When Adventure Meets Photography: Introducing EyeEm Adventures

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Feeling adventurous? So are we! Join EyeEm Adventures.

A few weeks ago, some of the EyeEm team decided spontaneously to have an adventure at Spreepark, an abandoned amusement park in former East Berlin. It was super cool, kind of creepy and a completely brilliant place to take awesome, unique photos.

Then we thought, “Wait, all around the world there are cool, unique places, perfect for photographic adventures!” And with that, EyeEm Adventures was born.

Now, it’s your turn. Host an EyeEm Adventure and get your very own Adventure bag!

Let’s get started. How to host YOUR own EyeEm Adventure
It’s as easy as 1,2,3…

  • Pick a special, secret, amazing or downright unusual location you always wanted to explore
  • Whether it’s an abandoned amusement park, a magical forest or a completely breathtaking urban landscape, there are no fixed rules about what is and is not allowed – only that it should be unique to your area, safe and awesome to photograph. Figure out where and when you want to go.

  • Invite your friends
  • EyeEm Adventures are only fun when the community joins in. Post about it on EyeEm, set up a Facebook event, tweet about it, knock on doors, do some sky-writing. Whatever you need to do to rustle up a gang of fellow fun seekers!

  • Let us know!
  • Email Cat and she will send you digital high fives, help promote your Adventure and send you a one-of-a-kind EyeEm Adventure bag for carrying all your essential adventure goodies and supplies.
