It’s Playtime: 10 Shots to Awaken your Adventurous Side

By Jonathon - 3 min read

Let’s go on an adventure with these 10 gutsy photographers

Not all sports are about winning and losing, first, second and third. Not all athletes strive for gold, silver and bronze. They do it for the adventure, for the challenge, for the adrenaline. For the love of it. We can’t get enough of people being active and photographed in a way we’ve never seen before. Like the collection of photos below!

In a recent contest we ran with Canon, you shared the emotions of you and others around you on your travels, expeditions and adventures. Congratulations Xav Rev, whose photo has won him a Canon EOS M10! Take a peek at Xav’s shot – along with the 9 runners-up – below.

About the Canon and EyeEm Partnership: Storytelling and photography go hand in hand – and this is so much more than simply documenting a person, a location or an experience. It’s about adding a distinct perspective, a voice, a stance and even humor to your images. That’s why we’ve teamed up with iconic camera and imaging brand, Canon.
