Ueli Frischknecht @runawayueli

My name is Ueli Frischknecht. I am a self taught travel, adventure and lifestyle photographer.

I was born and raised in Switzerland. After finishing my education in economics, I spent a lot of time traveling through different countries, mainly in Europe and South America. I always used to bring a camera with me to capture the best and most memorable moments of my travels. In the beginning of the year 2016, I decided to share my adventures with the world, that’s when I signed up to Instagram under the name @runawayueli.

The time passed and I got more and more into photography. I realized how much I actually love to take pictures and make memories last forever. Since then, I spent almost every weekend exploring the outdoors searching for the perfect light and mood.

Much more than taking classic postcard pictures, I focus my work on capturing the emotions and feelings of a certain moment. Today, my goal is to inspire other people to go outside, explore our beautiful world, searching for those unique moments that will let you speechless.

If you are interested in working with me as a photographer, I would appreciate if you head over to uelifrischknecht.com and have a look into my portfolio. For social media collaborations please contact me by email at ueli(at)runawayduo.com.

Rocio Arones @runawayrocio

My name is Rocio Arones. I am a self taught travel and lifestyle photographer.

I was born and raised in the capital of Peru. My passion for traveling started from a very young age and some of my best travel memories come from long – and sometimes spontaneous – trips across my home country. I remember epic journeys between dusty deserts and huge mountain ranges as well as visiting incredible ancient Inca temples. Later on, as my interest in history and arts increased, I felt the need to explore other countries and cultures. But this time, together with a digital camera.

After graduating from university with my bachelor in laws in 2008, I moved to Switzerland. Being exposed to a totally different reality only made my wanderlust grow bigger. As I continued my travels with stunning hikes in Europe, beautiful walks through jungles in Asia and more exciting cities in Latin America, my interest in photography got stronger. I felt inspired to grab my camera and head out on an adventure almost every weekend, always in chase of the perfect light or an unusual composition.

In October 2016, I started my Instagram account @runawayrocio. That’s where I share the beauty of the world we live in, without any creative boundaries. Much more than a travel diary, my Instagram gallery is a collection of moments that shall inspire you to go out and meet the world.

As a part of the Runaway Duo, I want to share with you the love for life, photography and travel in my Instagram gallery and stories. Say hello at rocio(at)runawayduo.com.
