About Gus Woods

If you need any more evidence that I know nothing about photography, check out this self-portrait – negative space failure.

Hi, I’m Gus and I’ve been living in China for almost 4 years.  They’ve been an amazing 4 years, full of ups and downs and adventures.  I’ve learned to speak a bit of Chinese and I’ve traveled all over the country.  I thought at one time that I might end up spending my entire life in China.  But there’s a problem.  I’m bored and I don’t want to settle down in China and neither does my Chinese girlfriend, Anna.  Quite a conundrum.

I’ve been working as an English teacher in China but I’ve decided that this isn’t what I want to do for the rest of my life.  You see, since moving to China I’ve developed two intense passions.  One for travel and one for photography.  So here’s my plan.

I’m going to travel the world, supporting myself teaching online along the way but I’m also going to be taking lots of pictures and filming every day of my journey.  I want to share images that inspire me with the world and share my adventures on youtube so others can be inspired to take on a life of travel.   I’m a major amateur when it comes to photography, videography and travel writing, but you have to start somewhere.  I hope you can suppress your cringes as I fail miserably and have the heart to follow me on my journey.

My ambition, way down the line, is to become a working travel/adventure/landscape photographer.
