Yan Kaczynski is a filmmaker, adventure photographer and environmental activist.

 

Kaczynski’s favourite subject is the human being in a natural context. Through his work, he constantly seeks to present the human being and the environment as a symbiotic whole. The two are not meant to be separate entities. Restoring this connection is Kaczynski’s way of helping to ensure the sustainability of our environment.

 

His photography and aerial imaging services offer a blends of authenticity and attention to the real sensations and raw beauty of nature. His creative process, work ethic and selection of clients with whom he collaborates transcend the same values.

 

For Yan Kaczynski, the important thing is to connect with the human and non-human world and to inspire by spreading the positive impact of nature through immersive outdoor experiences.

 

One adventure at a time.
