My favorite way to enjoy my Airstream is on the road, from traveling to photograph for my dog books, teaching workshops and branding to animal shelters and rescues around the US and Mexico, and attending music festivals and rallies. Good ‘ol Airstream beach camping in Northern California is also a nice break from the working trips that we take during the year. And I’ve taken my Ambassador to Burning Man seven times.

Travel partner:

Having my dogs Komet and Indie with me makes the long driving days much more fun! Oh, and I never forget to take my girlfriend Wenda along for the ride.

Camper or glamper?

I’m a Glamper by default now. After having been attacked by a bear—yes, a bear—on the LAST tent camping adventure I went on, I have never looked back and don’t regret my decision a bit. High Style is the way to go now! But I keep decorations very minimal; less to clean up and pack along.

Must-have items:

Stylish whiskey tumblers, some nice honey whiskey, and a great playlist on the iPod.

The ideal Airstream day:

Maddie and AlbertPlay hard during the day, then settle back and relax at night. Explore, hike, bike or thrift shop in a foreign land, followed by a nice campfire, then cocktails and friends.

Passionate about animals, Albert recently returned from a journey from Reno to Canada to Montana and Utah photographing for his upcoming book featuring avalanche rescue dogs. His first book, Born to Run, highlights the canine athletes of the famous Iditarod sled race held annually in Alaska.

Albert also uses his work to express concern for animals and bring attention to homeless dog conditions in the US and Mexico. His photos of homeless pets taken at more than 25 shelters and rescues have helped generate awareness—and a 100% adoption rate for the animals he has photographed.

Albert will be attending Alumafandango 2016 in Jackson CA this September and taking professional photo portraits of pets and their owners during the event. The photos are free, but a $25 donation to animal shelter/rescue organizations is requested.
