There’s still hope to see this beautiful animal live many more centuries if not millennia on Earth, but we need to take actions now. Since the start of the 20th century, the population of wild African elephants declined from 3.5million to only 415,000. If you do the math, that’s an average of 26,411 wild elephants that died or have been killed each year since 1901. 26,411!!! WWF estimates that 20,000 is the number of wild African elephants being killed each year for their ivory (that’s 55 a day!). But this isn’t taking into accounts other causes such as the loss of their habitat (halved over the last 40 years, and that now is only 15% of the surface they used to have centuries ago). Now, what can you do to help the population increase again? Take a few minutes and visit www.savetheelephants.org. Many interesting resources that need to be read, and if you ever want to get involved you can always donate to help the charity with their mission. Let’s do our best so our children, grand-children and further generations will also be able to live in a world where elephants still exist, and where those creatures live a peaceful and protected life side by side with humans. 🙏

Two hours earlier, we were surrounded by 500 people on an overcrowded beach. We then decided to drive to the mountains, just 45min south, in order to find peace. That’s the beauty of Asturias.

It’s one thing to witness this kind of view, but the happiness that comes after hiking for hours in thick fog and eventually emerging above the clouds to see glowing mountains in the distance is almost indescribable. That evening in the French Pyrenees will be remembered for years to come. >> @lolosjohan

This is my second summer spent in that truck, and I have to say I still have to find a road that will give it a hard time. Absolute freedom while traveling around Europe. Already 40,000km traveled, 16 countries visited, and not a single break down nor flat tire (knock on wood). Thanks to the guys at @toyota.europe for trusting me as their 4x4 ambassador, and for allowing me to access to some pretty remote and less taken roads! And thank you guys for your insane feedback and amazing response to my new project @lolosjohan. I’m excited to see so many of you were waiting for something fresh and unique on Instagram. I hope I’ll fulfill your expectations :)

@lolosjohan.// Exactly 5 years ago I bought a one-way ticket to Australia without any other plan. It happened that it was also a one-way ticket to a complete and unexpected new life. The life of being a travel photographer. Since I embraced this new career, I’ve been fortunate enough to have a large audience to share my work with, and many of you ask me questions about a specific place I visited in the past, or ask for general advice about photography. I’ve been putting a lot of thoughts recently about why Instagram should keep being a special place for travelers and creators. When I started as lebackpacker, I could find so much inspiration on the app, and every image I was posting about my travels in Australia and New Zealand seemed to inspire others too. The reality today, at least from my point of view, is that people scroll down their feed as a daily habit and an image needs to be impactful enough in less than a second if it wants to attract the viewer’s attention. Because of that race for strong images, we creators want to make sure we’re getting the best out of the content we post, therefore risks aren’t taken anymore and we stick to what has been proven to work well: hype spots, trendy places and all those classic Instagram photos for which I’m guilty of too. I want Instagram to be a source of inspiration again to you, in the same way it has been to me when I started 5 years ago. I don’t want to create photos that will be seen 0.5sec only, I want to create images that will make people stop scrolling, and read the story behind. I want to share tips, advices and all sorts of stories that might be relevant to some people. Behind most of my photos, there’s hours of research, of planning, of Googling about how to get to a spot or how long does a hike to a peak take. And I thought that all these info might interest some of you if I compiled them all in one single place. This is why I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new project that is now live on @lolosjohan. It’ll be an illustrated guide about my travels and about photography in general. All displayed in a new creative and unique way on Instagram. I hope you’ll like it!

I have to admit that wherever I went along Portugal’s coastline, the scenery took my breath away.

The less famous yet incredible Cirque de Troumouse in the French Pyrenees, shot from a drone. I had to wait two hours for the thick fog to go away and the rain to stop before being able to witness the magic of this place. @djiglobal

No wonder why this location has been used in many movies and series. It’s just so photogenic and doesn’t look like Europe at all. But well, with such a rich landscape diversity, what does Europe actually really look like? Shot for @toyota.europe, featuring the mighty and undying Toyota Hilux.

As soon as we crossed the border from France to Spain, the first thing that caught my eye was how different the architecture can be on each side of the Pyrenees. And on this one, Spanish win big time, sorry France.

Neouvielle Nature Reserve in the French Pyrenees is truly unique. There’s actually no other place in Europe where trees grow so high (2600m). What an idyllic place, no matter what the weather is.
