Riparide Stories

Capture and share your adventures

What are Riparide Stories?

Riparide Stories are real travel experiences captured and shared by our creative community of photographers, who we call Storytellers. Through inspiring photos, words and videos, our Storytellers bring our unique stays and local adventures to life.

So grab your camera, rally the travel crew and join us on our mission to deliver soul-fulfilling escapes. One story at a time.

Explore new places

In the words of Dr Seuss – oh the places you’ll go! We’ll work with you to find accomodation and adventures that fit you and your crew like a glove – or a good wetty on a winter’s surf.

Creative freedom

Enjoy the freedom to adventure and create content that fits your vibe. We keep our brief lean, so that you and your crew can actually enjoy your escape.

More exposure

Your work deserves to be seen. So we’ll feature your profile on, share your social handles and drive more eyes to your creative talents (or business).

Swap pics for trips

Besides free accom, we do our best to make sure you don't end up out of pocket. Storyteller payment will vary depending on your exact arrangement.

Make a difference

Join a community of like-minded creatives and inspire other people to chase soul-fulfilling moments. Help make the world a better place, one outdoor adventure at a time.

Meet our storytellers

Here’s what our Storytellers think about Riparide Stories.


As a lifestyle and travel photographer, my goal is to generate value for my audience so when sharing on social media or my portfolio, I always pick images that will deliver not just aesthetically but also allow people to discover new places. Being a Riparide storyteller is like connecting those dots – there's no better place to find inspiration for travelling and exploring our beautiful country.


I love being a storyteller for Riparide as it combines a few of my passions: appreciating great and unique architecture, seeing and creating beautiful memories that are documented through the stories we create, and meeting the hosts and hearing their stories. These stories inspired us to follow through with our own project – a converted bus called Gloria – an interest ignited by Riparide.


As a storyteller, an adventurer and a dreamer - my drive is to create purposeful and emotionally charged content, rooted in the belief that images speak to the soul of the viewer and are shaped by a passion for beauty, a heart for story, a search for connection, a desire for experience and thought-provoking content. While I acknowledge the value of aesthetics, I firmly believe that authentic storytelling is paramount.
