Stephanie Van der Wiel

“Life is about daring. Dare to admit that you do not fit somewhere.”

Stephanie Van der Wiel’s thirst for adventure was well established by the time she was a child, traveling all around the world with her father, a pilot. Later, as an adult who’d been to law school and was working within the comparative confines of civil law, the desire to see the world was still strong within her, as was another of her passions: photography. Despite having no formal photographic training, Stephanie left the legal realm and pursued her dream, which led her into the orbit of another world-traveling photographer, Jimmy Nelson. Internationally renowned for photographic work that sheds light on indigenous cultures, Jimmy brought Stephanie onto his team where she works on (360) filming, photography, writing and global production. Mongolia, the Marquesas Islands, Papua New Guinea and Chad are among the countries on their visit list, while a recent expedition to war-torn South Sudan saw them photographing the culture and customs of the remote Mundari people. Stephanie describes working with Jimmy as “the ultimate combination of indulging in unique cultures and creating art, that will inspire future generations.”
