My name is Hannes van Eeden, also known as the Wandering Ambivert, currently living in Cape Town, South Africa.

I tell stories with my camera.

What is an Ambivert? It is a person who has a balance of extrovert and introvert features in their personality.

Here I share things I’m passionate about which includes things like photography, film, travel, nature, life, etc.

My goal is to break down the complexity of photography and share everything I know and learn along the way, and most importantly, to inspire you through words, photos and films.

I live my life by Seeking Discomfort.

My anthem is High on Life.

I believe in enjoying the small things.

I live to inspire.

“The best camera for photography is the one you have with you.”

“Start every day with a smile. When you smile, for me, it represents gratitude. It represents that I’m alive. I celebrate the fact that I’m alive. You know, what a concept to celebrate the fact that you have another day of your life which is the greatest gift you can ask for.

Another day to create whatever it is you want.

Another day to pursue your goals, your dreams.

Another day to experience life to the fullest and to experience all the gifts and joys life has to offer.”

Become the best version of yourself. Be kind. Spread the love.

  1. The more I learn about you and you share your gift of art, the more excited I get and inspired I get to share my streams of consciousness with the world! If we all took what we have been blessed with and shared it with humanity, this world would be as God intended! โ€œTo those that have been given, much is expectedโ€!


  2. Very inspired to see your thoughts and resources in your site, I am still on the process of correcting my eye’s vision that I lost due to wearing glasses on an on. Best of wishes for you and for all of your family members.


  3. Thanks for the inspiration – I need to get out more with my camera! I love landscape photography. My greatest achievement (so far) was getting a pretty good shot of the Milky Way from deep in the heart of Southern Arizona where the sky was truly dark.


  4. Iโ€™m glad to know you in this space! I enjoyed learning about you. And I am also an ambivert! Thank you for sharing your amazing captures. The world is filled with such beauty.


  5. I’m an ambivert too! Not many people know what that is! You have some great photos here. I love photography too–although my blog has a lot more words that photos.


    1. Hi fellow ambivert! That’s true. Although I’ve noticed more people become familiar with the term and are using it more often.
      Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ What do you use to take your photos? Camera or phone?


  6. Very true: The best camera that you have is the one that’s with you. This tends to be my iphone right now but I’m picking up my DLSR more now that the hour has gone back — more light. ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Enjoyed my journey through you site Hannes, stimulating and encouraging. At school I was a member of the Photographic Club and did my own developing and printing. This not only taught me a fair amount about photography, but life and living too. Keep up the good work, especially your sharing with others.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the journey, Peter! I hope you come back for more. I wish more schools today had photography clubs. I’m eager to hear what it taught you about life and living? Are there a few things you can highlight?

      Thank you! I absolutely will! ๐Ÿ™‚
