Justin Bastien is not your average director and photographer - he isn’t even your typical human being. His tales of travel and adventure will leave you looking for your jaw (hint: it’s on the floor). Catching him in a moment of stillness is a rarity. When he is not working a job you can find him deep water soloing in New Zealand, catching waves off the coast of Chile, or camping out of his van in Joshua Tree.

Justin’s path of wanderlust led him to photography and capturing his incredible adventures to share with others. To him, it was a platform for seeing the world, learning, meeting new people, and of course having fun. Like all his other hobbies, photography became a new terrain to learn and Justin never does anything half-heartedly. He threw himself into absorbing everything he could from any resource around him and creating something new from it.

This self-proclaimed vagabond does it all. He is a photographer, director, DP, and even steps in front of the lens. Moving or still, Justin’s work pulls you in on his crazy adventure and makes you feel right there with him. Impossible does not deter him from a job, if anything it attracts him even more.

If you are ever lucky enough to meet Justin you will find a humble and talented man. His positivity and passion for life is contagious. With one photo he will inspire you to pack a bag and take off for an exotic destination. Just make sure you have a few hours to hear his stories, I promise you will
not regret it.
