Joel Caldwell: Expedition Photographer

Last week, we gathered to hear from expedition photographer Joel Caldwell. Joel (and often, his bike) have traveled to the far reaches of the globe to explore, take photos, and come home with key messages to share.

“My wish is that expedition photography will continue to take me to remote, off the beaten path kinds of places and to stories worth telling. I love the contrast of spending time somewhere intensely rural and then returning to the big city – it’s like an ice bath. Living within these two extremes help me better understand the world.”

After Joel’s talk, the rest of the night was spent chatting, looking at bike maps and dreaming of our next expeditions:

And of course, a huge thank you to Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. for bringing us beer and supporting the entire Inside Mappy Hour project! You can watch other Mappy Hour talks online here:
