Hey. I’m Matt Maynard. After cycling 5000miles on that bike below through South America and wild camping with the penguins of Tierra del Fuego to the snapping cayman of Paraguay, I settled to live and work in Santiago, Chile.

Originally from the UK, I have freelanced as a writer and photographer in South America since 2011. Increasingly I write about environmental issues such as air pollution and ocean protection. I also write about self-powered adventures and travel by bicycle and on foot. As a fluent Spanish speaker I provide reliable, informed and engaging English language content from Latin America and beyond.

I freelance for a wealth of international publications, most recently including Geographical Magazine (Raising Valparaiso, February 2017), BBC Travel (documenting Easter Island’s otherworldly festival,) The Guardian (picture of the day), to Outside Magazine, Men’s Fitness, Triathlete Magazine and Red Bull.

I also have in-house editing skills, working at Men’s Running where I continue to write the monthly column “King of the Mountain.”

If you are interested in words or photography from the continent or beyond – drop me a line – it would be great to have a chat about what I could do for you.  If you’re coming through South America on an adventure and want a hand with logistics or want contacts with other local photographers, feel free to get in touch too.
