The Wanderlust of.. model and photographer Franggy Yanez

He works as a model and photographer, plays the guitar (and can sing!) and you’ve probably noticed that he looks pretty yummie!
His talents and popular Instagram account (180k followers) take this nomad around the world. Lucky for us, he took the time to talk to us about one of his other passions; Travel. This is the Wanderlust of Franggy Yanez.

So in short, who are you and what do you do for a living
My real name is Franggy Yanez, born and raised in Venezuela, but moved to Europe to change the world in 2005 (i failed miserably). What i do for living varies in many ways, i like to call it a ‘Creative Adviser’ since I work in several fields; Photography, Modeling, PR , Branding, Social media influencing etc..

Sounds interesting! You travel a lot for work, how many countries have you visited?
Ok wait a sec.. let me count.. mmm as far as i know i have been in around 15 countries.

Where have you shot your most beautiful picture?
This may sound cliche but my most beautiful photo has been of my niece and nephew every time I go back home. They are just 2 and 3 years old but they have such an amazing personality and are so loving that my camera just can’t stop photographing them!

What is the most beautiful place you have ever been?
I gotta say, the landscape in Thailand stole my heart

Which country is on your bucket list and why?
Oh Australia definitely, love their culture, their landscape and the people seems to be very photogenic over there ;)

We love Australia too! So what is your nr. 1 place in the world to make beautiful shots?
Honestly, since I do mostly portrait photography, i don’t think a place would determine my final shots, I find faces everywhere so i just go with the flow.

“I am more attracted to people and their culture than a place itself, therefore backpacking allows me to have an inside look at their lives and places”

Have you had any bad experiences whilst traveling?
Yes, like most travelers I had some bad food poisoning (Thailand), hotels disasters with reservations (France), lost luggage (USA). But nothing major luckily!

What is one travel essential you would not leave the house without with?
(Answers without hesitation) My camera’s!

What language is the most sexy in the world to you and how many do you speak?
I find any language well spoken really sexy, it’s more about the way the person talk, manners, refined way of talking in any language wins me more than the language itself. I speak fluently English, Spanish but not fluent but a little of Dutch, Italian, Portuguese etc

Heel goed Franggy! Name one song that would definitely be on your travel playlist
We Die Young by Alice in Chains
That’s a classic, love it. Last but not least; What kind of traveler are you? (backpacker, Luxury, Explorer, Beachbum etc)
Definitely the Backpacker/ Explorer. I am more attracted to people and their culture than a place itself, therefore backpacking allows me to have an inside look at their lives and places.
