any time. But I hope you can become part of my journey.

Thank you so much!
