About Ralph

Ralph Cope is a former manager in the hospitality business who wanted to do more than just make drinks. Though he enjoyed the thrill of bar-work and got pretty good at it, his passion was always travel and adventure.

In 2018, Ralph left the industry to pursue a full-time career as a travel photographer and writer. Though he had been traveling for several years prior, having visited faraway places like Mozambique and Borneo, this would be the first time he would sustain himself purely by his own means.

Ralph has since worked with several international clients and has helped them achieve their own creative goals. His clients include artists, online entrepreneurs, hotel moguls, and many more types of people, all of whom are a pleasure to work with. 

The future looks bright for Ralph. He is enthusiastic about his own business as well as the business of adventure itself. At no other time in human history has travel been so easy or so commodified. It is his ultimate goal to find the most daring and exotic places in the world, to document them, and to eventually lead people there.

This is what Ralph has to say about travel:

“In an age of globalization and digital connectivity, the list of unknowns in this world is getting ever smaller. There are so few blank areas left on the map, and so many once-exotic places discovered by the masses, that you’d think our spirit of adventure was diminished. Wonder still exists out there though; it is found in the little, intimate details and the vast, untamed vistas of our travels. Wonder can be touched on the dusty shelves of a French bookstore, and it can be felt in the harsh landscape of the Karakoram mountains. It is for these reasons that travel has never been more exercised or easier than ever before in human history. Adventure never ends, it only takes different forms.”

Photography

Ralph, being the avid traveler, discovered photography while on the road. He quickly developed an affinity for capturing the special moments that he would witness while adventuring, both in the wilderness and amongst other people. He is a dedicated user of mirrorless systems and he finds their lightweight, portability, and image quality to be very beneficial to his lifestyle. Check out his portfolio for a preview of his work.

Writing

While studying Humanities in college, Ralph developed strong writing and critical thinking skills. He nurtured the skill by maintaining a blog aimed at providing fellow travelers with tips and advice on how to be better travelers themselves.

In 2017, Ralph began working full-time for The Broke Backpacker and has since improved his SEO knowledge greatly. He is now very proficient at writing for online publications and is able to create work that is both interesting and recognizable. You can view samples of his work on his writing page.

Fieldwork

Ralph’s work goes beyond content creation. Since joining The Broke Backpacker, Ralph has helped lead and craft adventure tours in Pakistan and the Karakorum, which is no easy task. He must be attent, proactive, creative, adept, and, most of all, flexible. Regardless of any hurtles though, Ralph enjoys greatly leading fellow travelers and guiding them to even greater adventures.
