A journey into the world of travel photography & storytelling by Marion Payr.
As a photographer and storyteller I believe in the power of imagery and stories to convey values to future generations and deepen our understanding for each other and our globe. See what I mean in these recent stories I created!
It’s been 4 years since I first set foot on Zambian soil and I swore to return. 2023 finally marked the year where I could make my promise come true. Zambia will forever be my love!
After raising 2.1 million dollars for conservation non-profit African Parks since 2020 I got to visit Rwanda to learn what the impact is on the ground.
During a recent trip to Kenya, I learned more about the intricate connection between tourism, conservation and community welfare.
For my 40th birthday I decided to return to one of my favourite places – the Yucatán peninsula. And of course I didn’t leave my camera back home.
In Botswana I stayed in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan for a starry night sleep out. There’s no better way to feel deeply connected to nature.
During a 3 week guided tour of Rajasthan I had to learn to appreciate the sensory overload while getting a peak behind the curtains.
Dedication & Care
At the centre of my work is a dedication to the art of conscious and responsible travelling, which unites us globally and can act as a driving force for cultural understanding, sustainable economic growth and wildlife & nature conservation. This is the kind of work I seek and how we can best collaborate.

From curation to an
I’m not just a photographer, but inherently curious & passionate about the tourism industry while having a background in journalism.
Therefore I work with an editorial approach on each of my assignments. I’m not only interested in the visual and aesthetic aspect of my work as a photographer, but also seek to discover and document the underlying stories in candid detail.
My photos are equally important as my research about the places I visit and with my writing I can add another layer to the travel stories I create.
This is a small selection of my long-term clients. Working together in a collaborative manner for years creates a deeper level of mutual understanding, which I appreciate and which also shows in the work that we get to create together. I’m thankful to be able to collaborate with such wonderful brands and the kind & caring people behind them.
