Damien really enjoys the outdoors and is always looking for new projects to feed his passion for photography. He works as a freelance photographer specializing in weddings, music reportages and fashion photography, but will embark in August on a unique expedition back to Australia from Belgium through Ukraine, Russia, China and Mongolia along with Bluey the Camera.
He and his partner Anastasia (Aussie but born in the Ukraine) have been thinking about this trip for a couple of years now. They have both always been very attracted to Mongolia and always dreamed of crossing Siberia and Mongolia by train. As Anastasia has relatives living in Odessa (Ukraine) and Moscow (Russia) they decided to spend some time with them before catching the trans-Mongolian train from Moscow all the way down to Beijing. Damien is looking forward to meeting her relatives and connecting with many other people along the way. He has even been learning Russian quite intensively for the last few months hoping it will help him to inspire and be inspired by the people that they meet.
