Unplug, unwind & explore in Canada. We caught up with our friend, Jon Trend after his time in our neighbor to the north. His nature photography blows us away so we had to get the inside scoop.
We got to chat with the ultra talented Aussie, Yasmin Mund. The travel photographer has a lot of creative ventures & we needed to know more!
EYES & EDGE: Your accomplishments are incredible, as is your photography. Can you tell us what led you to photography, and in particular travel photography?
Yasmin Mund: I started experimenting with photography when I was in high school. I took a photography subject and my school had a few film cameras, a dark room and some digital cameras. Knowing vaguely that I wanted to do something ‘visual’ I enrolled in a Design Visual Communications degree that I didn’t really love until my final year, where I undertook an honours project on universal dreams and dream imagery. I spent the year researching and creating working only half a day per week at a photo studio to pay the bills. It was one of the best years of my life so far. I learnt so much about myself as an artist and developed the start of a style for myself as a photographic artist.

Each year, What The Festival marks the beginning of summer in the PNW for us. The Splash pool is nothing more than summer on steroids – beautiful people grooving to loud, booming music. Camping at Wolf Run Ranch while hanging out with your friends surrounded by Mt. Hood is perfection.
This year, we were blown away by how many Portland artist & DJs took over the 8 stages. The talent from Portland was stacked with The Last Artful, Dodgr & Neill Von Tally kicking of Friday night. Later that night, at the ultra vibey Shinto Stage, Barisone had a dope, down tempo set. Throughout the rest of the weekend, Tyler Tastemaker, Mr. Wu, Reva DeVito, Eastghost & the whole Stylss crew really made a mark on the WTF?! line up.
The What The Fest family does a fantastic job hosting the 8k festival goers. It’s truly the best boutique festival out there in our opinion. Make sure to add WTF?! 2018 to your calendar.
Red Bull Sound Select is kicking off a huge party next week. Starting on Thursday get ready for 3 Days in Portland!
Portland is the second chosen city to host the 3 Days series, following Miami. We have big shoes to fill. Let’s make sure Red Bull Sound Selects isn’t disappointed in Portland’s love for music!
