Anna Pollock, Founder of Conscious Travel:
At the ATTA World Summit in Namibia and as a fellow participant of a study-tour/exchange between various Namibian tribes and leaders of the World Indigenous Tourism Alliance, I was able to watch Kristen work in the field. I worked side-by-side with her in remote villages in Africa documenting the Mafwe Tribe of northeastern Namibia (Zambezi region), and the San Bushmen Tribe. Kristen is totally at ease with persons of all ages and backgrounds and I was impressed with her ability to win trust and break down defenses or shyness so that stories emerged authentically and naturally.
Shannon Stowell, President of Adventure Travel Trade Association:
I’ve known Kristen Gill for several years now professionally as a writer and photographer. In a field of many competitors Kristen stands out for her excellent work creatively but also as a person who is really easy and fun to work with. Our experience over 8 years of putting on summits has given us the opportunity to work with a lot of different creative people and Kristen stands out as one of the absolute best. She did work for us in 2011 at our Adventure Travel World Summit in Chiapas, Mexico and most recently in Lucerne Switzerland. Her job was to be part of the Storytelling team that documented all the aspects of our event. She did an astute and creative job in a very challenging and rapidly changing environment with very little direction. Everyone on our team and in our community loves to work with Kristen and I give her the highest recommendation.
Lauren Hefferon, CEO at Ciclismo Classico:
Kristen is a passionate storyteller who I have known for several years through the Adventure Travel Trade Association. She is a very curious and accomplished photographer who is always looking for a new adventure story angle. Most importantly she is astute professional and wonderfully easy to work with.
