Hey there,

my name is Hannah Smentkowski and I am the sole creator here at Hannah Unbound.

     I started this venture with an undying passion to follow my dream. A dream to explore and protect every natural setting this planet has to offer and to share these beautiful places with others. I also hope to inspire people to take their own adventures, big or small, and pursue their lives with passion and an open mind.

     I have been practicing photography for over 15 years now, and my focus is creating photographs that trigger the senses with texture and soft lighting. All I've ever wanted to do is travel and be outdoors, experiencing and capturing every moment I can. Now I have the platform to share my vision and knowledge with all of you!

A little bit more about me...

  My favorite ways to enjoy nature are:

  • riding my motorcycle 

  • paddle boarding

  • hiking 

  • identifying native plants (I'm quite the botany nerd)

  • backpacking/car camping

  • and taking pictures of all of it!


    My current home bases are in Colorado and San Diego, USA, but I'm frequently on the move and am willing to go almost anywhere at any time.

    Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have on outdoor experiences, travel, photography, or if there is anything I can do for you or your business.

I can't wait to connect with you!

Until then,

Happy Travels!
