[I]f you come on a Wilderness Collective trip, you can leave your camera at home. Actually, we’ll kindly ask that you leave it, and your phone at home. Let’s face it; we live in a world that is obsessed with documentation, and largely self-documentation. There is a collective instinct to capture the moment and share it with our network. It’s as if we’re afraid that if we don’t upload the moment it might be lost forever, forgotten by us and never seen by others.
We want to create experiences for you to be present in the moment rather than feel the frantic urge to capture the moment–-so we bring along talented photographers and film-makers to do the work of chronicling the trip for you. We hope that you’ll slowly stop reaching for your non-existent phone and instead apply that energy into soaking up the experience, committing it to lasting memory.
