Who AM I?
My name is Rob Stamm and I am a 21 year old photographer / videographer / consultant from NYC. For the past 3 years, photography has really became a passion for me and it has taken me to some really amazing places. With all of these experience and knowledge, comes a great opportunity and responsibility – to share and spread my wisdom.
Though I attended college in a traditional way, it only took me 1 semester to realize it wasn’t for me. I wanted more. I wanted to see the world! I ended up dropping out of the traditional route and decided to pursue my degree entirely online. I got myself 2 jobs in NYC and made my way from the suburbs of MA to my new home. Now here I am two and a half years later, loving life and enjoying every day. I feel that it is my true calling.
Where did I go?
By making the jump to go about my education entirely online, it had enabled me to run around the globe while continuing my study. To say that I did a “study abroad” program would be an understatement. Wherever I had Wi-Fi, I was in class! During that time, I visited 6 countries, went across America as the social media lead for a non-profit endurance athlete race which raised $700,000 for underprivileged girls in Kenya, and worked with numerous companies for marketing pushes. I even graduated with my Bachelors Degree from an RV somewhere around Arizona during that endurance race I just mentioned!
The point is, by going about my degree this way, I have not only picked up the general classroom knowledge I need, but also gaining so much more, things I can’t learn from textbooks. I’m currently pursuing my Masters Degree, and I can’t wait to continue learning both inside and outside my Wi-Fi classroom!

Traveling for me has become a way to push myself and grow. I no longer feel comfortable with routines. I want to do new things, meet new people and explore new parts of the world for the rest of my life! Every day I fantasize about where I will go next and what images / videos I will capture along the way to share with my followers, friends and family. For me, traveling is not a hobby. It is a lifestyle. Once you go somewhere, and truly embrace yourself in that journey, there is no coming back to a routine life. There is something new around every corner. Why would anyone ever want to stop? I don’t plan to stop any time soon, that I know for sure.
I call NYC home base but I am always planning the next adventure. Recently I went to Peru with my family and visited the breathtaking Machu Picchu. You can read more about things to do in Machu Picchu. If you want to follow my journey, check out my Instagram @Robstamm14. I also have my website which features my past photography work. Feel free to reach out to me any time. You can even recommend me a place that I should go. Maybe we will be in the same place at the same time in the near future! Let’s see what kind of images we can create.
