The Upcoming Journey

The Upcoming Journey

Workaway, Volunteering, and Photography ~

Onawalkabout, aka John Stebbins Photography, has quite a few destinations coming in the next few months. I invite you to follow along. I am accepting donations for an upcoming trip to Nepal beginning in September. Details found below.

Plans for John Stebbins Photography over the next few months:

Bali Blog Coming Soon ~

Current location – Bali, Indonesia Departing July 4th (short 3 day trip to Singapore June 1st) I am currently doing a workaway on the Southeast side of the island. If any one has ANY requests for photos they wish to buy from my time here, please let me know and I will get those specific ones processed and made available on my website for sale. You can purchase direct from me via Paypal and email transfer of digital prints. If you wish a larger print, I will post them in my store.

Malaysia, Thailand by train, and Laos ~

July 4th Departing Bali for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Train trip from KL to Laos over the next 6 to 10 days. I have been invited to work in Vang Vieng, Laos from July 10th through the end of August. The work will be Social media, photography, and videography work for a local eco-hotel. There will be a full post on both the journey from Malaysia by train as well as my stay at the hostel and one for the surrounding region. Which from what I have seen thus far is stunning.

Nepal ~

I have been invited to hike both Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base camp in October and November. I will be making photos available from there immediately after my trip.

This trip to Nepal is one of a lifetime. The Universe has placed this in my path and I am answering the call to go. I am currently looking at flights into the region along with the possibility of workaway’s there for the month of September.

There are still multiple schools and homes that need help rebuilding and I want to take the month prior to hiking to document the need of the region and lend a hand with the skills that I have in construction and medical care to those families and communities still suffering. If you wish to make a donation for me to apply to helping these communities I will make sure they get to where they are desperately still needed, please specify what the donation is for in a message when sent. You can click the PayPal button on the homepage to donate to any trip, charity, or to purchase any of the photography on my website: Webstore

I have had no opportunities to return to the United States to work presented to me at this point. I would love to return to see my family and my friends, but the cost of leaving the region and returning by October 2nd is not something I am capable of doing at this time. I am processing photos every moment that I can and I am making new content available. My photos are from a variety of locations in multiple countries and I invite you to take a look and purchase the ones you love. I still have a sale ongoing for Metallic prints in my store.

I AM accepting any and all donations for this upcoming trip to Nepal. If any of you are willing and able to donate to this trip, it will go to my expenses in the region. I have the gear I need. I am getting my cold weather gear shipped from Japan.

As for anyone that wishes to donate, please email me at johnstebbinsphotography@gmail.com and I will be happy to discuss ways that I can send you something back in return for the gift. you may also click the Paypal button on this sites home page.

As always, John Stebbins Photography’s chief goal is to inspire you, my followers and readers to go out into this world and find your path. To give to the communities and people around you that are in need. To find your peace in your life through travel.

My books are still in an ongoing process and I am still planning (read hoping) to release “Charlotte’s Adventures in Willow Grove” by the end of this year.

Once I leave Nepal I will be traveling to Japan from the middle of December until the middle of March of 2018 for work. This time I hope to have more free time to visit the backcountry of the Japanese Alps for both photography and videography of the region.

If you can assist my friends, that would be amazing. If you are unable to, I only ask that you share my message. I love you all and I will keep going and inspiring, every day I still have breath in my body.
